Bryan McGrath takes on Politifact’s take on fleet size.

The Tampa Bay Times’ site undertook an inquiry recently (“Anatomy of a talking point: the smallest Navy since 1917”, Monday, August 3, 2015) into the truth of a statement made by GOP Presidential Candidate Lindsey Graham in June, when he said “”I’m going to rebuild our military. We’re on a course to have…the smallest Navy since 1915.” Author and site Deputy Editor Louis Jacobson pointed out that this is the second presidential campaign cycle in which references to the Navy’s fleet size have been made in comparison to its size before World War I.
