Posted February 5, 2014 at 7:32am

CNN reports that “senior Navy enlistees seeking credentials to train others on using nuclear reactors that power carriers and subs are under investigation for cheating on an exam that may have involved classified information, top military officials said Tuesday.”  

“The troubling disclosure comes just weeks after the Air Force alleged widespread cheating on a proficiency test by officers with oversight responsibilities for nuclear missiles. Both involved written exams.  

“‘To say that I’m disappointed would be an understatement,’ Adm. Jonathan Greenert, the chief of naval operations, said at a news conference.
Staff at the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program in Charleston, South Carolina, allegedly shared information about the test on reactor operations among themselves, officials said of their findings so far.”
