How the hell does a sub tap an underwater fiber optic cable and eavesdrop? That's a new one on me and I've been in int'l telecom for 15 years.

There is more top secret stuff on that sub than you can imagine, US subs have the best technology in the world, once submerged try to find it. Our best sub hunters the P-3 Orion cannot find them.

I just hope they don't send it in by it self without enough help or backup like Jimmy did in Iran right before Regan came in and had to clean it up for him. Nice sub though.
