Please correct "formerly" to "formally" in the final paragraph. Also, I think it would have been appropriate to note that the $40M Liberty -- recently refurbished/made into a state-of-the-art intelligence-gathering vessel -- was so mangled and unrepairable that it was, in due course, sold somewhere in the US for *scrap value*!

Otherwise, a great and informative and damning report! Appreciated....
