 USSLosAngelesCommissioning
The Commissioning Ceremony signifies the acceptance for service and entry of a ship into the active fleet of the United States Navy.  At the moment of breaking the commissioning pennant, LOS ANGELES (SSN-688) became, as any proud ship of the line, USS LOS ANGELES (SSN-688).
The commissioning pennant has for centuries been the symbol of the man-of-war.  Today, as the distinctive mark of a ship in commission, it is flown, except when displaced by the personal flag of an admiral or commodore embarked aboard the ship. 
The modern commissioning ceremony is devoid of the ancient pagan rituals which were instituted to ward off evil spirits and seafaring denizens.  We, as a professional Navy, have outgrown these primitive superstitions.

It goes further, naming Islamofascists as the enemy, briefly recounting their attacks against America over the years, and even listing attacks that have been thwarted in America -- all of which make Moore's claim that "there is no terrorist threat" that much more ridiculous (as if the 9/11 attacks weren't enough to do so).
Instead, Annan has to this day refused even to disclose to the public such basic details as the names of Saddam's contractors or the terms of their deals.
