Freedom of Navigation

Since 1776, freedom of the seas, the right to sail without restriction in international waters, has been a cardinal principle of U.S. foreign policy. To assert that right during the Cold War, the Navy executed numerous freedom of navigation (FON) missions - sometimes contested - in the Gulf of Sidra off Libya, along the Black Sea coast of the Soviet Union, and elsewhere around the globe.
