US Air Force Academy alumni joins in condemnation of Capitol Hill siege

Last week, the head of the US Air Academy’s alumni association, Lt. Gen. Michael Gould, was asked if his group’s board members thought the attack on the US Capitol was justified. He waffled.

Kathryn Smith, a graduate of the US Air Force Academy, speaks with The World’s Marco Werman about racism and white nationalism in the US armed services.
