Pathetic: U.S. ‘Apologizes’ to Iran in Return for Release of Navy Sailors; Female Forced to Wear Hijab

Thanks, guys, now here’s $150 billion, just make sure you don’t nuke us, OK?

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard released 10 U.S. Navy sailors who were detained after two small Riverine boats crossed into Iranian territorial waters, the Pentagon confirmed Wednesday.

A statement said that the sailors and the boats left the Iranian naval base where they had been held shortly before 9 a.m. GMT (4 a.m. EST). The nine men and one woman were later transferred ashore by Navy aircraft, while the boats continued toward Bahrain, their intended destination. There was no indication the sailors had been harmed.

A U.S. official told Fox News that the sailors were initially taken to the guided-missile cruiser USS Anzio before flying to the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman for additional debriefing.

“The first concern is the safety and well being of the crew and then we will investigate the incident,” the official said. The Pentagon statement also promised the Navy would “investigate the circumstances that led to the Sailors’ presence in Iran.”

Officials are still uncertain of how Iranian forces managed to commandeer the two boats. The U.S. official told Fox News that a mechanical problem on at least one of the boats could not be ruled out, but could not explain how both boats were able to get underway in such a short time if one did have a propulsion issue, which would have caused it to stop running and drift into Iranian territorial waters.

Remarkably, administration mouthpieces are actually claiming the nuclear deal with Iran has helped create an atmosphere where we can now talk to these maniacs, who just took out sailors hostage!!!

Well, at least they treated the female sailor kindly:

Thanks, Obama! And thanks for this as well:

Groveling, it’s the new normal!

The humiliation is positively Carter-esque:

And the final nail in or credibility:

It’s actually quite revealing how Iran sounds just like Obama.

Iran’s army chief said on Wednesday the seizure of two U.S. navy boats and their 10 sailors should be a lesson to members the U.S. Congress trying to impose new sanctions on Tehran.

“This incident in the Persian Gulf, which probably will not be the American forces’ last mistake in the region, should be a lesson to troublemakers in the U.S. Congress,” Major General Hassan Firouzabadi, head of Iran’s armed forces, was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency.

Yay, diplomacy!
