A U.S. military official says that one Russian Tupolev 95 buzzed the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz twice, at a low altitude of about 2,000 feet, while another bomber circled about 50 nautical miles out. The official was speaking on condition of anonymity because the reports on the flights were classified as secret.

Dammit!! It's out there. That's why we have the CID's and IA's. You gotta be careful out there. You never know who you are working with. You really have to be careful with what you do. Who know's if this guy had some leverage being used against him. Well regardless, he got himself into it, willing or unwilling, Burn em!! Fucking Traitor.


Wainstein said the Chinese government is among the most aggressive of foreign powers seeking access to U.S. military and economic secrets.

As I recall, Russian aircraft buzzed the Kitty Hawk in the Sea of Japan back around 2000. That time, it came as a total surprise, and no carrier aircraft even intercepted them.

A lot of people forget, or just don't know, that Putin was head of the KGB before he ruled Russia. Definitely NOT a nice guy.

That's because you can't. International airspace and all that.

No, you can. At a minimum the Navy would escort the bombers through the battle group but I've read accounts of Tomcats in the 80's escorting Bears and Backfires away from the battle group.

Yes but they can't actually do anything about it. If the Russians wanted to they could fly right over the top (again).

Way to go, asshole. Nice to know all those non-disclosure agreements you signed don't mean shit to you. Thanks for protecting all our information and proving yourself worthy of our Nation's trust.:rolleyes:
