Four Navy officers get letters of censure over lewd video

The secretary of the Navy has issued letters of censure to Capt. Owen Honors and three other officers involved in the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise lewd video scandal, Navy spokesman Capt. Danny Hernandez said.

The letters effectively end the officers careers, as they will prevent promotion. The letters cannot be appealed.

Honors created the videos and was second-in-command on the Enterprise at the time. Others receiving censure were his successor, Capt. John Dixon, and former Enterprise commanders Rear Adm. Larry Rice and Rear Adm. Ron Horton.

    Question @Marge
    Um nice try but...If I'm not mistaken this scandal & the videos started LONG before President Obama was in office. This has been an ongoing thing that recently came to light and the entire Nation's attention via the internet posting of some of them. So how's it Obama's fault these asses started making the videos on taxpayer time since the Bush Administration? Rocket Surgeon?

    This is just an observation, so please don't jump down my throat, but...

    Is there no DVD player on board? Can't the Navy provide them with some they have to resort to making their own for entertainment?

    I'll admit, I know nothing about the Navy at all, but it just seems to me that nothing good *ever* comes about when there is a video camera always gets seen by people it wasn't intended for. Always.
