Key word: ‘Preventable’ That about says it all folks.
‘Preventable’ when used with the CO means it’s something the CO had control over. As the CO can’t control the System (operation tempo, deployment schedule, budget, OPSEC and so on) the System can’t be at fault.
And as the System isn’t at fault then there’s no reason to fire anymore admirals. Blame assigned, problem solved, everyone is happy.
