Letter from Pr. Paul Dempsey, Director of the IASL, Regarding the Institute's Research Programs and Its Graduates

The article erroneously states, "The IASL . . . conducts research for the U.S. Air Force." This is false. The IASL conducts no research for or on behalf of the USAF or any other military institution.
