Navy com­man­ders not to blame

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - SEYMOUR KLEIMAN Bal­ti­more

The real cul­prit of the U.S. Navy’s lack of readi­ness isn’t in the dock (“USS Fitzger­ald com­man­der says Navy staged pub­lic smear cam­paign in deadly col­li­sion,” May 22). It is the pres­i­dency of Barack Obama. It was the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion’s penny-pinch­ing de­fense bud­gets that created the Navy’s un­pre­pared­ness.

Mr. Obama, Se­nate Ma­jor­ity Leader Harry Reid and House Mi­nor­ity Leader Nancy Pelosi, not the un­for­tu­nate com­man­ders who had to per­form their as­signed mis­sions un­der duress, are re­ally the ones who should be court-mar­tialed.
