    they were made when he was XO.... a new admiral came into the fleet and curtailed the videos. Now he's CO (or was).

    That's right, shame really...this really is a question of how much the past effects us....Too bad really, we may be tossing out a really good commander, on the basis of PC.

    I have trouble providing the label of "good commander" to someone that not only willing participates in bigotry and alienation of military personnel but orchestrates the production and mass distribution of video's promoting said bigotry.

    I haven't watched the vids. can't at work, don't care enough to at home. but unless he was filming illegal activity or engaging in illegal activity, WTF.... Sometimes I think TPTB have a very large stick shoved up their collective asses.

    Sorta. he as the XO when he made these, not the old man. It's not something the XO should be doing pushing any boundaries of good taste, but then again he did not push them far. It's one of those technically wrong things that in my day we would have looked the other way.

    I honestly think it is was a matter of timing and that someone had an axe to grind against him. he probably got command over someone who got pissed and ratted him out.

    Well, we'll never know now will we? He has been relieved. So I guess the lesson is better not step on any toes of the TGLGB crowd or they will get you. Great.

    Nah. There are 6k people on a carrier. It only takes one person to make a fuss.

    Re: Navy opens investigation into raunchy videos

    Kids, these days video is trivial, and it's a common pass time to use video to communicate all sorts of things these days. 10 years ago you'd have to have to have put a lot more effort into taking a video, and it would also not have been one's first thought. These days, it's just part of every-day communication. We take videos of everything, much of which my parents "would not have been caught dead making a video of".

    Anyway, up to the military to figure out their video-culture change. high ranking officials often participate in comedy roasts, doing stupid or funny jokes, skits, etc. If this was a homebrew version, oh well.
