So much for trying to sleep in.

I'm of the firm stance that this captain deserves to have been fired AND court-martialed.

I'm glad he cares about his crew. I'm furious that he put the world on notice that our Pacific fleet is now unready.


Starting from the same facts, I arrive at a very different conclusion.

Looking at Crozier's record (what we as civilians can see of it), this action seems out of character. That should lead one to ask "Why did he do that?" It does not appear that the SecNav asked "Why?" -- he just fired the guy. Yes, it's bad that the world was put on notice that one of our carriers is down. But ... why was it necessary to send that letter via an open, unclassified channel? I'm not so sure it's Crozier who should be court-martialed. Maybe it's Crozier's direct superior, or maybe his superior, who should be court-martialed.

I'd love to know who's decision it was to hit that port of call, though.

The black vests at the beginning of the clip that say "Military Police" (approx 1:00 in) are body armor, but they are also the standard MP uniform now.  All MP's where that everywhere that they are armed (unless going battle rattle).  What's really disingenuous is that she uses a bunch of contemporary footage from news stations of traffic stops, and checkpoints at train stations and airports, where folks are just in duty uniform and unarmed (except MP's) but when she starts talking about the DOOR TO DOOR SEARCHES OF TOWNS !!!! she pulls old and/or stock footage of other events.  4:11 is a still from the searches in Boston after the Marathon Bombing, 4:14 looks a lot like a PAO photo of riot training. (note the riot shields, and instructor yelling commands) and 4:15 is a guy standing outside in ACU pattern so it's a while ago.  It looks like he's giving a statement to a civilian LEO.

Splicing stuff like that in right after images with dates of the current events is pretty shady.


Thank you.

In the end, Pfizer pulled out of New London, nothing was built on the land, so instead of increased tax revenues the city ended up with an ugly eyesore of a wasteland that hasn't generated any tax revenue at all for a decade and a half. The houses have all been torn down and the land is still vacant today.

Why in the what are they wearing helmets? And were those black vests body armor? Huh? Looks kinda Jade Helm cosplay.

The "door-to-door search" seems to consist of knocking on doors in New Yorker summer home neighborhoods and telling people they have to self-q if they've just gotten back from NY. So that, at least, is not quite as bad as it sounds.

I'd also mention that it was SECNAV that relieved CPT Crozier, and SECNAV that made the statement.  Secretary Esper does not appear (correctly IMHO) to have gotten involved with the hiring/firing of an individual Navy O6. 
 

My bad. Yes, you are correct -- SecNav, not SecDef.

This happened about 450 yards from my property.
Fortunately no damage that we've been able to find to our house, but my next door neighbor had two windows blown out and a sliding glass door knocked from its track.  The Longview fire marshal is supposed to be coming out to inspect his house.

The explosion was loud enough that it almost shook me out of bed.  My first instant thought was our house had been struck by lightning, but the weather was clear.  Then I thought a plane had crashed in our yard (we are under the base leg of one of the Hickory airport runways).  Looking out our windows quickly disproved that notion.
Neighbors were swarming outside, trying to figure out what had happened.

Quite the start to my day.

There were no serious injuries at the plant where this occurred, which is fortunate indeed as there were 44 persons employed there.

Here are a couple of other links to stories.

ETA:

My sister-in-law heard the explosion in Hudson, sixteen miles away as the crow flies.
One of our fellow church members who also lives in Hudson called to ask if we were okay.  They heard the explosion, as well.  Her husband thought someone had kicked in their basement door and went searching for the bad guy.
