Quote:This photograph of ships lined up at the piers of the Norfolk Naval Base was widely circulated in March 2013 with accompanying claims that it showed five U.S. aircraft carriers simultaneously docked in the same place for the first time since World War II. Although the photograph is genuine, and five carriers were indeed docked at Norfolk at the same time, most of the claims in the accompanying text are exaggerated or untrue: the ships were not all "first line" carriers, nor were they "pulled out from the Middle East" and "ordered into harbor for routine inspections," and the situation was not the first occurrence of its type since World War II, nor was it a "breach of long-standing military protocol."

I'd already read snopes. It full of chit.
They try to make all sorts of excuses, but the damn ships were there - 5 in a row!!
So when snopes says it's mostly false, snopes is mostly false.
Those ships cost more than a billion dollars to build $2.7 billion if I remember correctly.
Under NO circumstances should those ships be lined up like that. Yeah, Clinton did the same thing. So twice now these bastards have put our nation at risk.
The excuse used when Clinton did it is that there were no threats. Really?? They've never heard of a dirty bomb? One dirty bomb would make all the ships radioactive.
