A 'Mother of All Lessons' for Would Be Naval Officers, VOTERS, and the USNA Admissions Office

WASHINGTON, April 26, 2011 (UPI) -- Navy concerned about synthetic marijuana

Seven (7) middies who used Spice were discharged from the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) in January. This was AFTER:

In July 2009, 15 Sailors aboard the aircraft carrier George Washington were discharged for Spice use, leading to a Navy-wide ban on the drug in March 2010. Seven students using Spice were discharged from the U.S. Naval Academy in January.

Two psychiatry residents at the San Diego Naval Medical Center reported the facility treated 15 service members between August and December 2010 for Spice-related problems, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported Tuesday.

Spice often causes problems including hallucinations, paranoia and debilitating confusion, lasting for days, say the doctors.

Pointed Questions:

1) How well has the USNA been screening the abundant pool of qualified candidates for admission, if well over a dozen (just those caught, by the way) did not even take seriously their eventual commissioning oaths nor suitability for becoming and officer? ANS: As you were, Admiral; NOT WELL ENOUGH!

2) In pursuit of the Political Correctness currently demanded by politicians who believe their careers in elected office merit in any fashion the threatening of dedicated Navy brass, how many of those dismissed were nominated by congressmen who ARE LAWYERS? ANS: All of them!

Submarines are always silent and strange.
