#1 He certainly mishandled it. But the Captain deserved a relief for cause.

#2 A lot of wacky shit going on in the Navy lately. Do you suppose there is something in the water?

#3 A clusterfuck of epic proportion.

#4 The ship captain acted to save his men in the face of a high command of depraved indifference.

The SecNav was the one threatened by his behavior, because he's the one who stood to get the blame. Good that he got shitcanned.

The carrier skipper took one for the team. His crew cheered him as he left. They knew what he did for them. Fell on a grenade and took its terrible burst.

#5 I don't think so Scooter. The ship captain gave shore leave during a pandemic.

#6 The captain was the hero in this, as far ad I am concerned. And the civilian idiot who didn't care about his plight to begin with is just another example of bad bureaucracy.

Water, heh.
Seriously, the squid fish rots from the head. Sh!tty leadership explains a lot of the weirdness.
