Repairing America’s Global Standing

US Sailors Detained By Iran

A congressman claims the Obama administration is purposely suppressing the details of Iran’s capture of American sailors, suggesting the sailors were treated more harshly than we were led to believe.

Rep. Randy Forbes (R., Va.) told the Free Beacon the Obama administration is still keeping details of the maritime incident under wraps. It could be a year or longer before the American public receives a full accounting of the incident, in which several U.S. sailors were abducted at gunpoint by the Iranian military.

Forbes suggested that Iran’s treatment of the U.S. sailors—which included filming them crying and forcing them to apologize at gunpoint—may have been much worse than what has been publicly reported.

Forbes is pushing a new measure that would increase sanctions on Tehran for its treatment of the U.S. sailors in order to hold Iran accountable for its aggressive behavior. (H/TAOSHQ)

The Navy has already sacked the sailors’ commander, so covering up the details is not a surprising move. I do find it interesting Obama wanted the Iran nuclear deal so badly, he not only caved on every issue, but – possibly – allowed Iran to harm our captured sailors.

  1. The man feels no allegiance for this country. All he cares about is his legacy. I don’t think he will be truly happy until he brings this country to it’s knees in front of the rest of the world.

  2. Any bets about how Trump would have handled this? The entire Iran UN contingent would have been bubble wrapped, placed in a container and shipped back to Tehran. All assets frozen, total embargo, and sanctions against anyone doing business with them. And their ruling class would never have been able to hide from the cruise missiles searching for their rectal apertures.
