The aircraft carrier Saratoga fired one or two missiles at a Turkish ship in the Aegean last month because U.S. sailors thought a drill was a real attack, Pentagon sources said Friday. Five Turkish sailors, including the captain, were killed and 15 injured when one or both of the U.S. antiaircraft missiles hit the Turkish destroyer Muavenet on Oct. 1 during a NATO exercise.
