They did not think it much of a threat.
Reason? They let them get in that close, a sea skimmer could have been launched miles away if there was hostile intent.
It is the escort ships that are responsible for the carrier's security and radar intercept iff.
The alert aircraft would have been launched long before the bombers showed up on the carrier's AMDR or AN/SPS-48G system.
Those escorts would have had plenty of warning of the approach, you can be sure that the standard missiles were in a ready status.
At the range the bombers were at, the carriers ciws mk15 would have shreded them.
Also, The radar net in Japan would have alerted the ships well in advance.

What the military needs to develop is better paint ball technology... When these "games" are played just hit the bottom of the plane in red, white and blue paint... Make a good laugh...
But nothing to worry about, the us navy will be doing the sane thing to Russian ships... Its such a common thing, the only reason it would have made news would be a reporter was on board at the time...
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them
Lest we forget

Our team must have been sleeping if a bear bomber got within one mile. They are noisy and slow. Christmas I could hear them old hags from 20 miles I bet.
!/3 of their crap in Syria has failed in the dusty conditions of the county. Their tanks were chopped up by out a-10's. The bear 's teeth are not very sharp....
