His worse nightmare and then a reality with a virtually undefendable ship. I've read the sites accounts. They did the best they could with what they had to do with as far as prolonging a takeover so papers etc could be burned etc.
OK - I'm going to rant - the support he had - or lack of it was a carrier group armed with only NUKES on the deck!
Kind of like the Japaneese a/carriers caught with the wrong bomb load during a decisive battle in WWII - Ooops.

And LBJ took Cmdr Butcher to task? What an @ss.
Ahhhhh - whatever - Those who know - Know!
Thanks for the opportunity to vent - hung up inside for a long time ...

In refelection I look to congress and their wimpy attitude. We had better elect some Guys and Gals with some "huevos" or be ready to submit.
