Is there a connection between the Soviet K129 Submarine sinking, and the USS Scorpion sinking in 1968? Why is there a “Glomar Exception” to the Freedom of Information Act? Why is the cause of the K129 sinking still “Top Secret”? There are lots of intriguing questions that have been raised, and much insight into the cold war role of submarines that surfaces (or sinks). There may be a connection here and the changes in US/Soviet/ Sino relations in the Nixon era. This is not a story with a definitive end, it is an exercise in critical thinking and window into the curious events of 1962-1980+.
