Quick HIt: USS Carl Vinson Headed Towards Korean Peninsula? "NO"

Do you recall this: Trump on North Korea's Kim Jong Un: He's doing the wrong thing

The New York Times
WASHINGTON — As worries deepened last week about whether North Korea would conduct a missile test, the White House declared that ordering an American aircraft carrier into the Sea of Japan would send a powerful deterrent signal and give President Trump more options in responding to the North’s provocative behavior.
The problem was, the carrier, the Carl Vinson, and the four other warships in its strike force were at that very moment sailing in the opposite direction, to take part in joint exercises with the Australian Navy in the Indian Ocean, 3,500 miles southwest of the Korean Peninsula.

If the Times story is accurate, think of the implications. Is the Trump administration so inclined towards lies and misinformation they would attempt to bullshit the world? What message does such unprofessional and readily discernible military posturing "behavior: send to US adversaries and allies? If the USS Carl Vinson wasn't headed towards the Korean Peninsula, is it possible Russia wouldn't know differently (and share such with Kim Jong Un)? How could high ranking military leaders follow Trump into the world of reality TV?

If the story is true, we have again fallen for another case of Trumpism.
