Iran releases 10 US Navy sailors [VIDEO]

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.

    And thank GOD that they are now free to come back to the safety of the protection of the United States of America.

    But being the sceptic that I am, I have to ask HOW did this happen? Did John Kerry wave a magic wand and achieve the unbelievable? Did the POTUS use his pen and his phone to put the fear of GOD and ALLAH into the Iranian Leaders so they complied???

    As much as I would like to believe that the release of our military members was due to good diplomacy or a change of heart on the part of the Mollahs, I have to ask the really hard question: “What did it COST us so that the POTUS could appear to be indeed a ‘tough guy’ – to save face before the world – when it comes to bringing our own home?” Of course, this kind of ‘awesome power’ does not always apply . . . did he fail to bring the same pressure to secure the freedom of the four other KNOWN prisoners that still REMAIN in Iran’s prisons and have been there for years?

    This monumental event did not happen without the price being very high . . . . how much money and how much assistance are we giving Iran on the international front so they can secure nuclear weapons with NO interference the us, the United Nations or other countries in that region of the world?

    It is a proven FACT that when the devil owns America’s soul lock, stock and barrel, we will ALL pay to dance . . . on a bed of coals that will NEVER go out! And how will our “easy way out” effect the little country known as Israel? Did our POTUS just sign Israel’s death warrant to once again secure his own precious legacy?

    In due time we will hear all about the gory details, and I have no doubt that we will have more than enough reason to justify our lack of confidence in our Commander-In-Chief and his henchmen.

    Glad they are back safe. Two boats suffer mechanical failure at the exact same time? Sounds like Iran had the chance to grab them and steal technology might be a plausible explanation.
