The capture and release of 10 American sailors has many people wondering exactly what happened.
President Obama failed to address the capture of the sailors, which occurred the day of his final State Of The Union Address and we might have just figured out why.
An astonishing revelation brought to us by Defense Secretary Ashton Carter indicates that the Obama administration asked for help from the Iranian military in rescuing the sailors who were lost at sea after their vessel experienced mechanical trouble.
This information is courtesy of Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) during an interview on The Blaze’s “Dana” after it was made known that our soldiers were being held.
Watch the clip below:
“When our Navy ships have problems, we don’t call Iran. We call the rest of the Navy. We can call the Air Force, the Army, the Marines, Coast Guard. We don’t call Iran,” Gohmert said.
He also took a not-so-subtle shot at Kerry:
“But I guess, you know, if you have relatives that have weddings that involve the people that are in charge in Iran, well, maybe you feel that comfortable,” Gohmert said. “But you know, Dana, there are secrets on every military ship we have … that has no business being in the hands of the Iranians.”
Do you think it’s appropriate that the Obama administration contacted the Iranians to rescue our sailors, or should we have called on the American military? Let us know in the comments!
