‘Not one word of this meme is true’.

‘Well, okay, the names of the ships and the location are correct, but that’s all. Everything else is propaganda’.

‘ This picture was taken in December for one thing, not “the other day.”

‘It shows the USS Enterprise, the USS Eisenhower, the USS Harry Truman, the USS Bush and the USS Lincoln docked at Norfolk, VA’.

‘None of them are there for “routine maintenance.”

‘The Enterprise has been decommissioned and is being dismantled (sadly)’.

‘The Eisenhower headed off for its deployment in the Middle East last Thursday; it had been in port to get its landing deck resurfaced’.

‘The Harry Truman was going to deploy but has been held up due to a request by Navy officials’.

‘The Bush is not an aircraft carrier; it was in port for a study to see if it could be fitted as one and its deployment has been cancelled’.

‘Finally, the Lincoln is in port for a refueling mission, something that has now been cancelled due to looming budget cuts’.

‘The Navy also says that this is not the first time since Pearl Harbor that so many carriers were moored together.

‘Oh, and what is really going on with that picture’?

‘The active ships – aircraft carriers and amphibious assault ships – were there so that their crews could be home for Christmas:

‘Here is what the meme says about that picture up at the top of this story’:

“What is wrong with this picture”?

“The picture is of the five nuclear carriers. Just like Battleship Row, Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941″.

” This picture was taken the other day in Norfolk”.

“The Obama Administration ordered 5 nuclear carriers into harbor for “routine” (?) inspections”.

“Heads of the Navy were flabbergasted by the directive”.

“NORFOLK, VA. (February 8, 2013). The first time since WWII that five (*) aircraft carriers were docked together. USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), USS Enterprise (CVN 65), USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), and USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) are all in port at Naval Station Norfolk, Va., the world’s largest naval station”.

“Sources stated that this breached a long standing military protocol in the Navy meant to avoid massive enemy strike on major US forces. (U.S. Navy photo by Chief Mass Communication Specialist Ryan J. Courtade/Released)”

    Good thing you libarolls are on top of everything…Moron!

    • Yes! How dare the Defense Department publish those photos and the story in December explaining why all the ships are in harbor when the right wing nut jobs want to say it was just a couple of days ago and blame President Obama and his ‘manipulating’ the sequester.

      • just the fcts on said:

        Stop with the “right wing” bullshit. I can be considered right and I’ve challenged everyone who spouts this paranoia drivel. It’s no different than the left wing conspiracy nutters who insist bush and or the Israelis downed the WTC towers. You don’t really believe that, do you?

      • Rush, Beck, Daily Caller, Newsmax all ran this story about how Obama was ‘destroying’ our military.
        In searching for credible left wing outlets re: Twin Tower Trutherism – there are none.
        Again credible.
        Rush, Bech, Daily Caller, Newsmax are all considered ‘credible’ right wing sources.

        So no. I’m not going to stop it.

    • ….currently serving during the time this was an issue (still am)…Truman was held because they had no money to fund the deployment and they were waiting for it due to no money coming in (yes each deployment per unit has its own budget, i learned about this as i know one of the Admin officers aboard), the bush is in fact a carrier (our newest one in fact until the Ford is commissioned), enterprise has still not been touched and still sits in yards because she is not stricken (in fact sailors still get orders to her) so while you are correct some individual who doesn’t know anything about the picture and is eccentric enough to read to far into made this meme, you guys are equally screwed up, do your research THEN point out their faults first.
