A Navy investigation has turned up little evidence supporting the idea that USS John S. McCain (DDG-56) was a victim of a cyber attack, making it more likely that mechanical failure or crew error is to blame for the Aug. 21 collision between the destroyer and a chemical tanker…

It still could be a North Korean limpet submarine attaching itself to the cargo ship and steering it into a collision… evil grin

No surprise there.

Now what will all the conspiracy buffs cling to?

How about NK turned the admiral and he began issuing faulty training doctrines ? evil grin

Yes, but it will always ultimately lead back to the Russians, of course.

I blame our permissive society.

Ahah!

He said "little evidence", not "no evidence". There was "little evidence" the Spanish blew up the USS Maine. Let the irresponsible speculation commence!

I remember Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea.
They had a serious possession problem.
If it weren't Admiral Nelson or Captain Crane, it was Seaman Kowalski.
Has that issue ever been resolved?

"There was "little evidence" the Spanish blew up the USS Maine."

Perhaps because they didn't.

Andrew Walters: "He said 'little evidence', not 'no evidence'"

Lol. Sounds like a Miracle Max calculation.

Miracle Max: Whoo-hoo-hoo, look who knows so much. It just so happens that your friend here is only MOSTLY dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead. Mostly dead is slightly alive. With all dead, well, with all dead there's usually only one thing you can do.
Inigo Montoya: What's that?
Miracle Max: Go through his clothes and look for loose change.

"Little evidence" = some evidence

PS. And if the "little evidence" had any Russian fingerprints on it, no matter how faint, minuscule or indirect, you can bet that most of D.C. and the US media would be all over it and they wouldn't shut up about it either.

David, I think you missed his point (or simply stated it).
