Huh? Pentagon Denies U.S. About to ‘Invade’ Egypt


Obama is such a wimp that he wouldn’t do anything with our military.

ABC’s Jon Williams (@WilliamsJon) and Molly Hunter (@MollyMHunter) report:

The Pentagon and U.S. Embassy in Cairo issued surprising denials today after reports in the Egyptian press said that a U.S. task force in the Red Sea was about to “invade Egypt.”

Earlier this week, two U.S. ships led by USS Kearsarge, an amphibious assault ship, and the USS San Antonio, a transport platform, carrying the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit moved into the northern Red Sea. Last month, along with the USS Carter Hall, which has since left the Red Sea, the 2,200-strong force had been part of Operation Eager Lion, training with Jordanian Forces.

Pentagon Press Secretary George Little took to Twitter today to deny reports that the Navy’s presence meant an imminent U.S. invasion.
