UPDATE 6/21, 6:30 a.m. As late as 7 p.m. EST last night the military was prepared, on the president’s orders, to launch limited, retaliatory strikes against a handful of Iranian assets, but the White House later called for the military to stand down. According to news reports quoting multiple administration officials Friday morning, planes were already in air and ships positioned, but no missiles had yet been fired when the word came to call of the strikes.
