Default Loose lips sink ships

This has been going on for awhile apparently,the officers aboard the command ship for the 7th Fleet provided classified fleet movements in exchange for bribes and sex.

Misiewicz and Francis moved Navy vessels like chess pieces, diverting aircraft carriers, destroyers and other ships to Asian ports with lax oversight where Francis could inflate costs, the criminal complaint alleges.

This article just brushes on what really happened,I don't think think they should be charged with excepting bribes,they sold out every single sailor and marine in the 7th fleet,that is treason to me.

Other links explain more in detail the extent and involvement.

A few bad apples or an office corps that is systemically flawed ?

There was a similar scheme going on here in San Diego. The Navy has a repair depot on North Island for the aircraft.

Here's one for you how about a certain navy contract worth about 250 million that has a civilian contractor running and being funded via time and material. Thats like putting the fox in the hen house.
The Navy is not a well run organization .

If all true, I hope Trump does some kind of intervention
