Sorry if this has been posted, I found nothing in a search (of course lol). This nuke powered sub went undetected in the Gulf for weeks!!! Thats pretty scary to think about. While we have all of our Navy over in the Straight, and the middle east, we may just be ripe for the picking?

The submarine patrol also exposed what U.S. officials said were deficiencies in U.S. anti-submarine warfare capabilities—forces that are facing cuts under the Obama administration’s plan to reduce defense spending by $487 billion over the next 10 years. The Navy is in charge of detecting submarines, especially those that sail near U.S. nuclear missile submarines, and uses undersea sensors and satellites to locate and track them. The fact that the Akula was not detected in the Gulf is cause for concern, U.S. officials said. The officials who are familiar with reports of the submarine patrol in the Gulf of Mexico said the vessel was a nuclear-powered Akula-class attack submarine, one of Russia’s quietest submarines. A Navy spokeswoman declined to comment.

With our ever growing cuts in the Naval forces, I am very concerned this wont end well. Oh well, one world government, here we come

What do you think ATS? Is this cause for concern?
