Titanic Discovery Was Part Of Classified Navy Project.

Dr. Robert Ballard, who discovered the wreck of the Titanic back in the 1980's, tells that his discovery was a cover by the US Navy for Ballard's real mission: discovering the wreckages and fates of two US Navy submarines, Thresher and Scorpion.

Wow. That happened during the years I was in the Navy myself. I worked as a Cryptologic Technician, and anything having to do with the US Navy's submarine programs was the most hush-hush of all the classified programs. Even at Cinclantfleet HQ where I worked, only a few of the techs where I worked were cleared to look at certain aspects of the submarine programs.
