First let me stipulate. I wasn't there so I don't know. Second, I'm going strictly off news reports. Third, big stuff is happening in the Strait of Hormuz so the Navy has been gearing up for weeks to fight in this area.
So the question.
Why wasn't this supply ship better covered? Where was Maritime Expeditionary Security Force? Where were the helo's and aircraft providing overwatch?
Our own smallboats providing protection?
Where was the protection?
