Editor’s Note: The News Roundup is now available in Podcast form in the iTunes store… You can hear me bitch about a few of the weekly events that I’ve only previously typed out. Just go to iTunes, and search for “News Roundup.” Look for the Pararescue poster. Sometimes it takes a few hours to get posted, so if the latest week’s isn’t on iTunes yet, you can also access it here on Soundcloud. Any tips/suggestions/shit-talking is authorized. (I’m still learning how to do it, and trying, unsuccessfully, to not swear TOO much.) -BK

The United States Navy is a disaster:

The Navy‘s top officer said Thursday the performance of 10 of his sailors leading up to and following their capture by Iranian forces in January did not meet the high standards expected of them, as he announced the long-awaited findings of a Navy investigation.

“Those sailors clearly know our actions on that day in January, and this incident did not live up to our expectations of our Navy,” Admiral John Richardson told reporters.
