Iran threatens US Navy

Iran says it will target U.S. aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf if a war breaks out. An Iranian military official says the country could sink a U.S. aircraft carrier like the USS Nimitz and that the country is practicing on a replica. A spokesman from the Pentagon says they have no doubt Iran could sink the replica it has built, but Col. Steve Warren says sinking a U.S. aircraft carrier is another matter entirely and he has no confidence in Iran's capability to sink one.

Lt. Tim Hawkins, Spokesperson, Navy Submarine Force

A few hours change in sleep patterns might not seem like a big deal. But for members of the Navy's silent service, it could have major implications. The Navy has given commanders the green light to change submariners' sleep schedules, so that they more closely resemble life above the ocean's service. Now, sailors' work days will begin every 24 hours, instead of every 18 hours. Lt. Tim Hawkins, a spokesman for the submarine force, told Federal Drive hosts Tom Temin and Emily Kopp what prompted the changes.
