The Taking of K-129
Josh Dean talked about his book The Taking of K-129, in which he recalls the CIA’s Project Azorian, an approximately $800 million covert operation to recover a sunken Soviet submarine. The Soviet submarine, which disappeared on February 25, 1968, was discovered three miles under the sea by the U.S. Navy, who deemed its recovery impossible. The CIA’s Directorate of Science and Technology took over the operation and deliberately lied that the ship created to recover the sub was owned by Howard Hughes to mine minerals from the ocean floor. close
