Politico’s Defense Editor Dave Brown first drew attention to the error by sharing Harris’s post on Twitter and a photo of a Kaan 33 Class boat belonging to the Turkish Coast Guard, side by side. Brown wrote, “This is the Turkish Coast Guard”.

Looking at the photo shared by Harris, it is seen that the ‘Coast Guard’ text and the number on the nose of the boat have been erased.

Brown pointed out that the conservative Fox News channel also shared the news of the founding anniversary of the US Coast Guard with the same erroneous image.
