Iran Shames American Sailor on TV

Obama’s Iran policy is a disgrace and the Iranians are rubbing our noses in it.

(CNN)A video aired Wednesday by Iranian state television shows an American sailor apologizing for entering Iranian waters, an embarrassing development for a U.S. administration trying to paint the service members’ quick release as a diplomatic victory.



It is not clear from the video — which shows the lone female sailor wearing a head covering in accordance with Islamic tradition — that the sailor was speaking voluntarily, and U.S. officials have not yet said under what circumstances the apology was delivered. A spokesman for Secretary of State John Kerry has made it clear he has not apologized to Iran.

    We need to move on.

    Hardliners in Iran were going to play politics
    With this but we got our folks back in a day .

    Move on?

    In others words: let the bully push us around?

    You don’t tolerate this in school, why do you tolerate it on world stage?

    Cowards vote for cowards to lead them on a cowardly path. America has been humiliated by bold regime.

    Terry ,
    If you ever saw me in a fight ( without a gun) , you would reconsider your statement about cowardice

    Bluster gets us nowhere .

    TR told us to walk softly and carry a big stick

    I agree with that statement and also the advice of an old German friend of my Grandfather
    “Think Big
    Talk Big
    Lose Big “
