IRAN – UNITED STATES - Iran releases US sailors, forestalling a diplomatic crisis [AN]


Iranian authorities released ten US sailors whose boats had drifted into Iranian waters due to mechanical problems. Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, who described the sailors as Marines, confirmed their release following their apology. Back in the US, republican presidential hopefuls use the incident to heap scorn on Obama’s “weakness”.



I am thankful for this!
