This is what set off my BS meter:
According to some specialized media, 27 sailors from the USS Donald Cook requested to be relieved from active service.

The specialized media was RT.

The original source appears to be a "news" piece put out by state-run Russian media.

Today, December 8th, is the thirty forth anniversary of John Lennon's death. I was driving out the main gate at Minot to go into town when I heard the news. For me, it was definately one of those "Remember what you were doing when..." moments.
