    Perfectly normal. We do the same to them, air, surface and submarine. They know it, we know it, no one blinks. Not new news; it's been going on since the 50s. Read "Blind Man's Bluff" by Susan Sonntag for a run down of some things that didn't go quite according to plan here and there. The technology has changed, and to an extent so have some of the tricks of the trade, but the trade continues. (Yes, full power active sonar hurts your ears.)

    Back to the bad old days."duck and cover"...this stuff was real common in the 60's,70's,80's, I guess it never really stopped attack subs try to find and track boomers..its not just a job,its an adventure.

    Looks like a Captain's mast is on the horizon, not to mention jail time IF the reporter is telling the truth.
