Capt. Carlson of the USS Sides was a deadbeat officer in charge of a ship whose CIC team was less than average with an axe to grind against the CIC team of the Vincennes. The Sides received notoriety after redirecting a departing commercial aircraft (from Qatar) into the approach traffic resulting in a near mid-air collision of 2 airliners in the weeks leading up to the 'downing' of flight 655. The sides crew challenged this aircraft warning continuously that they were in grave danger if they were to continue on their flight path (within the departure air corridor). Other incidents such as bad or old data reported on the network resulted in banishment by the theater commander (Vincennes) for degrading the overall integrity/reliability of the aurface/air contacts. This prompted the renegade Sides crew to blurt out 'Robo Cruiser' onto radio circuits. Anyway, Carlson was an idiot with whom the press latched onto as the voice of reason and as a reliabel info source. Puh...leaze!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
