This is a volatile moment in the Gulf. To publish a story blaming Iran for the damaged tankers, based on one anonymous "official" who offers no hard evidence, is irresponsible.
Anonymously sourced story with absolutely zero supporting evidence for why US “assessment” is that Iran is behind tankers incident.
“American military team’s initial assessment is that Iranian or Iranian-backed proxies used explosives Sunday to blow large holes in four ships anchored off the coast of the UAE, a U.S. official said.”
