SAN DIEGO, California, January 13, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – The commanding officer of the U.S. Pacific Fleet's Carrier Strike Group training command has been fired for watching porn on a military computer.

A routine inspection discovered that a U.S. rear admiral had looked at pornography while on his government computer, which is a violation of Navy regulations.

The Navy Times reported that a source explained, “They have enough information to say it wasn't just a mistake. It was extensive enough that they knew it was not just an error.”

The rear admiral was a career surface warfare officer and was made head of a Carrier Strike Group in June. His extensive service to his country included directing maritime operations in support of Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.

Haley Halverson of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation told LifeSiteNews that her organization “encourages the consistent and comprehensive enforcement of military policies against pornography consumption in the workplace.”

Ms. Halverson explained why the viewing of pornography at work – especially in the military – is a serious issue. “The military must recognize that pornography consumption among its members causes serious harm, whether the material is consumed while on duty or on personal time. The attitudes and behaviors it fuels do not respect workplace boundaries.”

“It is vitally important that the military also provide prevention and recovery programs for personnel struggling with porn addiction,” Ms. Halverson said. “Extension of policy enforcement, as well as provision of recovery programs to offshore military bases, is also essential.”
