Claim: President Obama ordered five first line U.S. aircraft carriers into port together in a shocking breach of military protocol.

2ND PEARL HARBOR?????
What is wrong with this picture?
The picture is of the five "first line" US nuclear carriers docked together in one place. Just like Battleship Row, Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941.
This picture was taken the other day in Norfolk, Virginia. The Obama Administration ordered 5 nuclear carriers into harbor for "routine" (?) inspections. Heads of the Navy were flabbergasted by the directive but had to comply as it was a direct order from their Commander of Deceit.
The carriers were all pulled out from the MIDDLE EAST and the Afghanistan support role leaving our land forces naked and exposed!
NORFOLK, VA. (February 8, 2013). This is the first time since WWII that five  nuclear powered aircraft carriers were docked together:
USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), USS Enterprise (CVN 65), USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), and USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) are all in port at Naval Station Norfolk, Va., the world's largest naval station.
Knowledgeable Sources stated that this breached a long standing military protocol in the Navy meant to avoid a massive enemy strike on major US forces. Obama is ‘Commander in chief’. This ordering of most of the Navy's capitol ships into one place is unprecedented since Pearl Harbor! This could be the creation of a false flag atomic incident too stupid for any enemy to pass up.
Origins: This photograph of ships lined up at the piers of the Norfolk Naval Base was widely circulated online beginning in
Although the Norfolk photograph was circulated in March 2013 as something snapped "the other day," it was actually taken in mid-December 2012, when many
The Navy makes a point of trying to gives its shipboard crews a chance to spend Christmas with their families, and for a few days the percentage of ships underway drops to the lowest point it will be all year. But many of these ships will be gone in two weeks as the pace of operations picks up again.
Sheds cover the ABRAHAM LINCOLN's flight deck as she prepares to cross to Newport News early next year to begin a three-and-a-half-year refueling overhaul, the most comprehensive refit a carrier will undergo in its 50-year service life.
HARRY S. TRUMAN has completed most of her training and is expected to deploy to the Fifth Fleet region later this winter.
GEORGE H. W. BUSH completed a major overhaul in early December and is in the early stages of deployment work ups.
For nearly a week beginning [2 July 1997], the flattops will be nextdoor neighbors along the piers at Norfolk Naval Base, Navy spokesman Mike Maus said.
"It just worked out that way," Maus said. "There was no plan to say, 'Let's bring all the carriers in for the Fourth of July.' Between scheduling for normal routine operations and shipyard stuff, that's how it happened to fall into place."
Usually only two or three of the carriers are in port together, with others out on exercises or deployments to the Mediterranean Sea, or at the shipyard for repairs, Maus said.
All five will remain at the base until [8 July], when the USS Theodore Roosevelt will head to Newport News Shipbuilding for an overhaul that is expected to take about a year.
Four carriers will be beside each other, with two each at Piers 11 and 12. The fifth will be at Pier 7, the other pier deep enough to accommodate an carrier.
The Navy doesn't consider having all five in port at the same time to be a security risk, Maus said: "At this particular time, we don't really have much of a threat from anybody."
