USS Enterprise Capt. Owen Honors Temporarily Relieved of Duty
ABC News ^ | Jan. 3, 2011 | KIRIT RADIA

Posted on 01/03/2011 5:49:42 PM PST by americanophile

The U.S. Navy will temporarily relieve Capt. Owen Honors of his post pending investigation of the series of explicit videos he is said to have produced when he was second in command of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise, sources tell ABC News.

Capt. Honors is under investigation for a series of raunchy videos in which he appeared from 2006 to 2007. The videos featured a series of skits that aimed to provide some humor during the long deployment at sea. At the time the videos were produced, the Enterprise was operating in support of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

But the skits were clearly offensive to many people. A leaked version of one video, first reported by the Virginian-Pilot newspaper on Saturday, contained derogatory references to homosexuals and was filled with profanity. At one point in the video, Honors introduces a scene in which two female sailors pretend to wash each other in the shower by saying that "chicks in the shower" were his "favorite topic."

It’s a shame.
If it was a video making fun of straight white guys the left would put it up for an award.

Too bad. He should have realized that you have to be careful what you put on the record—written or video.

What part of “officer and a gentleman” did he miss? I’m shocked that an O-6 would do this.

Hey, let him serve openly in the new military. Don’t ask him why and don’t tell him that he was wrong.

This happened about 4 years ago. I haven't seen the videos but an alarm always goes off in my head when something like this surfaces years after the fact.
My question is obvious, why now?

The pussification of the US Navy military is underway.

Were you in the Military, specifically the Navy? Doesn't sound like it.

I guess I know a couple Admirals that would have never made rank beyond Commander in today Navy.

Why now indeed, and why him instead of the guy who was Captain then?

What exactly shocked you? I watched the whole video and was not shocked at all. I saw nothing except humor. Of course, spending a total of 2 1/2 years underwater in a submarine going 4 knots to nowhere during the cold war probably 'taints' somewhat my perspective... The new homosexual sex navy will probably be so much better -so much more MORAL and unshocking...

I do believe that the word “pussification” has been deemed harassment by a the Honorable POS Mr. Holder.

Fact is that men can no longer be men, God forbid you discuss a liberty call in the Philippines or tell a dirty joke. The only group you can safely joke about are white, Christian males.

Hey GABBY, this CO is a hero to me and every sailor on board his ship. If the military can’t ask a person’s sexuality, they can’t tell me not to like it. GAB, I can pretty much guess you didn’t serve you country in a forward area. Everyone has their right to free speech, why do you think theses heroes are serving their country?????
