Iraq: Iran Attack Rumours

Blogger and journalist Christopher Allbritton, who covers Iraq, disputes newspaper reports that the US will attack Iran on Friday. “Don’t believe it. I’m due to be on board the USS Stennis, believed to be one of the ships taking part in this attack, next week — and it won’t even be in the Persian Gulf. I’m not inclined to believe the US military would be taking reporters on boat rides in the Indian Ocean, for example, just a few days after the start of a new war,” he writes.
