U.S. pulls staff from Iraq, says Iran gave 'blessing' for tanker attacks

A U.S. government source said American security experts believe Iran gave its “blessing” to tanker attacks, which hit two Saudi crude oil tankers, a UAE-flagged fuel bunker barge and a Norwegian-registered oil products tanker off Fujeirah near the Strait of Hormuz. The source said the United States believes Iran’s role was one of actively encouraging militants but indicated the United States does not now have evidence that Iranian personnel played any direct operational role. Iran’s Foreign Ministry has called the tanker attacks “worrisome and dreadful” and called for an investigation.
