    Post Drew Its Link

    online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390443507204578020672751302456.html

    "the U.S. drew its most explicit link between al Qaeda havens in such places and the recent attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya."


    In "its most explicit link....", who does "its" refer to? This clause seems to suggest that the U.S. is part of that link, when it is al Qaeda havens and the recent attack that are being linked. Could it be poorly written?

    Yes, it's referring to the U.S. I don't think it's poorly written.

    It's saying the link belongs to the U.S.
