What better time for the US to be slashing it's Naval force by 40 to 60 vessels...
Come on, how gullible do you have to be to swallow this crap. The Navy could not spot the tail entering the Gulf, or patrolling the Gulf for a whole month, but suddenly and miraculously could spot the tail as it was leaving the Gulf and from that lone sighting determine it was in the Gulf for a whole month.

The Akula is one (it's possible their are faster ones that are big-time Classified) of the fastest submarines on the planet earth, it's hull is made of Titanium and it is very quiet. It is not inconceivable that this sub could enter the Gulf of Mexico undetected, but if you understand what this platform is, you would not be so quick to profess that all is lost... It's an Attack Submarine. Although it is probably not out of the realm that it could carry Nuclear capable surface to surface missiles, it is not the type of submarine that could carry long range ICBM's on the magnitude of the Typhoon class, or other ships we would use the slang term Boomers. It is a very small, very fast attack submarine and yes, we sometimes drop the ball and miss them... It doesn't mean New York city, or Miami is in any more danger than they would be by a rogue nuke packed into a container ship.
Russkies got `em a new submarine...

Surprise! That Russian Submarine in Stockholm Got Away From the Swedish Navy
OCTOBER 24, 2014 - After spending a week scouring the waters off Stockholm for a reportedly Russian submarine, the Swedish Navy has given up. On Friday, the country's military reported that the vessel (or vessels) in question have left the Stockholm archipelago and that the intelligence operation, as military officials had insisted on calling it, would be coming to an end.
I imagine there is a way to blame Bush if we work at it.
