Classified Country

Because it sounds so cool, SoE will probably refer to Jordan only as "a classified Middle Eastern country west of Saudi Arabia" from now on. William M. Arkin reports:
U.S. plans new bases in the Middle East

The U.S. military has developed a ten-year plan for "deep storage" of munitions and equipment in at least six countries in the Middle East and Central Asia to prepare for regional war contingencies.

The plans, revealed in March 2006 contracting documents, call for continued storage in Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, and Oman, as well as the establishment of two new storage hubs, one in a classified Middle Eastern country "west" of Saudi Arabia ("Site 23") and the other in a yet to be decided "central Asian state."
Despite impressive physical facilities in Saudi Arabia, freedom of action from Saudi bases has always been a sticking point between the U.S. and the Saudis.
