Third Carrier Group?

Via Think Progress is this from Newsweek

At least one former White House official contends that some Bush advisers secretly want an excuse to attack Iran.
“They intend to be as provocative as possible and make the Iranians do
something [America] would be forced to retaliate for,” says Hillary
Mann, the administration’s former National Security Council director
for Iran and Persian Gulf Affairs. …

A second Navy carrier group is steaming toward the Persian
Gulf, and NEWSWEEK has learned that a third carrier will likely follow.

Here is some background on the carrier groups and Here is a Guardian article on US preparations for an air strike against Iran.
