"False and without merit". Baseless even?
So we are told.
This is even more confusing now. DEBKAfile saying the U.S. Air Force vacating the Al-Udeid air base. Sputnik says otherwise. Devoted readers to the blog must read and arrive at their own conclusion.
"US Military Shoots Down Reports About Exiting Turkey, Qatar Bases"
"US Central Command and US Air Force Central Command have denied reports that the US was in the process of liquidating its two largest air bases in the Middle East at Incirlik, Turkey, and Al-Udeid, Qatar."
It is confusing. And I did say so myself. That air base vicinity Al-Udeid essential to the coalition in opposition to the Islamic State. ISIL now gone to the extent it is and no longer a substantial threat to the area the mission of Al-Udeid now in abeyance?
The noted blogger who went by the nom de plume of Spengler [David P. Goldman] rating the DEBKAfile totally unreliable under the best of circumstances. At least with regard to this matter we shall see.
