Iran/USA: 10 U.S. Army Sailors And Their Boats In Iranian Custody

BREAKING NEWS: 10 U.S sailors captured by Iranian revolutionary guards:

10 United States Navy sailors have been captured by Iran revolutionary forces. The sailors with their two boats encroached into Iranian waters and was chased by Iranian revolutionary forces, in an action movie-like scene, before they were captured and taken into custody.

The American new media CNN reporters viewed the situation as serious, but they White House, said “Certainly, everybody should be aware of the fact we have been in touch with the Iranians and they have assured us that our sailors are safe and that they’ll be allowed to continue their journey promptly,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told CNN’s Jake Tapper.

The sailors were on transit from Kuwait to Bahrain when the incident took place. Also, few weeks ago a small Iranian naval boat fired a rocket very close to USA aircraft carrier in the Persian gulf.

The timing is also interesting because the United States president Barrack Obama were few hours away to have his final State Of The Union address to both houses, the congress and the house of representatives. The White House was aware of the incident and it was not mentioned by the president in his SOTU (State Of The Union) address.
