Osama's 'burial ship' Captain fears for crew safety in aftermath of operation

Washington , Tue, 14 Jun 2011 ANI

Washington, June 14 (ANI): The commanding officer of the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier that buried Osama bin Laden's body in the depths of the Arabian Sea has raised concerns about the lives of his crew members, saying that 'appropriate precautions' must be taken for their safety.


Captain Bruce Lindsey would reach San Diego on Wednesday along with his 5,500 sailors, pilots and crew after ending a six-month deployment.


He, however, avoided making any comment on bin Laden's burial while speaking to reporters in a teleconference call from the ship, reports.


"We try to bring that (idea) into a sailor's everyday life too, so that when they are off the ship, off the base, they maintain an acute awareness of everything around them," he added.


He referred the context to an earlier incident in 1989 when the wife of the captain of the USS Vincennes managed to escape unharmed after a pipebomb blew up under her mini-van, as she drove to work in San Diego, nine months after the ship had shot down Iran Air Flight 655 in the Persian Gulf, killing 290 civilians.


The FBI later said that the pipebomb case was plotted by someone having a personal enmity with former Navy Captain William C. Rogers III.


Captain Lindsey also stressed that has been working with Family Readiness Groups (FRG) to ensure no details of their operation slip out on Facebook or other social media sites that would compromise their safety. (ANI)
