At least 12 huge, unarmed ships of the Navy's Military Sealift Com- mand have been sent on the Cape route rather than through the Suez Canal, the Navy confirmed. The de- tour adds miles to the voyage for ships re-supplying American troops in Iraq. The vessels were rerouted for se- curity reasons, said Cmdr.
