This story is the obstruction of justice and conflict of interest trial of Richard Schaller in the US District Court in Pensacola FL in July 2009. The Schaller trial climaxes the longest white-collar criminal investigation in Air Force history. Its impact on the war on terror was devastating. Schaller advocated the special operations capabilities of the Air Force’s Battlefield Airmen, war fighters who bring all elements of airpower to the war on terror. Air Force leaders want no part of special operations, Battlefield Airmen, or the war on terror. Schaller walked the halls of Congress effectively, rallied innovative small businesses, and won the support of leaders at the Air Force Research Laboratory and the Air Force Special Operations Command to develop imaginative capabilities for the Air Force’s Battlefi eld Airmen. But Air Force officials were threatened by Schaller’s campaign for special operations capabilities, ambushed Schaller, and drove him out of business and into oblivion. This story is taken from the court record of the Schaller trial and is a chilling revelation of the angry tactics the Air Force, prosecutor, and judge used against Schaller. Not since the trial of Brigadier General William “Billy” Mitchell in 1925 has America witnessed such a significant courtroom test of our national security actions. This story is mandatory reading for all who believe in our Constitution and the continuing fight against powerful government officials to whom the Constitution is a crumbling relic and obstacle. The work of freedom never ends. Witness history.
