USS Forestal sold for one penny
« on: October 23, 2013, 08:20:49 pm »
The USS Forrestal is heading to the scrapyard.

The USS Forrestal, the Navy’s first “supercarrier,” is being sold for 1 cent to All Star Metals. The shipbreaker will have the supercarier towed to Brownsville, Texas where it will be scrapped over the next few years.
All Star Metals said that it was finalizing its plan to get the USS Forrestal to the scrapyard. The company said that the ship is expected to leave the Navy’s inactive ship facility in Philadelphia by the end of the year.
NPR reports that the supercarrier was first launched in 1954. The ship was in service for nearly 40 years until it was decommissioned in 1993.
Stars And Stripes reports that the Navy tried to get the Forrestal into a museum but the government did not receive any suitable applications. I wonder waht LIL Johny thinks of this deal.

I knew a guy who was on the crash crew when this disater took place.. Lil Johny McCain was a pilot who woud blowback his turbines showing off, my friend  he never did confirm exactly JM was the cause, but he did turn red, his veins would stick out when he mention Lil Johny M.
  His task as crash crew was tearing off the charred body's of his fellow mates from the bulkheads of the vessell.
He did slip up and said a bid dog show off was the cause, but remained reluctant, blocked, to give his name, I continue to wonder why he foamed at the mouth rather than name the guy, would sem to become rigid and , turn away and become reclusive.
  A penny for your thoughts, afterall the Forrrestal was sold for a pennny.......A real cheapy bargain, or a common practice..

134 people dead, and the story that John McCain caused it has the ring of truth to it. Like so many other stories we will never know the truth of it, but my gut tells me McCain was the cause. A childish mistake from a young man. If that is the case he could have faced it like a man but instead we got a coverup. Looking at him now it's no wonder what type of person he turned out to be. Sad for all concerned.

And then there is the time he spent in the Hanoi Hilton. At least two stories there too. One that a brave American tortured for years bravely comes home after the war. The other a son of an admiral who capitulates to save himself any discomfort. Who is despised by those who served their time in cages while McCain was treated like a guest.

 When they sell our first 'Super Carrier' for $0.01---this is an OPEN subliminal showing America that they think We are worthless; and NOT a Super Power anymore----more New World Order Mind Games---

The USS Forrestal should have been restored & put in a Dockyard Memorial; with the money wasted on O'Web-Glich ;D

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1967_USS_Forrestal_fire
The 1967 USS Forrestal fire was a devastating fire and series of chain-reaction explosions on 29 July 1967 that killed 134 sailors and injured 161 on the aircraft carrier USS Forrestal (CVA-59), after an electrical anomaly discharged a Zuni rocket on the flight deck. Forrestal was engaged in combat operations in the Gulf of Tonkin during the Vietnam War at the time, and the damage exceeded US$72 million (equivalent to $504 million today) not including damage to aircraft.[2][3] Future United States Senator John McCain was among the survivors.
...

At about 10:50 (local time) on 29 July, while preparations for the second strike of the day were being made, an unguided 5.0 in (127.0 mm) Mk-32 "Zuni" rocket, one of four contained in a LAU-10 underwing rocket pod mounted on an F-4B Phantom II, was accidentally fired due to an electrical power surge during the switch from external power to internal power. The surge originated from the fact that high winds had blown free the safety pin, which would have prevented the fail surge, as well as a decision to plug in the "pigtail" system early to increase the number of takeoffs from the carrier (see below).

The rocket flew across the flight deck, striking a wing-mounted external fuel tank on an A-4E Skyhawk awaiting launch,[1] aircraft No. 405, piloted by Lieutenant Commander Fred D. White.[2][10] The Zuni Rocket's warhead safety mechanism prevented it from detonating, but the impact tore the tank off the wing and ignited the resulting spray of escaping JP-5 fuel, causing an instantaneous conflagration. Within seconds, other external fuel tanks on White's aircraft overheated and ruptured, releasing more jet fuel to feed the flames, which began spreading along the flight deck.

The impact of the Zuni had also dislodged two of the 1000-lb AN-M65 bombs, which fell to the deck and lay in the pool of burning fuel between White and McCain's aircraft. Damage Control Team #8 swung into action immediately, and Chief Gerald Farrier, recognizing the risk and without benefit of protective clothing, immediately smothered the bombs with a PKP fire extinguisher in an effort to knock down the fuel fire long enough to allow the pilots to escape. The pilots, still strapped into their aircraft, were immediately aware that a disaster was unfolding, but only some were able to escape in time. Lieutenant Commander John McCain, pilot of A-4 Skyhawk side No. 416 next to White's was among the first to notice the flames and escaped by scrambling down the nose of his A-4 and jumping off the refueling probe shortly before the explosions began.

Damage Control Team #8 had been assured of a 10 minute window in which to extinguish the fire and prevent the bombs from detonating, but the Composition B bombs proved to be just as unstable as the ordnance crews had initially feared; after only slightly more than 1 minute, despite Chief Farrier's constant efforts to cool the bombs, the casing of one suddenly split open and began to glow cherry red. The chief, recognizing a lethal cook-off was imminent, shouted for his team to withdraw, but the bomb detonated seconds later – a mere one minute and 36 seconds after the start of the fire.[11]

The detonation destroyed White and McCain's aircraft (along with their remaining fuel and armament), blew a crater in the armored flight deck, and sprayed the deck and crew with bomb fragments and burning fuel. Damage Control Team #8 took the brunt of the initial blast; Chief Farrier and all his men except three were killed instantly, with the survivors being critically injured. Lieutenant Commander White had managed to escape his burning aircraft but was unable to get far enough away in time; he was killed along with the firefighters in the first bomb explosion. In the tightly packed formation on the deck, the two nearest A-4s to White and McCain's (both fully fueled and bomb-laden) were heavily damaged and began to burn, causing the fire to spread and more bombs to quickly cook off.

