#1 despite the linked CNN article saying that they don't have video or photograph of the incident. there's a video playing.

CNN is sounding like the Iranians, showing the video while denying that they have the video.

#4 You mean to tell me, that the ship was attacked, and somehow no security perimeter was set...and the iranians just decided " hell let's go back on the scene of the crime, in broad daylight and remove the rest of the explosives"... this jus assets in deep state are real crafty.

#11 It's too bad the SEALs can't pick an Iranian Harbor and put a few limpets on every single ship, timed to go off say at 7am. All at the same time. Of course, say nothing on the news to anyone.
