Re: Breaking news: Coast guard intercepted terrorist boat

Regarding PS's muckraking : did the CG say anything about the initial distance between two boats or a scenario in the open sea the necessity to maintain top speed by the CG ship? Am not sure what is his questions are now
And I suppose his initial list is pretty much rubbish now?
