    I really don't understand the thinking behind this program. I understood it for the LNG ships, but this I just don't get. There is no shortage of American ships for American cadets to sail on. I see no advantage gained by having them sail on foreign flagged ships. I'm not sure where the Administrator is going with this at all. I wish I had some insight into his thinking here.
