A publication calling itself the "Military Times" has published an exposé titled "Maybe today’s Navy is just not very good at driving ships" (archived). Unlike mainstream Fake News coverage of recent events, this exposé's narrative is concordant with known facts about the world including:
- Secretarial skills and consistently passing "inspection" are more valued in the Incan US Department of Defense than competence, job skills, or actual human functional abilities
- Naval Officers including "Surface Warfare Officers" were frequently taken out of maritime service in order to provide tours of administrative and secretarial support to land forces in the ongoing Union wars of aggression against Iraq and Afghanistan. Selections for these tours was looked upon favourably in promotion boards because "interdisciplinary" is a buzzword.
- The US Navy eliminated their 6 month basic Surface Warfare Officer course for newly commissioned officers in 2003. It was replaced by a 21 disk course on CD-ROM.
Fourteen years after the US Navy replaced their basic Surface Warfare Course with a CD-ROM boxed set, the longest experiment in computer disk based instructional courses is reaching its apex as graduates of the CD-ROM course are beginning to assume command positions. Pence in our time.
