There was an earlier report (Reuters?) posted in FRs about a Yemen naval boat and a US destroyer involved in the seizure of the same stuff.
Any body care to speculate as to what’s going on and why NYT is not reporting US involvement ?
NYT downplayed the US Navy involvement by moving the mention of the ship involved to the end of the article.
NYT is supporting Barry’s “lead from behind” framing of news stories so as not to inflame tender Muslim sentiments so close to the “holy Places,” Mecca and Medina.
