THE USS SCORPION MYSTERY SOLVED
The truth about the USS Scorpion by Capt David Williams (Bsc, MSc) retired sea captain with unlimited Master’s license and over 50 years of ocean going experience. www.LinkedIn.com
I have trimmed down most of what you read below about the USS Scorpion because I will soon release a factual docudrama that will prove beyond the slightest doubt that the US Navy covered-up the Scorpion disaster. The Admirals knew exactly why the sub sank and they lied their butts off just to keep from going to jail! To get a few sample chapter send an email to deafwhale at gmail.com!
TIDBITS ON THE USS SCORPION!
The nuclear attack submarine USS Scorpion (SSN-589) and her crew of 99 American sailors mysteriously vanished on 22 May 1968. After dropping off two crew members at the US Naval Base at Rota Spain, she supposedly escorted a Polaris missile submarine out to deep water. Her orders were to then set a straight course to her homeport at Norfolk, Virginia. Two days later, the US Navy released a chart revealing that on 21 May 1968, the USS Scorpion was only “a few miles south of the Azores” when she sent her last message. This location agreed with her orders to set a straight course home.
THE ADMIRALS KNEW SCORPION WAS IN DEPLORABLE CONDITION
The US Navy’s top brass knew the mechanical condition of the USS Scorpion. They started to worry. Was it wise to release the last known position of such a mechanically deplorable nuclear submarine? What if Scorpion had crashed to the bottom a few hours after sending her last message? If so, her wreckage was inside the territorial waters of the Azores.
“Did the newly refueled nuclear reactor break apart and dump radiation “a few miles south of the Azores?” How about the two nuclear torpedoes? Were they also leaking radiation? If so, the US Navy would be facing a monstrous nuclear clean up and the top admirals might be charged with criminally negligent homicide!
THE NAVY IS PRAYING THE CITIZENS OF THE AZORES NEVER LEARNS THE TRUTH.
What if the citizens of the Azores started worrying about radiation poisoning in the fish they ate? Congress would be forced to conduct a full-blown investigation.
The USS Scorpion’s had stress cracks in her hull near her stern. Every newspaper in the world would report these cracks. The admirals could not deny them; they were visible to the naked eye. Furthermore, maintenance staff had placed honest reports in her file to protect their own asses in case of a catastrophic hull failure due to the many visual fatigue cracks. Her maintenance file also revealed that USS Scorpion had departed Norfolk on a mission to the Mediterranean with 109 unfilled repair orders. The admirals would be found guilty of knowingly sending 99 sailors on a suicide mission!
THE EVIDENCE IS SOLID
As shocking proof… the admirals had limited her dive depth to 300 feet because they knew her system to pump air into her ballasts tanks and float her to the service was inoperative. The only way Scorpion could surface from 300 feet in an emergency was by suddenly increasing the turns of her propeller with both starboard and port dive planes set at a steep up angle.
If she suffered a busted propeller and/or a broken shaft with no way to blow her ballast tanks, she would sink like a stone and the admirals knew it before she left Norfolk! I say again, there is absolute proof beyond a shadow of doubt that the admirals knew the USS Scorpion was a wreck looking for a place to crash even before she left home base. In fact, the 99 sailors who died on the USS Scorpion had nicknamed her the USS Scrapiron a few weeks before they departed on their final mission. They picked the name because it best described what turned out to be their coffin.
THE US NAVY KILLED THESE SAILORS JUST AS IF THEY WOULD HAVE LINED THEM UP AND SHOT THEM THROUGH THE HEART!
The admirals knew they had to deny the USS Scorpion was anywhere near the Azores .
THEY KNEW A FAKED SECRET SPY MISSION WAS THE BEST WAY TO RELOCATE SCORPION!
That’s why they started claiming that Scorpion had been sent to the Canary Islands on a spy mission. There never was any proof of this spy mission. It was all bullshit!
They even put a new chart shown below. They could only pray that no one paid close attention because comparing the two would reveal the deception.
In fact, an article published in xxxxxxxxx reports the Scorpion “400 miles south of the Azores” when she sank. She had been shifted away from the Azores and the Canary Islands.
After the faked spy mission USS Scorpion supposedly headed away from the Canary Islands on a straight course to Norfolk. She then allegedly crashed due to an unexplained catastrophic event 400 miles south of the Azores. Far away from the territorial waters of any country. In other words, the secret spy mission relocated the wreck site out of the Azores and into International waters. This lie relieved the US Navy’s obligation to clean up a nuclear-contaminated wreck site. The lie also kept the Admirals out of jail!
I HOPE THE PEOPLE OF THE AZORES ORDER MY NEW BOOK. THEY ARE GOING TO BE MAD AS HELL!
The lies explain why the US Navy has refused to allow an independent party to dive on the wreck. Instead, they declared it off-limits as sacred burial grounds of the 99 US sailors they murdered.
