Re: 1969 EC-121 Shootdown
In a message dated 4/22/2001 4:53:01 PM Pacific Daylight Time,
<< President Nixon order an immediate halt of all aerial reconnaissance
missions in the Sea of Japan, but rescinded his order three days later, this
time ordering that all peripheral reconnaissance missions off North Korea be
accompanied by fighter escorts. >>
Doesn't this sound familiar?
I heard Bush is considering the use of fighter escorts in future spy missions.
History must be repeating itself.
Anyway, thanks for the more informative history!
But I am not sure your version will be the last word on the incident.
Are you in agreement that this incident was kept in dark by US
at the time? How about N.Korea?
Didn't they announce it in their media?
BTW, why is Navy always involved in these flying spy missions when
these should have been handled by the Air Force?
Is Navy more intelligent than the Air Force?
