Navy confirms sunken vessel in Thailand is U.S. WWII sub

Navy confirms sunken vessel in Thailand is U.S. WWII sub - Star Bulletin, June 17, 2006
USS Lagarto underway, circa late 1944. Lagarto, a 1,526-ton Balao-class diesel sub, was one of 52 submarines lost during the Pacific war...
Don comments: I don't get this sudden story on the Lagarto. It looks like it was found at least last year, and there are now dives to it (here and here)... Plus here's a story from 10 months ago, last August, in the San Diego newspaper. So why all the fuss now, especially if there are dives into it already?
