A senator asks the new SecNav to obtain a declassification of the story of the loss of a nuclear submarine on a CIA operation in 1968 -- so that the families can finally learn about the loss of their loved ones. The senator is the daughter of the skipper of the boat. The SecNav turns to the JAG, who appoints a quiet and classified court of inquiry. Harm, Mac, and Sturgis serve as counsel to the court. Due to the extremely high classification of the mission, much wrangling takes place between the CIA and the Navy. However, a surprise piece of evidence leads Harm to the explanation of the resistance within the CIA. A satisfactory compromise comes about, the families learn, and Webb gets a new assignment to a nothing job in a nowhere place. Bud and Harriet together reach a high point in his rehab. Written by

That's why bodies of the dead in the ocean over a period of time cannot be found. At the time of the alleged show, subs were available to recover bodies. The incandescence, which could incinerate the crew varies in intensity depending on depth, and at 1500 ft, this may not have occurred. See more

You'd better get used to it. It's the CIA. And you don't have to whisper; we don't bug ourselves.
