Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly justified his firing last week of the USS Theodore Roosevelt’s skipper in a speech broadcast Monday over the ship’s public address system, calling Capt. Brett Crozier “stupid” if he thought a letter calling for his crew to be evacuated because of coronavirus concerns wasn’t going to leak. https://www.stripes.com/news/in-speech-to-uss-roosevelt-crew-modly-calls-fired-captain-either-stupid-or-knowingly-negligent-1.625061
