U.S. Says Video Shows Iranian Boat Removing Mine

Video released by U.S. Central Command shows a patrol boat pulling up to the Kokuka Courageous, one of two ships attacked in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday. Personnel removed what American analysts believe was a limpet mine from the ship. A military spokesman said the patrol boat was an Islamic Revolutionary Guard vessel.
It is too bad the US did not have forces in place to capture the Iranian vessel and its crew as well as the material on the boat.   It is not clear what the US response to the attacks will be or that of the countries whose ships were attacked by the Iranians.
