Trump Was Lying About Carrier Task Force Deployment to Iran. Big Surprise.

So, a few days ago Trump trotted out John Bolton to threaten Iran, saying the deployment was meant “to send a clear and unmistakable message to the Iranian regime that any attack on United States interests or on those of our allies will be met with unrelenting force.” Of course that turns out to be utter nonsense as the deployment was planned months ago. Breaking Defense “WASHINGTON:  The day after the White House released a stern statement announcing the immediate deployments of an aircraft carrier strike group and bomber wing to the Persian Gulf to deter an unnamed Iranian threat, Navy chief Adm. John Richardson was put in what has become a familiar position for the Pentagon brass: explaining a surprise White House statement on a controversial topic. In response to National Security Advisor Advisor John Bolton’s Sunday evening statement that the forces were being dispatched to the Gulf in response to “a number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings,” by Iran, Richardson said Monday that, essentially, the deployment was just business as usual. “The Abraham Lincoln Strike Group was planned to deploy for some time now,” Richardson told the SeaAirSpace conference. He touted the Lincoln’s new route to the Gulf as an example of “dynamic force employment,” a new Navy tactic that is meant to surprise potential adversaries by having US ships show up off their coastlines without warning. He didn’t explain how a White House press release is an example of tactical surprise.” Not only did Trump and Bolton fail to distract from the political calamity du jour, they also blew the primary mission of the deployment, to achieve tactical surprise.
