Navy: Lincoln Refueling Delayed, Will Hurt Carrier Readiness
Homeland [in]Security and others can spend millions and millions on ammunition but not this - one of the Primary purposes of the Federal Government? WTF?
The U.S. Navy will delay the refueling of the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72) for an unknown period because of the uncertain fiscal environment due to the ongoing legislative struggle, the service told Congress in a Friday message obtained by USNI News.
Well as long as the ObamaBots get their ObamaPhones!
Lincoln was scheduled to be moved to Huntington Ingalls Industries' (HII) Newport News Shipyard later this month to begin the 4-year refueling and complex overhaul (RCOH) of the ship.
"This delay is due to uncertainty in the Fiscal Year 2013 appropriations bill, both in the timing and funding level available for the first full year of the contract," the message said.
"CVN-72 will remain at Norfolk Naval Base where the ships force personnel will continue to conduct routine maintenance until sufficient funding is received for the initial execution of the RCOH."
And how many billions have gone to ACORN like programs? How many wasted on useless CRAP the federal government has no business doing anyway?
BTW: Nice picture of 5 carriers all in a row down at the link. Carrier row?
