Another Commanding Officer fired...

The Commanding Officer of USS DEXTROUS, a mine countermeasures ship, was fired for "numerous on the job failures" on 6 November 2013.

Captain Richard Hayes, Commander Task Force FIFTY TWO, fired Lieutenant Commander Nathan Wemett after an investigation identified "deficiencies in operational preparedness, situational awareness and tactical proficiency. 
“The responsibility of officers in command for their units, their sailors and their mission is absolute; the standards for their operational performance are very high. This relief was not due to personal misconduct.”

Lieutenant Commander Chavius Lewis, former CO of the USS DEVASTATOR, will temporary lead USS DEXTROUS until a permanent Commanding Officer is identified.

I would think you would have promptly posted the news that Vice Admiral Branch [Deputy Chief of Naval Operations for Information Dominance and Director of Naval Intelligence] and Rear Admiral Loveless [Director of Intelligence Operations N2/N6I], have both had their clearances suspended and been placed on leave.
