Capt. Holly Graf, commander of the USS Cowpens, a guided missile cruiser, was relieved of duty Jan. 13 after an investigation found she cursed so much at her 400-member crew that the sailors -- no strangers to four-letter words -- were intimidated.

She was also accused of engaging the Cowpens in a "drag race" with a destroyer.
captpackrat: (Bush Miserable Failure)
It was 5 years ago today that Bush proudly declared "Mission Accomplished in Iraq". 

Since then, over 4000 American soldiers have been killed and nearly 30,000 wounded (and this doesn't account for the psychological effects that may plague combat veterans for decades).  At least 90,000 Iraqi civilians have lost their lives (some sources estimate as many as one million Iraqi deaths); the number of Iraqi wounded or left homeless is unknown but likely well into the millions.  The current estimates are that the war in Iraq will cost at least three trillion dollars; that's about $10,000 out of the pocket of every single American.

Good job, Commander-In-Chief George W. Bush!
