Navy Opens Investigation into Raunchy Videos

Washington (CNN) -- The Navy has opened an investigation into how a series of raunchy videos, full of sexual innuendo and anti-gay remarks, were produced and shown to the crew of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise while on deployment supporting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Navy spokesman Cmdr. Chris Sims said the videos, which were shown to the crew in 2006 and 2007, are "inappropriate."

Excerpts from the videos and descriptions of their content were first published Saturday by The Virginian-Pilot newspaper in Norfolk, Virginia.

The videos on the paper's website, reviewed by CNN, feature a man identified by two Navy officials and The Virginian-Pilot as Capt. Owen Honors, who at the time was the executive officer, or second-in-command, of the Enterprise. He recently took command of the carrier, winning one of the most coveted assignments in the U.S. Navy, which has only 11 aircraft carriers.

Honors is shown cursing along with other members of his staff in an attempt to demonstrate humor, according to videos. There are also anti-gay slurs, simulated sex acts, and what appear to be two female sailors in a shower together.

I've seen the video - - - talk about Yawnsville - - - if you think THAT is "Raunchy" and it offends you, then you don't belong in the military. That kind of Vanilla-flavored stuff doesn't offend me. THIS is what offends ME:



Tuesday Tart HERE.

  1. Sean,
    I am retired Navy and could not agree more with your assessment. The vids were well known throughout the fleet...so why the big deal now? Answer: the repeal of DADT. Just like the Tailhook BS back in the 1990's, now the brain dead media have a whipping boy and the pols have a rally point. All this does is further hasten the rot within the military caused by Political Correctness...
