WASHINGTON, Sept 1 (Reuters)- The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Nimitz and other ships in its strike group are heading west toward the Red Sea to help support a limited U.S. strike on Syria, if needed, defense officials said on Sunday.Does anyone even remember we're still fighting a war in Afghanistan? Or that soldiers have been in harm's way for the past five years and are dying every single day in that country?
Even Obama seems to have forgotten.
When was the last time anyone heard an update from this president or the liberal media about the progress or status of the war in Afghanistan?
We hear nothing but absolute silence.
The same silence we heard about Benghazi, the IRS, and the DOJ confiscating citizens' private information.
The Nimitz carrier strike group, which includes four destroyers and a cruiser, has no specific orders to move to the eastern Mediterranean at this point, but is moving west in the Arabian Sea so it can do so if asked. It was not immediately clear when the ships would enter the Red Sea, but they had not arrived by Sunday evening, said one official.
he Nimitz carrier group had been in the Indian Ocean, supporting U.S. operations in Afghanistan, but was due to sail east around Asia to return to its home port in Everett, Washington, after being relieved in recent days by another aircraft carrier, the USS Harry S. Truman....
