U.S. Says Video Shows Iranian Boat Removing Mine

Here is the article from The Dreaded New York Times U.S. Says Video Shows Iranian Boat Removing Mine.

Video released by U.S. Central Command shows a patrol boat pulling up to the Kokuka Courageous, one of two ships attacked in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday. Personnel removed what American analysts believe was a limpet mine from the ship. A military spokesman said the patrol boat was an Islamic Revolutionary Guard vessel.

Well, it actually shows the boat leaving the Kokuka Courageous. The Dreaded New York Times couldn’t even get that part right.

The Young Turks has the segment Trump Faking Tanker Evidence?.

Steemit has the article Japan Suggests Israel or U.S. Could be Behind Tanker Attack, as President of Company Calls Pentagon Report Fake.

President Trump recently cited a video released by the Pentagon as showing what the Pentagon says is a limpit underwater mine being removed by an Iranian special forces crew. But observers with military backgrounds say that the video does not show a limpit mine, which is large, heavy, and conical, but magnetic ladder rungs used for climbing the sides of ships.

I decided to do a little research on magnetic ladder rungs. I found a video showing some use of various kinds of equipment to board ships in the water.

A Facebook reader of my post led me to this item of a REBS Magnetic Climbing System. Here is the video from H. Henriksen Mek. Verksted.

Maybe if the USA Navy would release the complete video, it might show the Iranian boat rescuing the crew from the tanker, and then leaving without touching any mines.
