Pentagon orders are needed to execute Trump’s call for Navy to shoot at harassing Iranian boats


Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON — Pentagon leaders must now develop orders for troops that match President Donald Trump's tweet instructing the Navy to shoot at harassing Iranian ships, Gen. John Hyten, the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Wednesday.

“The president made a clear statement. I think the Iranians understand that, I think the American people understand that. Now, we as the military have to apply that clear direction from the commander in chief into lawful orders that we execute,” the Air Force general said during a Pentagon news conference that he conducted with Deputy Defense Secretary David Norquist. https://www.stripes.com/news/middle-east/hyten-pentagon-orders-are-needed-to-execute-trump-s-call-for-navy-to-shoot-at-harassing-iranian-boats-1.627064
