The crew of a US submarine that ran aground in the Pacific Ocean in January did not adequately review navigation charts, a Navy report says.
The grounding could have been avoided if the crew had observed "prudent navigation practices", it says.
The vessel was on its way to Australia, when it ran aground and suffered severe external damage.
The submarine hit a mountain while submerged 157m (525 feet) below the ocean's surface.
The mountain did not appear on the chart being used for navigation.

That wasn't just ANY underwater mountain!
That was an underwater, anti freedom, pro islamic, fanatic, suicide bombing, TERRORIST mountain.
Bush is going to set that mountain free so it can join all the mountains (like mt rushmore) in the free world!
