Aircraft carrier group wasn't near Korean peninsula
20 April 2017, 09:26 | Jan Cross
That actually wasn't the case - despite implications from the Trump administration, the US didn't have an aircraft carrier strike group near North Korea last weekend.
In an interview with Fox Business Network's Maria Bartiromo last week regarding North Korea, Trump said, "We are sending an armada, very powerful".
"Third Fleet ships operate forward with a goal: to safeguard US interests in the Western Pacific.", Benham said.
"The United States of America will always seek peace but under President Trump, the shield stands guard and the sword stands ready", Pence told 2,500 sailors wearing blue fatigues and Naval baseball caps on a sunny, windy morning aboard the carrier at the U.S. Yokosuka naval base in Tokyo Bay.
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer insisted Wednesday that President Donald Trump didn't mislead or misspeak when he indicated last week that an "armada" was steaming toward North Korea in a show of US military might. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment. On Monday, Pacific Fleet spokesman Cdr.
The New York Times reported, citing unnamed officials, that there had been "a glitch-ridden sequence of events, from a premature announcement of the deployment by the military's Pacific Command to an erroneous explanation by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis - all of which perpetuated the false narrative that an American armada was racing toward the waters off North Korea".
At the time of the strike group's deployment, many media outlets said the ships were steaming toward North Korea, when in fact they had temporarily headed in the opposite direction.
Officers responding to shooting injured in crash
The shooting may have happened on the expressway, which falls under the jurisdiction of Illinois State Police. Guglielmi said one officer was transported in serious condition and another was taken in good condition.
Was it all a misunderstanding, or deliberate obfuscation?
The move was apparently made over fears North Korea would carry out a sixth nuclear test.
"At the peak of the standoff, psychological warfare is very important", he said.
North Korea apparently wasted a lot of vitriol last week condemning the show of force off the peninsula by the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson, which was thousands of miles away in the Indian Ocean. But - and this is the key - there was a narrative out there that a US aircraft carrier was headed into a very significant and conspicuous part of the western Pacific Ocean at a very key and tense time.
That led many to believe that the group would be heading directly to Korea from Singapore and could have been on standby in waters near Korea around Saturday.
Joel Wit, a co-founder of the 38 North programme of the US-Korea Institute at Johns Hopkins University, said to AP: "If you are going to threaten the North Koreans, you better make sure your threat is credible".
In any case, the carrier strike force may indeed be finally heading north now.
