This was early June 2002 and it was more than 24 miles off the coast. SUPPOSEDLY (I never personally saw them) there was a notice out that the Navy was holding exercises.
I just wonder how they can ORDER you out of International Waters.
I can see wanting you to stay away from their ships, but in this case I remember hearing one of the crew saying they didn't even see any ships/planes around other than the one telling them to get out.
Of course when have legal issues kept the Gov't from doing what it wants?
