I'm not sure what bothers me more: that this might be true, or that the only place to get the story is from the alternative media and the Iranians. One whistleblower site working on the story reports that an Iraqi journalist based in London has told them
"Some of the US forces that left the Ain al-Assad Air base in Iraq last Thursday, did not come back to the USA or its base in Germany, but were transferred to Jordan during the evening hours.”Furthermore, they add
Update 1: Today at 12:00 P.M. we contacted DOD Press Office via two voicemail messages and one e-mail asking for comment(s) on this story. As of 6:00 P.M. EST we have not heard back.
Update 2: Another journalist with a major mainstream media publication was told by his editors that there would be no coverage or follow up on these developments.
Maybe it isn't what it looks like. But it sure looks like the media have agreed what to NOT tell the American people. Again.
Keep your eyes open.
