WASHINGTON  -  A Chinese submarine stalked a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier battle group in the Pacific last month and was undetected until it surfaced within firing range, The Washington Times reported on Monday.

The Chinese Song-class diesel-powered attack submarine was seen within five miles of the carrier Kitty Hawk and its accompanying warships on Oct. 26, the newspaper said, citing defense officials.

The surfaced submarine was spotted by a routine surveillance flight by one of the U.S. carrier group's planes, the report said.

A Navy spokeswoman in Washington had no comment on the report.

Disclosure of the surprise encounter comes as the commander of the U.S. Navy's Pacific Fleet, Adm. Gary Roughead, was making his first visit to China which began over the weekend, The Washington Times said.

The four-star admiral was scheduled to meet senior Chinese military leaders during the weeklong visit, the paper said.

How Do We Know

How do we know that this is not sensationalism made up out of whole clothe by China Threat conspirationists?

There are many other ways of leaving a calling card.  Why would the sub want to surface?  Sounded kinda risky, knowing how bloodthirsty the hegemon is.

no risk at all playing in your own backyard as this not a  China of  yesteryears......

Careful about Washington Times

The Washington Times is a right wing newspaper run by religious nut Sun Myung Moon.  The man used to call for a war between China and the USA.  You can't trust a word that is written in that paper.