The first display of bonding occurred when Col. Bui Tin, a former senior colonel in the North Vietnamese Army who had actually interrogated McCain and other U.S. prisoners, testified before the Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs.
During a break in the hearing, McCain moved to where Col. Bui Tin was seated. Instead of grabbing Bui Tin by the neck and demanding his arrest for war crimes against U.S. POWs, McCain reached out and warmly hugged his former interrogator as if he were a long lost brother. Never mind that at least 55 American POW were murdered by interrogators and guards while in North Vietnamese prisoner of war camps.

John McCain Losing His Cool

Find Out the Truth About John McCain http://www.powmusicinc.com.

Mean spirited McCain is known for throwing temper tantrums, flying off the handle, blowing his top,seething with anger, accusing others of lying, and of mistreating POW/MIA family members. So how will he treat U.S.? POW/MIA families report...You decide

McCain and the POW Cover-Up
The “war hero” candidate buried information about POWs left behind in Vietnam.

By Sydney Schanberg • July 1, 2010
...

The sum of the secrets McCain has sought to hide is not small. There exists a telling mass of official documents, radio intercepts, witness depositions, satellite photos of rescue symbols that pilots were trained to use, electronic messages from the ground containing the individual code numbers given to airmen, a rescue mission by a special forces unit that was aborted twice by Washington—and even sworn testimony by two Defense secretaries that “men were left behind.” This imposing body of evidence suggests that a large number—the documents indicate probably hundreds—of the U.S. prisoners held by Vietnam were not returned when the peace treaty was signed in January 1973 and Hanoi released 591 men, among them Navy combat pilot John S. McCain.

Mass of Evidence

The Pentagon had been withholding significant information from POW families for years. What’s more, the Pentagon’s POW/MIA operation had been publicly shamed by internal whistleblowers and POW families for holding back documents as part of a policy of “debunking” POW intelligence even when the information was obviously credible.

The pressure from the families and Vietnam veterans finally forced the creation, in late 1991, of a Senate Select Committee on POW/MIA Affairs. The chairman was John Kerry. McCain, as a former POW, was its most pivotal member. In the end, the committee became part of the debunking machine.

One of the sharpest critics of the Pentagon’s performance was an insider, Air Force Lt. Gen. Eugene Tighe, who headed the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) during the 1970s. He openly challenged the Pentagon’s position that no live prisoners existed, saying that the evidence proved otherwise. McCain was a bitter opponent of Tighe, who was eventually pushed into retirement.

Included in the evidence that McCain and his government allies suppressed or sought to discredit is a transcript of a senior North Vietnamese general’s briefing of the Hanoi politburo, discovered in Soviet archives by an American scholar in 1993. The briefing took place only four months before the 1973 peace accords. The general, Tran Van Quang, told the politburo members that Hanoi was holding 1,205 American prisoners but would keep many of them at war’s end as leverage to ensure getting war reparations from Washington.

Former POW Fights Public Access to POW/MIA Files

...
Knowledgeable observers note that it’s quite possible that Nixon, leading the country’s withdrawal, accepted the peace treaty of Jan. 27, 1973, while telling himself that somehow he would negotiate the release of the remaining POWs later. But when Congress refused to provide the $3 billion to $4 billion in proposed national development reparations that National Security Adviser Henry Kissinger had dangled as a carrot to Hanoi , the prospects for the abandoned men began to unravel.

 Observers also point out that over the years that followed, Washington continued to reject paying what it branded as ransom money and so, across six presidencies, including the present one, the issue of POWs who may have been left behind remained unacknowledged by the White House and the Pentagon. Hanoi refused to correct the impression that all the prisoners had been returned, and Washington, for its part, refused to admit that it had known about abandoned POWs from the beginning.

SS Libert, scrapped....1970, $101,000 , just to mention.

  USS Liberty - Liberty (AGTR-5)
www.libertyagtr5div.org/Liberty.htm‎
USS Liberty was sold for scrapping in December 1970. The ship was later dismantled and sold for scrap for approximately $101,000. At the time of the attack she .( was attacked by IZ.)

This vessell has a long story behind it as well,  LBJ, Admiral McCain among others covered up this abomination as well.
They don't care about the peons, they considered us to be the  psuedo pats, moronic flag wigglers, brainless dipshiites at their mercy.

Before they send the forest fire to the inside contractor the Navy needs to let the 'Ghost Hunters' have a crack at it.

The US taxpayers probably paid billions for that carrier over its lifetime...and the government sells it for $.01.

What do they care, not their money...

I bet 90% (at least)  of the scrap will be going to China, too.

Well China did build some Sky Scrapers with the steel from the Twin Towers; and least we forget, about all the steel, and other metals we sent to Japan, before WWII!

 why call it Steel any more? the more appropriate term would be : 'STEAL: it from us!'
