There's a new probe related to allegations of religious intolerance at the Air Force Academy.

The Air Force has asked the Department of Defense inspector general's office to investigate allegations that a chaplain was fired after she complained that evangelical Christians were proselytizing.

The school says she was just transferred to coincide with the retirement of her boss.

However Captain MeLinda Morton isn't happy with the scope of the inquiry. She says the school is trying to treat the matter as a personnel issue instead of a question of constitutional rights.

An Air Force task force is already looking into allegations of religious intolerance and anti-Semitism but it failed to meet with two other outspoken critics of the school.
