Why Did USS Fitzgerald Not See Container Ship On Its Radar? Where Was Radar Operator?

The above is my version of title by Bill Gertz at freebeacon.com.

We know now that the Captain/Commander was sleeping when the collision occurred. So, where was the radar operator? Where were the lookouts on the bridge? And why didn’t the Fitzgerald’s automatic warning systems indicate the huge container ship was on a collision course?

These are just some of the many questions we and the 7 dead sailors’ families need answers to.

We hope they are forthcoming and that there is no coverup.
