Pentagon orders aircraft carrier to Gulf in case Iraq military option needed

Published: 06.14.14, 20:00 / Israel News

WASHINGTON - US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered an aircraft carrier moved into the Gulf on Saturday, readying it in case Washington decides to pursue a military option after insurgents overwhelmed a string of Iraqi cities this week and threatened Baghdad.

 

"The order will provide the Commander-in-Chief additional flexibility should military options be required to protect American lives, citizens and interests in Iraq," the Pentagon said in a statement. (Reuters)
