THE COVERUP OF THE U.S.S. IOWA. | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


THE COVERUP OF THE U.S.S. IOWA.

In response to accusations that the propellent was unstable, the Navy decided on a demonstration, and built a "drop test" rig. This was a simulated 16 inch gun barrel, with a ram at the base, that was dropped onto a concrete block to simulate over-ramming. The intention was to drop test the configuration again and again until it was evident that the propellent inside was safe from accidental detonation from over-ramming. Exactly the opposite was proven. On being dropped, the device detonated. The Navy then destroyed the remainder of the Iowa's propellent store and established new rules for the storing of propellent.

Despite this and other facts, the Navy's official report, issued on Thursday, September 7, 1989, concluded that the disaster was caused by a "wrongful intentional act ... most probably committed" by Clay Hartwig.

This is the key point. Even with the correct cause of the explosion in hand, the Navy willfully and falsely accused Clay Hartwig of a deliberate crime, and destroyed Kendall Truitt's life and career as well.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even now, Navy personnel are trying to counter the embarrassing incident with the USS John S. McCain with wild accusations of Chinese/Russian/Iranian/North Korean hackers interfering with the ship's GPS system. They are hoping that the general public forgets that ships underway at seas HAVE LOOKOUTS WATCHING FOR NEARBY SHIPS!

I have spent a good amount of time with a deck under my feet. I have even had the helm on multiple occasions of the replica of the HMS Bounty from the Mel Gibson version of Mutiny on the Bounty! I have even (technically) committed an act of mutiny myself by taking control of a sailing craft from its owner before the aforesaid idiot killed us all!

So, I speak from experience.

This was NOT a hacking attack.

This was NOT a GPS spoof.

This was a command crew of liberal politically-correct snowflakes who don't know what the fuck they are doing, wrecking expensive ship and killing people.
