Ominous submarine portents - Part 4: NCIS - USS Miami Sabotage Still Under Consideration

Conclusions drawn by M.E. from NCIS reward amount (Ominous submarine portents - Part 3) have been affirmed.

1. Sabotage has not been ruled out at this time.
2. Additional funds have been requested from Congress ($220 million more than the $400 million)

As reported July 20th by New London's theday.com: Investigators looking at subsequent small blaze, pulling of alarm nearby

The Naval Criminal Investigative Service has not ruled out the possibility of a connection between the large blaze that severely damaged the USS Miami, a small fire that later broke out near the submarine and a fire alarm that was pulled.

NCIS spokesman Ed Buice said that while the ongoing investigation has not found evidence that suggests the three incidents are related, "that possibility cannot be eliminated at this time."'

The Navy has asked Congress to add $220 million to the operations and maintenance budget for emergent and unfunded ship repairs, which will be used to continue the repairs on the Miami.
