This is in response to your e-mail of March 23, 2009 in which you request that the Office of the Naval Inspector General open a fully public investigation into the collision between the submarine USS Hartford and amphibious ship USS New Orleans.
While the Inspector General reserves the right to investigate any matter brought to our attention, we respectfully decline to open an investigation into this issue. The Inspector General is not the appropriate entity within the Department of the Navy to address this matter especially since it is currently being addressed using another more appropriate process.
We appreciate your concern and we are assured that this matter is being adequately addressed.

Navy's Inspector General Refusing To Investigate USS Hartford Indicent, Seaworthyness of Nuclear Attack Sub
The US Navy's Investigation Into USS Hartford ACCIDENT IS MICKEY MOUSE!
Seems The United States Navy's Office of Inspector General sees no reason to investigate the MASSIVE COLLISION between the USS Hartford and the USS New Orleans in the Straight of Hormuz, even though various internet sources are starting to suggest the vessel (nuclear attack sub) is no longer seaworthy, may be nothing more than SCRAP METAL...three collisions now in the past two years (that we know of), the possibility that a Nuclear Attack Sub may now be SCRAP METAL, and the Navy Office of Inspector General sees no reason to investigate? WOW!
