Journalists in the dark or assist Navy Cover-Up

BACKGROUND
A "shower scandal" is the latest stain on the U.S. Strategic Nuclear Force discipline, brought about by unnecessary integration of women into one of the most highly sensitive and highly disciplined military commands before needed. The press has aided cover-up attempts by Congress, the Air Force and Navy to minimize the potentially dire consequences of degraded discipline in our ballistic missile forces, by never publicly pointing their fingers at the root cause - mixing MEN and WOMEN.  In the latest scandal rather serious impacts of unanswered questions are being minimized for a VITAL reason: VITAL NATIONAL SECURITY. The cartoon below entirely misses the gravity of the scandal, which has also gone unnoticed by most of the public (U.S. only).

 

"Up to a dozen sailors are suspected of viewing secretly recorded videos of their female shipmates undressing in a submarine shower over a period of 10 months, according to a new investigative report obtained by Navy Times. ..." -NavyTimes  

"The scandal has marred the Navy's gender integration effort begun four years ago. ... there may be [sic] separate military consequences for bringing recording equipment onto a submarine or viewing the videos without reporting them."  NavyTimes


ME:  Does anyone assume conducting unofficial filming (videography) aboard Fleet Ballistic Missile subs has not marred the Navy either?

ME:  The scandal reportedly only broke after an officer on another sub was sent a copy of the shower video, and reported the violations within another chain of command. If that sory is actually true,  then the CO, XO and COB of USS Wyoming (G) are probably headed for desk jobs (initially). Talk about assigning women due to a looming shortage of male volunteers is bogus. Integrating women (more and more reluctantly, I might add) will amplify any shortage, and the PC-motivated (DACOWITS) move to assign womenn to subs seems to be backfiring. 

Who actually distributed a shower video copy to an officer on another sub?
a) an enlisted man
b) the Chief of the Boat
c) one of the women officers (RED FLAG)
d) the Wyoming (G) XO or CO?
e) Nobody (it is part of the Navy cover up)

Submarines are always silent and strange.

Strategic Nuclear Sub Officer's Quote of the Month

Assignment of supply officers to SSBN subs as policewomen for political correctness demeans normal, red-blooded males, undermines morale and imbeds a disturbing vulnerability into the primary strategic mission.

How can anyone except the current administration wonder why there has been a shocking deterioration in our once admirably disciplined Air Force and Navy  STRATEGIC nuclear forces?!

"The only reason I was there was to stop the submariners from being a--holes, and to get the women to stop crying,"   -

Stated to NavyTimes by an unidentified female Supply Officer (lieutenant) formerly assigned to a U.S. ballistic missile submarine. now retired. She was one the first female volunteers for the submarine force, and fortunately, is now retired from the Navy.
-------------- 
Can there be any worse folly than insertion of multivariate gender dynamics into traditionally well-run and highly disciplined U.S. strategic missions (Air Force and Navy nuclear missile crews)?  Combining biological clocks and nuclear triggers may be politically correct, but it was unnecessary and now appears imprudent.  Some of USS Wyoming's Gold crew have been sidelined as the investigation "continues":
 

Vice Adm. M.J. Connor, commander of the Navy’s submarine force, said in a letter dated Thursday that the alleged perpetrators have been removed from the USS Wyoming while an investigation is conducted. The nuclear-armed submarine is based at Kings Bay Naval Submarine Base in Georgia. - WJCL NEWS

While the alleged invasion of privacy is probably criminal and certainly regrettable, 
assignment of supply officers to SSBN subs as policewomen for political correctness is a disgraceful insult to normal, red-blooded male morale and imbeds a disturbing vulnerability into the primary strategic mission.

Submarines are always silent and strange.
