Caption: Pascagoula, Miss., Dec 24 2000, two tug boats gently push USS Cole (DDG 67) to Pier 4 of the Ingalls Shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss., on Dec. 24, 2000. The Arleigh Burke-class destroyer was the target of a terrorist attack in Aden, Yemen, on Oct. 12, during a scheduled refueling. The attack killed 17 crew members and injured 39 others.

May we never have to re-live the threat potential of an unexpected encounter. But if we would have had these capabilities (below) on Oct. 31, 2000; I can tell you that 17 deaths and 39 injuries would not have occurred...
