Iran Just Released New Embarrassing Footage Of Captured U.S. Sailors
In January, the Islamic Republic of Iran detained 10 U.S. Navy servicemen after their transport boats reportedly drifted into Iranian waters. One of the boats apparently suffered mechanical failure. The soldiers were disarmed and detained, and one naval servicewoman was made to cover her head according to Iranian laws and customs.
Iranian media immediately released video of one serviceman apologizing for the incident, a move some said was meant to embarrass U.S. military forces in the region. A retired Navy captain also criticized Iran’s use of the videos as an attempt to publicly embarrass America.
Now, Iran has just released more video footage. In the latest video release, soldiers are shown apparently crying during their detention, furthering criticism that Iran is using the footage to demonstrate their own navy’s power over the U.S. Navy.
