Listen: Iran, US And New York Times discussed on Todd Schnitt
"Am at certified Todd Schnitt. Let's move onto the Iran and missile issue. And again, New York Times they first reported this and we don't have any denial out of the ministration. So this, this could be real news. Listen folks, the bulk of it is real news. I get it. But you know clearly there's a. There's a bias a lot of the reporting today. So Cording to the New York Times. US intelligence officials have declassified this image of an Oronte and missile on. What's believed to be a Iranian Revolutionary Guard boat, a small vessel in the Persian Gulf. And this is obviously an effort to appease, US, lawmakers both sides, Democrats and Republicans to appease, our congress, people who want answers on where things are headed. And why have we ramped up jacked up the military response with whatever's happening with a run? They wanna know where we going with this. Where are we headed? Why are we headed in this direction?

Why we send four b fifty two bombers over to the airbase in cutter. Two US officials told the New York Times that the classified photo alone. Isn't exactly total validation of the threat. But according to those officials there are other photos that are still classified so. I don't think this is a wag the dog deal here. I mean, you've got a letter on no. We're not going to sit by icily and take their be as if they're getting into some posture, potentially threaten our troops in whether it's a rack, whether it's Syria or any of our infrastructure or partners or anything in the Persian Gulf as a whole. So according to the officials these other photos are still classified no word when those might be seen so photos that show Iran's Islamic revolutionary guard corps. Which the Trump administration, as you know, has declared a terrorist organization. A terrorist group. The photo show them loading missiles onto boats at several different Iran imports. What why do they need to put these missiles on a boat? Do"
