Interesting story on MSN about German cargo from WWII coming ashore in Texas.

I wonder why there wasn"t an attempt to capture the ship and take it into a friendly port rather than use it as target practice by the U.S. warships.

I suspect the crews efforts to scuttle the ship rendered it non seaworthy and it was then a navigational hazard.
