Defense Officials: Russian Subs Patrolling off East Coast of United States

I used to get all excited and worried about the revelations “we the people are pieced- mealed”, on a daily basis. But, I have decided to “wonder why” instead. Why, is this coming out now? Why are we hearing about this now? Why do we need to pay attention? Any answers?

From Fox News:

WASHINGTON — Two nuclear-powered Russian attack submarines have been patrolling in international waters off the East Coast for several days, in activity reminiscent of the Cold War, defense officials said Tuesday.

U.S. Northern Command would not comment on the Russian submarines’ movement. But in a prepared statement, Northern Command spokesman Michael Kucharek acknowledged the patrols and said the U.S. has been monitoring the two submarines.

Two senior U.S. officials, however, said the submarines had been patrolling several hundred miles off the coast and so far had done nothing to provoke U.S. military concerns. The officials provided details on condition of anonymity in order to discuss intelligence reports.

Notice there is not much more to the story; if you read the rest of the article. Again, why is that?
