A Message

When you move a USS Carrier group on short notice, you send a message.
When the USS Roosevelt Carrier Group was moved off of Yemen,
the message from Obama seemed to be:
"What we've said to them is if there are weapons delivered to factions within Yemen that could threaten navigation, that's a problem," Obama said in the interview, a clip of which aired on NBC Nightly News.


When asked about this Marie Harf said (from Fox News):
Marie Harf insisted Tuesday that the U.S. ships were "only" there to "ensure the shipping lanes remain open and safe" -- and "not to do anything in terms of those Iranian ships." She blasted "misreporting" that asserted U.S. ships were prepared to intercept Iranian vessels. "That is blatantly untrue -- so this discreet movement of U.S. assets is for a discreet purpose," Harf said.   
The purpose is perplexing to her.

What's really clear is that the Roosevelt is no longer supporting efforts against ISIS while the government figures out why it's there, and let's the rest of the world know.

  1. Obama has the greatest military the world has ever known under his command. He just doesn't have a clue as to how to use it.

    We need another Commander in Chief, as soon as possible. One that understands that we live in a dangerous world.

      Focused on Fundamentally Transforming America.
      Into "what" is the question.
