Relieved of Duty --Updated


Now that is a phrase I would like applied to virtually everyone in BushCo, but today it applies to a USN sub commander was relieved of duty for bad judgement. One can only assume he wasn't one of chimpy's cronies because when they exhibit bad judgement they get promoted. Two sailors were lost due to this crazy man's orders. Read the tragic story here, here, here,here.
I guess I should add that one of the sailors who died was my cousin. He was "Chief of the Boat" and didn't need to be outside. I believe he was outside in harm's way, to protect his men. RIP Tommy. Godspeed.

So sorry about your cousin, Hope. Senseless deaths of the young seem especially tragic.

He was just a little older than me. when we were kids I thought he was pretty cool for a kid.
