USS John F. Kennedy Involved in Collision?

An obscure Caribbean news agency has reported that the United States Navy aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy, recently spared from decommissioning, has collided with a tanker during refueling operations.

A press spokesman for OPNAV denied this report in no uncertain terms. "The Kennedy has not been involved in an accident," he said. "The entire report is absurd; the JFK is operating close to base and required no refueling. No tankers are even in her area."


This is part of a foreign policy simulation for the Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce. The events depicted are not actually happening.
