The investigation into the collision between a U.S. submarine and a Japanese fishing vessel off the coast of Hawaii raises questions about the "command climate" aboard the submarine, according to two retired submarine skippers who have been closely following the case. The retired captains do not have firsthand knowledge of what happened aboard the fast-attack nuclear submarine Greeneville before it collided with the 190-foot Ehime Maru while performing an emergency surfacing drill on Feb. 9.

The commander of the San Diego-based submarine that snared a tugboat in June has been relieved of command because of the fatal accident and two other incidents, Navy officials said Saturday. Citing lack of confidence, Navy officials relieved Cmdr. John H. Sohl III of his command of the nuclear-powered Houston. The submarine was on standby during the filming of the movie "Hunt for Red October" when it snagged a 1,000-foot steel cable and sank the tugboat Barcona 10 miles southwest of Long Beach.

Officials investigating a Navy submarine's sinking of a tugboat off Los Angeles--killing one crewman--are questioning how a submarine equipped with highly sophisticated listening devices failed to avoid the accident. The Houston, a nuclear-powered submarine based in San Diego, sank the tug Barcona before dawn Wednesday when it snagged a 1,000-foot steel cable connecting the tugboat to two empty barges. The sub yanked the tugboat backward and into the water about 10 miles southwest of Long Beach.

October 17, 2004 | Martin Peretz, Martin Peretz is editor in chief of the New Republic.
Like many American Jews, I was brought up to believe that if I pulled the Republican lever on the election machine my right hand would wither and, as the Psalmist says, my tongue would cleave to the roof of my mouth. According to the Bible, of course, these are the feared consequences of forgetting Jerusalem. Now although there are many reasons one might want to vote for John F. Kerry, remembering Jerusalem -- remembering to stand up for the state of Israel -- is not among them.

Detectives searching for James "Jake" Bush's killer are hoping the lead that will break the case will come from teachers, counselors or students within the Ventura Unified School District. On Tuesday, Ventura Police Dets. Glen "Skip" Young and Pat Stevens went to Balboa Middle School, where Bush's mother and stepfather--Gail and Bob Shirley--teach, and asked for help. They also distributed informational fliers with a composite sketch of a suspect being sought.
