This is my area of Expertise...
I spent almost 20 years on nuclear subs and I was part of the commissioning crew on the USS Dallas SSN 700.
And your article stated:
It was only confirmed after it left to protect the security of our ships.
A Russian nuclear-powered attack submarine armed with long-range cruise missiles operated undetected in the Gulf of Mexico for several weeks and its travel in strategic U.S. waters was only confirmed after it left the region
, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.
It is only the second time since 2009 that a Russian attack submarine has patrolled so close to U.S. shores.
The stealth underwater incursion in the Gulf took place at the same time Russian strategic bombers made incursions into restricted U.S. airspace near Alaska and California in June and July, and highlights a growing military assertiveness by Moscow.
There is no doubt in my mind we knew it was there from start to finish.
And heres to you seank6:
