Mikey Weinstein’s Friends and Allies in Military High Places, Part 1
Despite his claims the US military is overrun by Christians trying to take over the world, Michael Weinstein seems to have more public allies in military leadership positions than he has public enemies. In addition, Michael Weinstein seems to have some very well-placed friends in the US military, despite his claims he is a David fighting an institutional Goliath.
In just one example among several, Weinstein claims a “close personal…relationship” with one Air Force base’s commanding general.
In a recent spat in which he needed to bolster his credibility with the local Albuquerque community, Michael Weinstein claimed to have a
close personal and working relationship with the Commanding General at Kirtland AFB.
Presumably, he is referring to having a “close personal” relationship with BrigGen Garrett Harencak, commander of the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center on the base.
Weinstein even gave a probable reason for his unique personal relationship with the General, saying his
daughter is a USAF civilian employee at Kirtland AFB, working in the same organization as the Commanding General.
If the father of every person who works “in the same organization” has a “close personal” relationship with the General, he must have a lot of friends. It’s also worth noting that Weinstein once lodged a complaint over an emailed Bible study announcement distributed at Kirtland Air Force Base — a complaint that was resolved in his favor.
It remains a fascinating admission of a “close personal” relationship between a senior military officer and a political activist, particularly since Weinstein has apparently tried to use that relationship — in his vendetta against ChristianFighterPilot.com.
