Jura I agree with you 100%.
This situation was reprehensible. Simply reprehensible. This all boils down to extremely poor leadership aboard Fitzgerald.
I think it is staggering. I don't think reprehensible even begins to describe such conditions. Imagine how little those aboard that ship must care about the performance of their job to operate in such conditions. This speaks to a staggering level of dysfunction with the United States Navy. I cannot believe such poor leadership, training, maintenance, etc can exist isolated aboard one ship. I think the level of incompetence is mind blowing, like I don't even have the words to describe what those conditions are. It's like something from a horror story.
