The Navy unjustly punished 256 Black sailors in 1944 after a deadly California port explosion. Now they are exonerated

The Navy unjustly punished 256 Black sailors in 1944 after a deadly ...
Quick Glance: Navy Clears Black Sailors in Port Chicago Disaster 80 Years Later
  • Eighty years after explosions tore through the Port Chicago naval facility in California, claiming 320 lives, the Navy announced the complete exoneration of African American sailors charged with mutiny in 1944 for refusing to work in dangerous conditions.

  • The cause of the explosions, which injured over 400 people and decimated Port Chicago, remains unknown. The exoneration honors the courage displayed by the African American sailors during the tragic incident.

  • The new investigation conducted under Navy Secretary Del Toro revealed legal errors in the trial of the sailors and the lack of proper counsel. The exoneration clears the names of the sailors and acknowledges their bravery in the face of immense danger.

  • Del Toro's decision to set aside the court-martial results corrects a historic injustice and recognizes the unwavering courage of the Port Chicago sailors. The legal review found that the Black sailors were not given adequate legal representation during the 1944 trial.

Quick Glance: End of US Military Aid Mission for Gaza Pier
  • After facing challenges with weather, technology, and security, the US military mission to provide a floating pier for Gaza Strip aid delivery has come to a close.

  • To ensure the supply from Cyprus, transport is now arranged through US vessels to the Israeli port of Ashdod and then by trucks to northern Gaza via an Israeli-controlled border crossing.

  • The total amount of aid delivered through the pier is seen by the UN and other humanitarian organizations as a tiny fraction of what the 2.2 million Palestinians in Gaza require.

  • US President Biden expressed disappointment with the pier mission and announced its discontinuation due to security and weather issues, despite its initial plan to continue until August or September.

Quick Glance: Sailor Attempts Access to Biden's Medical Records, Navy Confirms
  • A junior Navy sailor unsuccessfully attempted to access President Biden’s medical records in February via a military medical database, as confirmed by the Pentagon’s top spokesperson on Tuesday.

  • An investigation into the incident revealed that the accessed records were not the president's electronic records and the sailor could not have used the system to access them, as Biden's medical record is restricted.

  • Biden underwent his annual physical examination on February 28 at Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., and was later deemed 'fit for duty.'

  • The assessment has been questioned following Biden's poor debate performance, with some Democrats arguing about his mental acuity to serve as commander in chief for another term.
