Submarine News

A periscope sweep of the ocean made by the crew of a U.S. Navy submarine was not thorough enough -- according to newspaper reports today. The Washington Times says the finding is part of a confidential navy report on the crash of the USS Greeneville into a Japanese ship off Hawaii. Host Noah Adams talks to NPR's Tom Gjelten about that and another report that the commander was aware of sonar soundings that indicated a ship was nearby.
