Navy replaces admiral leading Mideast strike group

WASHINGTON The U.S. Navy said Saturday it is replacing the admiral in command of an aircraft carrier strike group in the Middle East, pending the outcome of an internal investigation into undisclosed allegations of inappropriate judgment.

Rear Adm. Charles M. Gaouette is being sent back to the USS John C. Stennis' home port at Bremerton, Washington stae, in what the Navy called a temporary reassignment. The Navy said he is not formally relieved of his command of the Stennis strike group but will be replaced by Rear Adm. Troy M. Shoemaker, who will assume command until the investigation is completed.

It is highly unusual for the Navy to replace a carrier strike group commander during its deployment.

Looks like obama is taking down our military leaders who maybe don't go along with his crap... one Rear Adm and one General, all since Libya movie thingy.

Could this just be another attempt by the Obama cabal to whip up a semblance of 'do something' to draw attention away from the true causes of the failures in Benghazi?
