President Barack Obama has most recently come forward with his official account on the incident that recently played out with Iran. Unfortunately for him, it seems that there’s at least one detail that you’d have to be an idiot to believe – and Americans aren’t buying it.
The official release was made by the United States Central Command (CENTCOM), explaining that two American Riverine Command Boats – making their way from Kuwait to Bahrain – accidentally made their way into Iranian waters on account of “engine trouble.” According to the report, one of the ship’s engines broke down, and the other stopped along with it to assess the situation.
“This stop occurred in Iranian territorial waters, although it’s not clear the crew was aware of their exact location,” CENTCOM said in a press release. “While the [U.S. boats] were stopped and the crew was attempting to evaluate the mechanical issue, Iranian boats approached the vessels.”
At that time, the two sides traded words, and the American sailors were taken into custody at gunpoint. Now, I don’t know about you, but this whole scenario doesn’t make one bit of sense. If the sailors were traveling from Kuwait to Bahrain, they would have simply traveled down the west coast of the Persian Gulf.
I know we have Common Core and Geography is not being taught in schools anymore, but that shouldn’t have an affect on this information, should it? Who doesn’t understand Geography?
Of course, according to their account, one ship’s engines broke down and they “accidentally” drifted into Iranian waters (all the way on the east side of the gulf). I have a hard time believing this. As we all know, the American military has some of the best equipment in the world, and seeing how the boats were fitted with GPS, the sailors would have known exactly where they were.
And we all know what happened after that right?…..
So let me get this straight. Our guys are coasting along in very well armed and equipped boats. They are heading to Bahrain (south) but our boots end up in international waters near Iran. Their engines break down, even though they were really fine before that? They get captured.
It was probably more like. Democrats and Obama needed a distracting story. Obama needed to accomplish something other than giving Iran several billions of dollars for a bad Nuke Deal. So, he has our wonderful soldiers look like they were taken “hostage”. He tries to come off looking like a hero, even though the story makes NO sense at all to anyone with a chicken brain. On top of giving away billions of dollars to Iran, and negotiating a bad Nuke Deal, Obama then manages to exchange prisoners. Really? Who’s buying it?
Maybe Obama voters are, but NOT me.
