“A senior administration official blamed a miscommunication between the Pentagon and the White House over reports that the aircraft carrier has not made its way to the Sea of Japan” CNN
After the Pentagon dropped the ‘MOAB’ device on a bunch of insurgents hiding in Afghani caves the CIA built 30 years ago for the Mujahideen (al Qaeda) President Trump announced he had given “total authorization” authority to the Pentagon so they could wage the war they needed against “ISIS” (which is funded by us and all of our allies in the region)
Translation? Trump didn’t authorize the use of the MOAB for the distraction in Afghanistan. The Pentagon made that call.
I personally don’t believe Trump gave the authorization specifically for the strike on the Syrian airbase either. No president would want to be seen stuffing his face with “beautiful” chocolate cake in a glorified, over-priced country club while his military was potentially starting WWIII. To use a phrase that is currently popular with the babbling talking heads: that’s just bad optics.
Now we find out that the carrier group assigned to the USS Carl Vinson never went to North Korea like we were told a week ago and that instead, it sailed south toward Indonesia from Malaysia right after several high ranking Pentagon officials told us via the complicit media and possibly even the White House that it was “steaming” to North Korea to keep the dastardly Kim Jung Un from running yet another underground nuclear test.
A spokesman for the U.S. Pacific Command, which Harris heads, linked the deployment directly to the “number one threat in the region,” North Korea, and its “reckless, irresponsible and destabilizing program of missile tests and pursuit of a nuclear weapons capability.
Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters on April 11 that the Carl Vinson was “on her way up there.” Asked about the deployment in an interview with Fox Business Network that aired April 12, President Trump said: “We are sending an armada, very powerful.” Washington Post
A statement released by U.S. Pacific Command made it very clear, the group was headed north toward North Korea.
Sec. of Defense Mattis told reporters that the strike was already in the Pacific near the Korean peninsula on several occasions.
“She’s stationed there in the western Pacific for a reason. She operates freely up and down the Pacific,” said Mattis of the Vinson, implying the imposing carrier would send a message to North Korea and other actors in the region.
However, when pressed on what exactly that reason might be, Mattis seemed to backtrack saying “there’s not a specific reason or demand signal,” that brought the Vinson to the Korean peninsula Business Insider
Not only was the group not in the region… it was 3,500 miles away and wasn’t even in the same ocean.
Plus, Mattis lied to CNN when he said the scheduled drills in the Indian Ocean with the Australian navy had been cancelled. That was a total and complete lie.
