USS Mount Whitney Transits Straits - USS Cowpens Allegedly Denied

From Zvezda TV News:

We have just received footage of the American destroyer (sic) Mount Whitney transiting the Dardanelles. According to the Turkish authorities, this is the third American vessel to transit the straits. The amphibious command destroyer can conduct strategic electronic reconnaissance and is one of the most modern ships in the American fleet. According to the Americans she is on her way to Georgia with humanitarian cargo.

The text of this TV reports adds that the Turkish government refused permission of the USS Cowpens to transit the straits.

It is good the see the Mt. Whitney doing some good. I spent alot of time on her while she was COMSECONDFLT flagship. Mostly sat in Norfolk.

Excellent blog by the way.

The Cowpens is a guided-missle cruiser, that would seem to be a provocative vessel for the US to send in . . . According to this report it was in a port in Batam, Indonesia 19-21 August. Perhaps someone in the Russian press got Batam and Batumi confused?

Bakinets -

Heh. That is completely plausible, except that the Russians are reporting that the Turkish government refused them.

Unless the Russians are just making shit up, which isn't unheard of.

doesn't make sense, Cowpens is a Pacific based cruiser.
