Capt. Owen Honors of the USS Enterprise was not sanctioned until this week for making lewd videos and broadcasting them over the ship's televisions several years ago. Critics say such permissive behavior contributes to rising rates of sexual crime in the military.
USS Cole was attacked on Oct. 12, 2000 by Al Qaeda bombers who pulled alongside the USS Cole in a small boat and detonated explosives. The explosion killed 17 sailors and injured 39 while the ship was in Yemen.
