NBC Reporting A Sailor Died Aboard USS Enterprise Friday June 8th, same day SUA reported the carrier was attacked.
I want to say again…this story IS NOT CONFIRMED.
Stand Up America has reported that:
“Friday, June 8, 2012 4:40 PM EST – Confidential sources within the military have confirmed to SUA that an unprovoked attack on the US Navy occurred this morning in the Straits of Hormuz. CVN-65, the USS Enterprise aircraft carrier and its group were reportedly attacked by no less then 4 sophisticated jets.
There is no confirmed word on damage or if there are any casualties, but SUA has learned that this attack may have caused injuries and possibly one death. We have contacted the military and are awaiting official response.”
We do know for sure that the 5th Fleet begun a build-up in that area since late May, and that Iranian and US forces have been engaging in “Drills and Exercises”. See link here.
Stand Up America goes on to say:
“SUA has been unable to secure further official military responses to date. Until further information is available, we stand by our original sources, however we are going to table the story at this time. We invite any official contributions pro and con. For the sake of our troops in the field and our national security, we hope this was a mis-interpretation of a naval event as reported by individuals in theater.”
I could not agree more!
