Back in January when President Obama was preparing for his final State of the Union address American sailors were captured and humiliated internationally by Iranian officials.
According to the Washington Post and interview with Navy investigators has indicated that President Obama gambled with the American sailors lives because he was almost one hundred percent positive that Iran wanted to make sure the nuclear arms deal went through.
The anonymous source said that Obama was most worried and concerned that the sailors would endanger the administration’s efforts to finish the Tehran nuclear deal.
The commander said,
“Obama would not want me to start a war over a mistake, over a misunderstanding,” according to the Navy’s 170-page report.
One sailor was found to have admitted and apologizing on camera for making a mistake. Which as the commander pointed out, were adverse statements that could have a deleterious effect on U.S. international affairs and interests. In doing so the sailor violated code of conduct standards.
The sailor had said,
“It was a mistake that was our fault and we apologize for our mistake. It was a misunderstanding. We did not mean to go into Iranian territorial water. The Iranian behavior was fantastic while we were here. We thank you very much for your hospitality and your assistance.”
U.S. vessels when caught were largely outnumbered and outgunned. The commander refused to engage in hostilities.
“I didn’t want to start a war with Iran. … I didn’t want to start a war that would get people killed. I guess this was a gamble on my part. … I made the gamble that they were not going to kill us. I made the gamble they were not going to parade us around like prisoners of war because they want this nuke deal to go through.”
However, the Iranians in purely childish mode did in fact parade them around like prisoners of war as photos of the U.S. Navy service members were sent to the international media outlets with the Americans on their knees with their hands behind their head. Of course a blatant attempt to humiliate Americans.
This Navy commander has done the right thing by letting the nation know what Obama’s true motives are. Which is sacrificing the safety of Americans to push his progressive liberal socialist agenda, which includes the nuclear deal.
