"So I want to take a moment to thank you all for everything that
you're doing for each other and for this country," she said. "I
know these service members, these sailors couldn't do what they
do without you."
Obama also praised the workers at the Groton yard and their
"particular genius" in building the sub.
The $2.7 billion vessel is the 13th in the Virginia class of
submarines, which can carry out a range of missions including
anti-submarine warfare, delivery of special forces and
surveillance. The 377-foot submarine will carry a crew of more
than 130 and a payload of weapons including torpedoes and
Obama called the submarine a "technological wonder."
"It is full of technologies like a photonics mast, full of high-
resolution and infrared cameras," she said. "It has the most
advanced stealth, sonar and communications systems and enough
high-definition screens to put Best Buy out of business."
There you have it. The brainless black bint hasn't clue.
