Kennedy: Not Involved in Collision


The United States Navy has confirmed that the aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy was not involved in a collision, and is in fact undamaged and in good operating condition. This information contradicts a rumor that appeared earlier this morning from a Cuban News Agency and from an obscure Caribbean news service.

UPDATE: The aircraft carrier pictured here is not, according the Navy sources, the John F. Kennedy. The carrier photographed is the USS Oriskany, which was sunk last year in order to create an artificial reef.
