Navy Video Scandal
January 4, 2011 by staff
Navy Video Scandal, Raunchy comedy videos made by a naval commander of U.S. senior and shown with the crew of an aircraft carrier, three or four years ago have suddenly been a source of embarrassment for the Pentagon that could burn career agent.
The videos, released Sunday by a newspaper in this port city Marine, Captain Owen Honors function using gay slurs, pantomiming masturbation and held shower scenes suggestive. They played on the television system throughout the ship during the night when the weekly honors film was director general, or second in command of the USS Enterprise. Since distinctions became captain of the ship.
Over the weekend, the Navy initially downplayed the video as “comedy sketches,” so called “unacceptable” and said they are under investigation.
Asked if the command Honors of the company was in peril, Cmdr. Chris Sims of American forces Fleet Command told The Associated Press in an email: “The ongoing investigation will provide the information necessary to make an informed decision.”
The existence of the video has not been on the rise of the new Navy-ups. In a statement to the Virginian-Pilot, Friday, the Navy said its leadership had put an end to videos with “inappropriate content” on the company four years ago.
“They were probably hoping it would go away, and he did not and now they have to say something,” said Michael Corgan, a career officer in the Navy who now teaches at the University of Boston.
Honors Corgan said was guilty not only of a misjudgment, but not to recognize a change in marine culture. “Changing standards, of course, and trimming your sails is something you should do if you go to control people in the Navy,” said Corgan. “This guy showed a lack of information.”
The army has undergone a cultural change in recent decades away from the loutish, frat-boy behavior that was exhibited by the Tailhook scandal in 1991. He now works to welcome hmosxls into its ranks with the repeal of Congress Do not Ask, Do not Tell. “In addition, the Navy opened its submarine force all-men to women this year.
Corgan said the repeal of Do not Ask, Do not Tell probably had nothing to do with the rage right now “. What he did was stupid 30, 40 years ago”
Some sailors who served on the company, are up for Facebook to defend its honor and video skits to provide a much needed morale boost during long deployments Wed
They portrayed honors as a man who truly cared about its sailors and helped them to romp with corny and sometimes shocking videos he put together each week during the six-month tour of service in the Middle East at the height of the war in Iraq. Maintaining morale is typically part of the work of the XO.
“He was a professional support and, yes, he has a sense of humor, but we need a boat,” said Misty Davis, who served on the Enterprise from 2006 to 2010. The offending video was shown in 2007, and was a compilation of videos before, he had shown her and others said.
“It’s no worse than anything you see on Saturday Night Live or the guy from the family,” Davis said Monday. “I used to watch all. They were freaking hilarious.”
The company is in the port of Norfolk and is awaiting deployment.
The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk first report on the videos on Saturday and Sunday released a version on his website, less vulgar language, with the faces of some marine blurred. We do not know why the videos are just now surfacing.
The pilot was quoted unidentified crew members as saying they raised concerns on board the ship on the videos when they were released, but brushed.
