Sometimes, even utter incompetence becomes difficult to believe.

I mean, let's say you have some limp-wristed, "esthprestho with a twistht"-drinking boho arranging and directing the multimedia portion of the show. He still has to find the photo somewhere. And even if he delegates finding the photo to someone else, that person still has to find the photo somewhere. That would leave at least two who dropped the ball.

It remains unclear how or why the Democratic Party used what’s believed to be images of the Russian Black Sea Fleet at their convention.

it's clear to me.......just do a FR word search "Russia"....and see the threads over the last month

NO EXCUSE for this. Utter incompetence most likely. Obviously those who care the military were not sought after to help with this.
Disgusting beyond belief.

Well that EWT just painted a ‘target on his back’.
They will probably get him for identifying the Russkies radar systems and ‘blowing the whistle’.

Can't really tell from the multi screen display but I'd guess that those F-5/T-38s came from the big screen version of photoshop.

Also, can't imagine how anyone screening the images failed to note that those are NOT US warships.

(Maybe I should have watched the convention.)

(Nope, hindsight is fine.)

——Sometimes, even utter incompetence becomes difficult to believe.———

I concur....one would think if they wanted photos of American warships they would call the Navy up and ask for what they wanted....the navy must have a media person or liaison...to congress

How hard is that....it’s not like this was a spur of the moment thing....

It probably took all the restraint that the convention planners could muster to avoid festooning the hall with hammer-and-sickle flags and Lenin tribute posters.

No. As Kristinn pointed out, Navy Times is a Gannett publication. Gannett is not a subsidiary of the United States Navy.

Two pics (one of US aircraft - one of Russian ships) were photoshopped together to put that on the ‘split screen.’ But, knowing the DNC is full of commies, I’d bet the guy who put this together knew those were Russian ships - and delighted in using them!

Sort of interesting that a Russian sub prowled around in the Gulf of Mexico for a month without detection before this...

But... but... but... the dumber-than-a-box-of-rocks Democrats will argue that it must be an American ship because it didn't have a backwards "R" posted prominently somewhere on the hull to indicate its "Russian-ness".

Don't underestimate the liberal mind. A liberal I work with had a son in the US Air Force. He made a portrait of his son and put Navy FA-18s in it. Perhaps he should be given credit for at least using US Navy jets and not some foreign ones. I haven't had the heart to tell him those aren't Air Force aircraft as he spent a lot of time working on the picture.

That photo certainly raised the hair on this old EW. It reminds me of cruising past the Baltic Fleet at Kronsadt Island in the 70’s when a TEAC reel-to-reel recorder was my best friend (among other goodies).

"The first two ships seem to be Krivak-class frigates, but it’s hard to discern from the silhouette, experts said.”
Not true.
“Weenie pack, lips on stack, guns in back....Krivak” ~ A Navy EW

Agree. #2 is carrying "Top Plate" radar (although lead ship is probably a Krivak from the minimal radar carried)

Here appear to be the rear three ships in a different photo

From that I'd say #2 is a Neustrashimy frigate ("Top Plate". single one gun turret forward, rear deckhouse out to hull side)

But they got #3 right

Similarly, the third ship has a MR-310 “Head Net” air search radar, shaped like two off-set bananas, at its masthead and is mostly likely the guided missile destroyer Smetlivyy
Not that difficult, as it is the only ship left with "Head Net/TopPair" radar.
