Earlier in the year there was an outpouring of support for Capt. Gary McWherter, former commander of the Navy’s elite aerobatic team, when he was relieved of his duties as an executive officer at Navy Base Coronado. Many thought he was the "target" of Navy brass. Today, opinions are sure to change.

The Navy's previous vague statement indicated “unspecified reasons” for McWherter’s dismissal in April.

Yesterday, the ongoing investigation into Capt. McWherter's behavior reached explosive proportions when CNN released new details about the toxic and pornographic atmosphere that was created and encouraged under the command of the Navy officer.

While Americans looked up to the prestigious pilots who performed so flawlessly in the air, their on-ground performances were riddled with images of giant penises, naked women, and profanity. In fact, a penis image painted atop the Blue Angels' hangar was so large it was visible via space satellite. It has since been removed.

The investigation also revealed McWherter's hostile culture included demeaning behavior towards women and homosexuals. Male and female crew chiefs flew with “motivational” pornography in the cockpits often fearing to protest due to the harassment-factor.
