Did you know that the worlds sea bed is bugged with more listening devices than your internet connection and they can hear a fish fart at ten miles?
Make no mistake no sub can creep up like that but a red could sneak up and hide under your bed.
Chances are it's american spying on it's own people again and remember Bush changed the law so that they don't even have to ask the people anymore to do this type of thing.
More like some sensible US Navy guys, tired of the bullsht from their Commander and Chief decided to get in nice and close and take a look at the BOP themselves....

Now that I have stopped laughing at this guy for trying to chase a periscope, let me tell you what it probably is. Every so often the US Navy puts a sub in waters off the coast and tells it's Anti-Submarine Aircraft approximately where it is. Then those aircraft go out and try to find the sub. It is called "Sub Services". It gives the ASW people training in locating subs and gives the sub people training in how to avoid ASW aircraft. I have witnessed both sides of this. Several times I was in the aircraft and once I was on the sub.
Somewhere there is an attack sub crew who was laughing their asses off over this. Before the USS Greenville surfaced under that Japanese ship a few years ago, the sub would have probably played around with this guy.
In 1986 I was fishing in a small boat about 10 miles off of Jacksonville, when something took off with my lure. I was using 160 lb. fishing line and it actually made my boat move before the line broke. When I got back to my squadron, I checked the posts in the ready room and found that there was "Sub Services" in the area that I was fishing in. A while later I rode on a sub for a week. When we surfaced off Georgia, before going into port, I noticed some of the crew cutting fishing line. I asked where it came from and was told that they often snag lines and lures when approaching port.

A) Cuba's military spying on us.
B) Oil Leak a cover up for us to do covert ops in the gulf. In same vein could be used as good fortune spy trip for cuba. (he mean Atlantis, not cuba)
C) Could be the Russians, the Chinese, and many other nations. They have gotten very close to our shores before.
D) Could have been a science vessel for studying this Oil Leak.
E) Could be USO's at war with the U.S. and they needed a cover up.
F) All of the above.
