Deborah Lee James speaks during her swearing-in ceremony as secretary of the Air Force at the Pentagon in Washington on Friday, Jan. 24, 2014.

WASHINGTON — Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James said Thursday that the number of nuclear force officers implicated in a proficiency test cheating scandal has grown to 92 out of a force of 500.

James spoke to reporters after touring nuclear bases around the country. The cheating has been found at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana. The Associated Press has revealed the overall nuclear force suffers from such low morale and burnout that they have committed serious security lapses and other breakdowns.

James, who is new to the job, said the nuclear force is beset by “undue stress and fear,” and said the nuclear force suffers “systemic problems.”

I resent the implication from the AP story previously when they interviewed only admitted cheaters. I served honorably as missiler for 4 years and never cheated or knew anyone that cheated on tests. Yes, it was stressful. And, yes, it was a tough standard. But, never ask admitted liars/cheaters who was honest or not. You KNOW they are liars, they've admitted the same.
