    It is not a waste of money or time. First - it is training to undertake salvage jobs. Second - these wrecks are very valuable. Many spend millions looking for such historic things. Third - this shows to the world the capabilities of our forces. Don't forget - we have the only armed-force in the world to have crushed a terrorist organization.
