Obama doesn't want to piss off the Iranians by publicly showing his cards (blocking the shipments), but I think it is a mistake.  His efforts to juggle - deter arms shipments while keeping his negotiations with Iran on track - probably would better be handled from a hardliner strategy... publicly blocking the shipments.

Jimmy Carter's namby pamby negotiations never got our hostages released by Iran.  They probably suspected Ronald Reagan wasn't going to put up with that crap for long, so they let the hostages go.

TEHRAN,Iran —Iran's navy said Tuesday it will protect an aid ship traveling to Yemen where a five-day humanitarian cease-fire is set to begin between a Saudi-led coalition and Shiite rebels and their allies. The U.S. quickly warned against the move,which comes amid heightened tensions after the Islamic Republic seized a cargo ship in recent weeks.

The state-run IRNA news agency quoted Iranian Admiral Hossein Azad as saying that the 34th naval group "is present in the Gulf of Aden and Bab al-Mandab strait and has been given the specific mission of protecting the humanitarian aid ship." That naval group includes the destroyer Alborz and logistic ship Bushehr,which are on a 90-day anti-piracy assignment in the region.

Iranian state television reported Tuesday that the ship,the Iran Shahed,carried food,medicine,tents and blankets,as well as reporters,rescue workers and peace activists. It said the ship is expected to arrive at Yemen's port city of Hodeida next week.

In Washington,U.S. Army Col. Steve Warren said the U.S. is monitoring the cargo ship and he warned that it would not be helpful if Iran is "planning some sort of stunt." He said using Iranian warships to accompany the ship is not necessary and Iran should just send the cargo vessel to Djibouti,where humanitarian efforts for Yemen are being coordinated.

There some six U.S. warships already in the region around Yemen, including in the Gulf of Aden.

The U.S. and other Western countries have accused Iran of militarily backing the Yemeni rebels,known as Houthis. Both the rebels and the Islamic Republic deny that.

The newly recovered e-mails do not corroborate then Sec of State Clinton's testimony and/or statements about the Benghazi attack....But, once again this will be FOX News making a story where there is no story....

But, but, but - Billary whined that her YES vote was a mistake......so yes, in the eyes of liberal hypocrites she is now absolved of all responsibility - just like all the rest of her many, um, issues.

Even though a CIA honcho admitted the intel they provided was flawed, even though many of our allies arrived at the same conclusions Bush presented as justification, even though many Democrats voted to invade - no Bush will never be absolved because he is a Republican.
