Two strike groups will be near The Straight…. the USS Abraham Lincoln and the USS Carl Vinson. “It is “not unusual to have two carriers in the CENTCOM theater at the same time,” a second U.S. military official said.

Another official said there had been two carriers in the Gulf region at least twice in the past 18 months.”

It may not be “unusual”, but the timing is, at the least, interesting.
