I guess the Russians didn't need a spy ship here during the elections,
They had a whole team of hackers right here on US soil then, remember.
Obama kicked them all out, so now they have to spy from offshore with spy ships.

There are spies from Russia in every military city in the United States as well as DC and major cities with industry. They have never left since the early Nineties.
NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Locally based ships recently completed a live-fire missile exercise off the coast of North Carolina, the U.S. Navy says. Navy officials say guided missile cruisers USS Vella Gulf (CG 72) and USS Leyte Gulf (CG 55) as well as the guided-missile destroyers USS James E. Williams (DDG 95) and USS Oscar Austin (DDG 79) completed the exercise on Feb. 4. The exercise was designed to give the ships’ crew a chance to test their weapons systems on simulated enemy targets in a live scenario. Navy officials say this was intended to “enhance crew proficiency” of the system.

The theme song for Pueblo (and for a bit, the NSA) was Lonely Bull (El Toro Solo) by Herb Alpert. Initially "Twinkle Star", there were some never-introduced lyrics that were discarded when Alpert decided it was more appropriate for the song of a bull facing death during a bull fight. It made it up to #6 in the US top 10. The NSA (and the USS Pueblo) adopted the song as being the image of the top dog in the pasture being alone facing implacable enemies.
I'm fairly sure a bit of the lead-in from the video (one of the first!) was used in Fail Safe. But it's hard to be sure.
