USS Grayback submarine discovered 75 years later

Read about the history of this submarine here.

Great job by the folks at the Lost 52 Project. About their mission:

“Our mission objective is to provide the fullest possible documentation and accounting of these locations for our missing WWII Navy Sailors, their families and the nation. Our mission goes beyond discovery and exploration and includes site surveys, developing complete database on each submarine, enabling community outreach and build education components that will stand the test of time. This includes collecting and preserving memorabilia, artifacts, scanned correspondence, official documentation, oral histories, films and photos that are shared by family members. A total of 52 U.S. Submarines were lost in WWII with 374 officers and 3131 men of the Submarine Force who gave their lives. Currently there have been seven of these “Lost 52” that have been found. Our team has discovered five of those submarines and we are engaging with several organizations who have also made discoveries.”

President Roosevelt’s speech to the nation:

Seventy-one years ago today, America saw a great evil and, in near unison, rose up and removed that evil’s shadow from the face of the Earth.
That was nearly a lifetime ago, and this was a very different America.
We shall never see the likes of that America again.

On 9/11 anniversary, Obama sends greetings to Arab group

On December 7, 1952, the 11th anniversary of Japan’s bombing of Pearl Harbor, President Harry S. Truman spent the day sending his personal greetings of thanks and praise to a Japanese group.

No. That didn’t happen.

But Obama did the equivalent of that yesterday, on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, by sending his personal greetings of thanks and praise to an Arab group, the Arab Forum on Asset Recovery that’s having its first meeting today in Doha, Qatar. Among the meeting’s attendees is Eric Holder. The Arab Forum’s goal is to recover assets stolen by formerly autocratic regimes, including Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya.

Joel B. Pollak reports for Breitbart, Sept. 11, 2012, that Obama is “using the day to issue greetings to the Arab Forum on Asset Recovery, seemingly oblivious to the importance and solemnity of the day, as well as the context of his message.”

In his greeting, Obama makes no mention of 9/11, the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood, or the role of Qatar-based Al Jazeera in broadcasting radical anti-American propaganda. But the POS does give thanks to the Emir of Qatar–“His Highness Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani”–and praises the inspiring democratic example of the Arab Spring, which happened to leave the absolute monarchy of Qatar untouched, as well as led to Muslim extremists taking over governments, most notably in Egypt.

Breitbart News also points out Obama’s hypocrisy.

To honor the day, both Obama and Mitt Romney had pledged not to campaign today. So what did the POS do?

He’s having Bill Clinton campaign for him in Florida!
