US Navy RIP-2

"When the U.S. Navy deploys a battle fleet on exercises, it takes the security of its aircraft carriers very seriously indeed. ... That is the theory. Or, rather, was the theory. ... American miltary chiefs have been left dumbfounded by an undetected Chinese submarine popping up at the heart of a recent Pacific exercise and close to the vast U.S.S. Kitty Hawk--a 1,000 ft supercarrier with 4,500 personnel on board. ... The lone Chinese vessel slipped past at least a dozen other American warships which were supposed to protect the carrier from hostile aircraft or submarines", http://www.dailymail.co.uk/, 13 November.

What can I say? Admirals, wake up.
