Years later, Bucher remained angry that no U.S. forces were sent to aid the Pueblo.
Dirty little secret time. The ROK Air Force said they would be willing to fly CAP for the Pueblo. 5th air force said no they had it covered. Small problem, there were only two planes on alert when this all went down, two F-4s with the wrong kind of weapons. Think one bomb pre plane, two-man comcept/no-lone zone and you might guess what they were carrying.

I'm beginning to believe they were carrying the "right" weapons and should have delivered them with extreme prejudice to Kim Il Sung's front doorstep.

Dirty little secret part two: the asshole who purposely sent the Pueblo out with inadequate armament sat at the desk across from my father at the Pentagon. My dad took him to task for days over his decision to allow the ship to go out in unsatisfactory condition. He did it anyway. The bastard who made the decision made Captain. I wouldn't share this information except that my dad beat Pete Bucher to the grave Dec 17, 2003.
