WASHINGTON (AP) - Defense officials say two nuclear-powered Russian attack submarines have been patrolling in international waters off the East Coast for several days.

They want to check on America’s reaction to Putin’s latest “He Man” photos.
DRUDGE has it as his top story now.
...just passing through. ;-)
If we know about them and are tracking them, then they are useless.
Not withstanding the nukes.
YOU are too quick.
ATTACK NUCLEAR SUBMARINES???
No big deal??? Not overly concerned???
Obama being President has screwed us I think.
Which begs the unanswerable ponder: I wonder where our boomers are hanging out...
LOL! Maybe they will save us and remove the evil Marxists in Washington DC.
The Policticians in DC - Obama, Pelosi and Reid are FAR more evil than the Russians.
One ping only Vasili
Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?
Wonder what TOTUS going to do?
Is it 3am yet?
I agree with you but it is also a big so what to me. Those of us who are veterans know this existed all the time before the fall of the USSR. It was a huge cat and mouse game between submariners on a very deadly level. All the while unknown to the general public on a daily routine.
The fact that this report comes out in the public domain is far more of a concern to me because now they know we are tracking them and can do so with all of their attempts to remain undetected. As long as they thought we were not wise to their presence, the better as it gives them no overriding priority to come up with something new.
In a word: Georgia (Soviet Georgia, that is)
apparently they are not the missle boomers that are used to launch nuclear warheads - rather attack subs against other subs and surface ships?
I remember when the same story breaking out in the late 90s. Do I like the idea of foreign subs patrolling off our coast? No. Do I think we have subs keeping an eye on Russia? You bet. Do I think this setup has been going the same since the 50s? Yes. Of course, I could always be wrong.
In other news water is wet, the sky is blue and Zero is a socialist.
