Linguist says US intelligence spied on Blair

http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/f67344a4-ba81-11dd-aecd-0000779fd18c.html So... all these former NSA and military linguists talking about the agency forced me to ask myself... is the NDA I signed even worth the paper it's written on? I sure as hell hope this stuff isn't covered under the whistleblower la...

Great point. This is a baby step in the right direction, but the Navy has bigger issues with keeping SWOs and nuclear qualified Submariners in the service. The Navy throws TONS of money at the nukes, and yet they get out in droves. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that it's not all about the m...

I guess it all boils down to timing and how critical your job is. On a submarine I highly doubt the skipper would be able to lose one of his OODs for the birth of a child while the boat was on deployment. Big decks and/or surface combatants might be a different story.

The 10 days of leave likely wouldn't be enough for the boat to bsp or bump the pier just to let you off. I would assume deployments would trump taking the leave immediately.

I haven't read the new policy, but who wants to bet it's 10 consecutive days rather than 10 work days? I always like how that game is played.

Joe, let me come back to IWBC! Seriously though, that will give folks at commands a nice head start, but ultimately their grasp of the knowledge moreso than what is or isn't signed off will decide how they perform at the qualification board. Someone could blaze my PQS tomorrow, but that doesn't make...

It's not formal policy. There are billets for IW LDOs at the O-5 and O-6 levels that are currently empty because getting promoted past O-4 for LDOs is decidedly more difficult than for a 1610. That is one of the biggest reasons our upper leadership have been encouraging LDOs to convert to 1610 if th...

I would hate for this site to become a political argument area. I enjoy it as a place to exchange IW info - not to hear right or left bashing. Unless I missed something this site had been no less than extremely tolerant and mellow in it's political discussions. No bashing to be had here... I wouldn...

No one is phasing out LDOs, and if you look at the FY09 IW accession numbers posted here by the IW CM earlier this year the number of OCS grads is actually being significantly reduced.
