Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has ordered an aircraft carrierthe USS George H.W. Bushto move from the northern Arabian Sea to the Persian Gulf as President Barack Obama considers possible military options for Iraq.
Hagels press secretary, Rear Adm. John Kirby, says the order will give the president added flexibility if military action is required to protect American lives, citizens and interests in Iraq.

gives Obama “Flexibility”
Barry hates Brown people!!!!!!
Okay, Chuck Hagel, are you saying that YOU have ordered this vessel into deployment, or did your Boss tell you to do it? We just played that finger pointing game last week about the Taliban Five, yet another (not so) bright idea from this Administration.
It is a sad, sad world. President Obama does not believe in the Promise of Hashtag.
Ordering an aircraft carrier to deploy seems to have become a publicity stunt of no ultimate consequence whatsoever for those within the Washington Bubble - I assume everyone from the Iranians to the Russians to Al Qaeda have learned that by now.
If there are still Christians or white people there, an order to attack isn’t off the table.
But what is the likelihood this CinC will issue that order?
P.S. I like your taunting name tag; have long argued that not voting for the lesser of two evils does nothing more than support the greater evil. It seems so obvious.
Uh...is Hagel the C-in-C now?
He is the final decision maker, when things are going sideways and not according to the Obama narrative. Hagel is a ready made bus speed bump.
It must be killing the lefties in Obamas admin that they have to send the carrier “Bush”
If they want get real serious send USS Ronald Reagan there
“...aircraft carrierthe USS George H.W. Bushto move...”
=> It’s Bush’s fault!
They considered sending the USS Hussein Obama, but how intimidating is a pair of inflatable arm swimmies made out of recycled plastic.
This is like hearing that Otis has ordered Barney to deputize Floyd.
Well, on the flip side they could have the USS Carter “nuke” the hell out of them.
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has ordered an aircraft carrier to Persian gulf ,because Obama wants NOTHING TO DO WITH IT
Choices, choices - which one to send! /S
They certainly had intelligence that this was going down....and they still released those damn five terrorists.
Flexibility to draw red lines of inaction.
