Iranians Kidnap U.S. Sailors

I think it is safe to say that the Iranians have kidnapped 10 U.S. Navy sailors.
From Fox News:
Ten U.S. Navy sailors were detained on Tuesday by Iranian Revolutionary Guard forces when one of their boats apparently became disabled in the Persian Gulf.
A senior defense official tells Fox News that there is no timeline for the sailors' release but that it would not be before daybreak.
Pentagon officials said the incident occurred near Farsi Island in the Gulf. They said one of their two small boats had mechanical trouble, causing one or both to run aground. The sailors were then picked up by Iran and taken to the island. But it is unclear where they are now.
The boats were moving between Kuwait and Bahrain at the time, and the Pentagon briefly lost contact with the crews.
A senior Obama administration official told Fox News that Iranian authorities have assured the United States of the sailors' “safety and well-being” and said they “will promptly be allowed to continue their journey.”
Well, it's been more than a few hours and we don't when exactly when the sailors are getting out.
Plus, both boats broke down at the same time?  Highly doubtful, so what really happened?
And do you really think this would have happened under Reagan or Bush 41?  Highly doubtful, but under Obama, the Iranians just laugh at him and through him, they laugh at the United States.
Just another disgraceful event in a long line of disgraceful events in Obama's presidency.

  1. Hahaha.... Okay Dan.. Your blog has really gone downhill with mindless political spew. I'm not impressed with the Obama administration myself, but you are just downright ignorant. And before you tell me to read elsewhere, don't worry, I and most of your readership already have. We can already read this quality (or lack thereof,) of writing in any comment section.
