Re: Another Navy ship collision. 10 "missing"

Is there a bit of a knee-jerk reaction to slam-dunk the Navy here? All the electronics in the world won't help you if (for example) someone turns to port in front of you.

This is very preliminary, but looks like outbound (McCain) and inbound (Alnic), reciprocal courses. More than that I don't know, but let's say it went wrong and McCain went hard starboard but still got drilled. They may have done everything right, who knows? We don't. Not yet, anyway.

Just sayin'. Ease up on joking about "naval intelligence" 'til we know more.

And prayers for the missing and families.
