    In an unusual move, the Navy has replaced an admiral commanding an aircraft carrier strike group while it is deployed to the Middle East. The replacement was prompted by an Inspector General’s investigation of allegations of inappropriate leadership judgment.

    Rear Adm. Charles M. Gaouette, the commander of the USS John C. Stennis strike group, is being returned to the United States for temporary reassignment.

    In a statement the Navy said it had approved a request made by Vice Adm. John W. Miller, the Commander of U.S. Naval Forces Central Command, to temporarily reassign Gaouette “pending the results of an investigation by the Navy Inspector General.”

    The statement said Gaoutte would return to the carrier’s home port of Bremerton, Washington.

    A Navy official familiar with the circumstances of the investigation said it involved allegations of “inappropriate leadership judgment” and stressed it was not related to personal conduct.

    The Stennis group arrived in the Fifth Fleet’s area of operations on Oct. 17 to replace the USS Enterprise, which was on the final deployment of its 50 years of service. The allegations are recent and were made within the last couple of weeks.

    The Stennis returned to Bremerton in March from a seven-month deployment to the Middle East. In July the Pentagon ordered the carrier to deploy in August — four months ahead of schedule — so a two-carrier presence could be maintained in the Middle East after the Enterprise finished its deployment. The other carrier strike group currently operating in the Fifth Fleet is the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower.

    Gaouette’s Chief of Staff, Capt. William C. Minter, will lead the strike group until Rear Adm. Troy M. Shoemaker arrives to take command “until the matter is resolved.”

    Could there be a revolt against the incompetence of the CIC? The military are dedicated to honor and to protect our country. I'm sure the stuff that's going on now is churning their stomachs. It's horrendous to make a man (or woman) of honor do something that is dishonorable.

    There are just too many of these amazing coincidences going on lately.

    We may have someone else that wanted to help the ambassador.

    Possibly. This is, however, speculation. The timing supports that speculation, and, by replacing him, but keeping him on active duty, the administration effectively gags the Admiral until after the election. Still, it's thin.

    It is all thin but there are to dammed many unusual coincidences right now and this government has proved itself time and time again to be dishonest and up to many things that are far from what our founders intended and our constitution allows.
    I don't believe in coincidences, everything come to pass for a purpose for someone.

    The real problem with the dishonesty of the administration is that even when they are acting properly, they engender suspicion. They become carriers for paranoia.

    Very true, it is a precarious position to be in when in a dangerous world, you cannot trust your own government to have the best interest of it's citizens at heart.

    It would make sense. Gen. Ham would reach out to assets in his AO that could quickly get to the trouble spot. And IMO the Admiral had to be getting the same flash traffic messages about Benghazi.

    Just too many coincidences here.

    5th Fleet belongs to CENTCOM though. That makes the likely hood of a cover up that much smaller, since you'd have everyone at two major commands being kept silent about this.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
