Col Kristin Goodwin Issues Second Statement Through MRFF
A couple of weeks ago, US Air Force BGen(S) Kristin Goodwin, the soon-to-be Commandant of Cadets at the US Air Force Academy, apparently issued a public statement through Michael “Mikey” Weinstein’s “charity,” the Military Religious Freedom Foundation.
More recently, Col Goodwin sent a message to the Department of Defense Inspector General — not through internal DoD channels, but through Weinstein’s MRFF. Regarding complaints filed by the MRFF against US troops, the MRFF’s civilian lawyers spoke again for Col Goodwin when they told the IG [italics original]
Brig Gen (Sel) Goodwin is not a client of MRFF… She, however, has relayed to the MRFF that she remains amenable to being interviewed by your investigators.
Interesting dynamics at play.
A few years ago, Mikey Weinstein claimed he had a “bat signal” connection with USAFA that allowed him privileged access to its leadership, presumably allowing him unusual influence over internal USAFA affairs. He subsequently lost that access when he wore out the goodwill of USAFA leadership — because of his incessant attacks on religious liberty. It was a bridge he burned with fervor.
It would seem another bridge has been built, early.
