The Department of Defense Inspector General's Office
apparently will investigate how Peterson Air Force Base
handled a complaint about an open Bible
on a major's desk in a common area, which we reported about here
After Col. Damon Feltman
ruled it was OK to display the Bible as Major Steve Lewis
had done, the founder of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation
sent a letter to the IG's Office seeking further investigation. Mikey Weinstein
alleges it's improper for the commander who allowed the Bible to be placed on the major's desk, Col. Lisa Johnson
, be the one to further examine the issue in response to a complaint.
Here's the letter Weinstein wrote to the IG:

Weinstein says the IG's Office has requested additional materials be supplied by MRFF to aid in the investigation.
