6/14/19 Jason Ditz on the Gulf of Oman Tanker Attacks

Fight Censorship, Share This Post!

Antiwar.com news editor Jason Ditz discusses recent Japanese tanker attacks in the Gulf of Oman, which the Trump administration is claiming were perpetrated by Iran. Trump officials say they have solid evidence for this claim, but nothing has been released except for a grainy video supposedly showing Iranians interfering with a tanker after the attack. Ditz points out that the supposed motive for the attack makes little sense, since Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe is visiting Iran right now. It seems more likely that someone might have staged such an attack in order to sabotage the negotiations.
