WASHINGTON — The Air Force will more carefully screen future candidates for nuclear commander positions as a result of the recent firing of the two-star general overseeing land-based nuclear missiles,, the general in charge of the service said today.

“We’re going to add more rigor,” Gen. Mark Welsh, the Air Force chief of staff, told reporters, including the addition of an Internet search of the person’s name that could turn up any damaging information. Welsh said the change has nothing to do with the job performance of Maj. Gen. Michael Carey, a 35-year veteran who was relieved of command last month for unspecified personal misbehavior that other officials said was related to alcohol use.
