    Acting Navy secretary blasts ousted aircraft carrier captain as 'stupid' in address to ship's crew

    Acting Navy secretary blasts ousted aircraft carrier captain as 'stupid' in address to ship's crew - CNNPolitics


    CNN)Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly blasted the now-ousted commander of the USS Theodore Roosevelt as "stupid" in an address to the ship's crew Monday morning, in remarks obtained by CNN.

    Modly told the crew that their former commander, Capt. Brett Crozier, was either "too naive or too stupid" to be in command or that he intentionally leaked to the media a memo in which he warned about coronavirus spreading aboard the aircraft carrier and urged action to save his sailors.

    The acting secretary also accused Crozier of committing a "betrayal" and creating a "big controversy" in Washington by disseminating the warning so widely among Navy officials.
    Betrayal- The crew was betrayed due to lack of action by you

    Next- US Navy incidents which resulted in the deaths of Sailors, investigations held, then the CO/others would according to evidence be disciplined or not

    Yet hen accidents occurred, resulting i a number of Sailors deaths due to poor training, over tasked crews. What happen to the higher levels of oversight- Sweet **** all (SFA)

    You were in the chain as the Navy had many of these

    I am sure of what the crew thinks of you and none of it is positive

    Why have people like yourself not been fired for incompetence?

    Thomas Modly - Wikipedia

    Modly served as the managing director of the PricewaterhouseCoopers global government and public services sector and as the firm's global government defense network leader. He has served as the Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Financial Management and as the first executive director of the Defense Business Board.

    He was nominated to become Navy Undersecretary by President Donald Trump in September 2017 and was confirmed by the U.S. Senate two months later.[5]

    I'm sure this is good for moral in the Navy.

    Oh I am sure it will do wonders for poor morale.
    Moral down, make it worse- show the Sailors you cannot plan and act quickly, referring to the Carrier, then trample the mans reputation

    Old story but true

    Our Minister of Defence was visiting a number of ships in Halifax.

    As the MoD went from ship to ship, so did a certain Bosun.

    He answered questions from the Sailors, moved to another ship.

    On and on

    On the last ship the MoD went, Bosun stated he had a question.

    Sir you have answered a high number of Sailors questions, but I have not seen anyone taking notes

    All this Modly guy had to do was nothing at all, and instead he chose to do this.
    Watching the live action version of Jerry Pournelle's "Crazy Eddie" concept.

    What makes you think morale in the Navy is low?
