    Arguably the Captain of the USS Theodore Roosevelt should have been courtmartialed as well as relieved of his command, for revealing his ship’s vulnerability to our enemies.

    The danger is not very far-fetched, when we remember the attack on the USS Cole.

    P.S.: Outstanding podcast!

    Still waiting for a senior Naval Officer to back up VDH and his observation @ “The Mission”. I was a USAF Intelligence officer a billion years ago so…what do I know? Does the mission now take a back-seat to a frustrated Captain?
