A Russian nuclear-powered attack submarine armed with long-range cruise missiles operated undetected in the Gulf of Mexico for several weeks and its travel in strategic U.S. waters was only confirmed after it left the region, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.

It is only the second time since 2009 that a Russian attack submarine has patrolled so close to U.S. shores.

The stealth underwater incursion in the Gulf took place at the same time Russian strategic bombers made incursions into restricted U.S. airspace near Alaska and California in June and July, and highlights a growing military assertiveness by Moscow.

One official said the Akula operated without being detected for a month.

“The Akula was built for one reason and one reason only: To kill U.S. Navy ballistic missile submarines and their crews,” said a second U.S. official.

“It’s a very stealthy boat so it can sneak around and avoid detection and hope to get past any protective screen a boomer might have in place,” the official said, referring to the Navy nickname for strategic missile submarines.

Cornyn presses Navy for more info on Russian subs in US coastal waters

By Carlo Munoz - 08/17/12 01:52 PM ET

A top Senate Republican wants to know how a Russian attack submarine was able to conduct a patrol mission miles off the U.S. coastline without the knowledge of the American military or intelligence officials.

In a letter to Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jonathan Greenert on Friday, Sen. John Cornyn (Texas) demanded "a detailed explanation of the facts" surrounding the incident in which an Akula-class nuclear attack submarine was able to sail into the Gulf of Mexico undetected.

"The submarine patrol ... seems to represent a more aggressive and destabilizing Russian military stance that could pose risks to our national security," Cornyn said in the letter.

They are checking out defenses and if we can detect their way around us. In the future, they know how to come in and infiltrate people. Keep in mind, after the cold war nothing changed in Russia. The old guard still in power and Putin is just a reflection of them.

We have a weak leader they have a stronger leader so they are not concerned what we think.  Or maybe they just wanted to confirm in person what the Obama said with that open mic slip up.  

WE DO NOT have a 'weak leader'.  We have NO LEADER at all.  He pushes and shoves.  He forces his way.  He DEMANDS OBEDIENCE.  He does NOT lead.  He is far more dagerous than any of us can even dream in our worst nightmares.

...obama is no opposition to the russians......cause he is one of the commie scumbag, that want to destroy us!!

Randal, I stand correct.   We indeed have no leader....thanks.

with the nut case obama letting our military go to hell and then putting our military personnel in jail when they sound something, is there any wonder why this happens, every military member active or retired need to vote obama out of office. 

Why? To take pictures of women on the beaches...

Badger you did not read the replies. They are checking out defenses and if we can detect their way around us. In the future, they know how to come in and infiltrate people. Keep in mind, after the cold war nothing changed in Russia. Hitler obama is destroying our nation and our military, people needs to wake up.

 

Badger, are you saying that our woman are our only defenses?    

Eddie, do you have a next of kin you would like me to notify?  For now I think I will step back from you about a few hundred yards.  My advise my friend......take it like a man and just enjoy it til the end.   

Gregory, do you know what you get with 32 Russian women ?  A full set of teeth.

It's just another show of proof that this idiot of a president is secretly trying to destroy our country from within..remember what he said to Medvedev with that open mike,"tell Vladimir I'll have more freedom to do what I want when I get reelected."This imposter, traitor, needs to beer removed from office in November!!

ALERT ALERT

 REVEALED: Here’s What Dirty Cop Mueller And His Team
Of Liberal Hack Lawyers Are Costing Taxpayers Per Month

The Mueller ‘Russia’ investigation was built on a foundation of lies and cost taxpayers $6.7 million within the first 5 months!
 
Thanks to AG Sessions for recusing himself, corrupt swamp creature Rosenstein appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to target Trump and his team in what is the greatest witch hunt in US political history.

To add insult to injury, Americans are paying over $1 million a month, watching in horror as an innocent president is investigated yet the real criminals–Hillary, Lynch, Obama, Holder, Rice, McCabe, Comey et al walk freely.

The Justice Department released a report Tuesday detailing the cost of Mueller’s investigation from May 17th 2017-Sept 30th 2017.

In four and a half months, American tax payers have paid MILLIONS of dollars for Mueller’s hacks.

Expenses include:

Direct and Reimbursed Expenditures (note 1)
Personnel Compensation and Benefits (note 2) $1,709,597
Travel and Transportation of Persons (note 3) 223,643
Transportation of Things 156
Rent, Communications, and Utilities 362,550
Contractual Services (note 4) 157,339
Supplies and Materials 26,442
Acquisition of Equipment (note 5) 733,969
Total SCO Expenditures (note 6) $ 3,213,695

Mueller’s witch hunt also cost the Justice Department about $3.5 million on work attributable to the ‘Russia’ investigation, according to the DOJ report, totaling $6.7 million!

Americans are mad as hell!

We are paying millions of dollars to pay Trump-hating lawyers who are hell bent on taking down a president who won the election in an electoral landslide all because of a Hillary-funded garbage dossier!

One of the FBI agents was recently removed for sending anti-Trump text messages to an FBI lawyer with whom he was having an affair with.

Another Mueller hack was just revealed to have praised Sally Yates for defying Trump’s travel ban.

In an email obtained by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, Andrew Weissmann, special counsel Robert Mueller’s right hand man, praised then-acting attorney general Sally Yates for standing up to President Trump’s travel ban order.

We have been reporting on Mueller’s liberal dream team for months.
So have numerous other media outlets.

We reported in August that the entire team was Trump haters. Here is a summary of the Mueller team –
