The Obama administration got blindsided Wednesday when Iran released a video of showing one of 10 captured sailors apologizing to his captors for the two Navy vessels that strayed into Iranian waters â just hours after Vice President Joe Biden had insisted that thereâd been no apology.
âIt was a mistake, that was our fault, and we apologize for our mistake,â a young sailor tells a camera.

Anyone else concerned these are our 'elite' soldiers? Apologizing on Iranian TV within hours of being captured.
What happened to "name, rank, serial number" and shut up. Doesn't look like he's been tortured.
Are the ranks of Marines now filled with PC surrender monkey cowards?
Democrats are pathological liars in general, and the current crop is the most concentrated sludge at the bottom of the cesspool.
Our leadership is a pack of liars and I hope to see them all jailed someday.
When you are led by one, why would you fight?
This sailor just got off the phone with Kerry is my guess
just got off the phone with Kerry is my guess
Hope they wiped off the receiver.
Congress should interrogate this commander under oath. Perhaps the truth might come out. This is NOT what it appears to be. This was a thoroughly planned operation by the grand saboteurs at Team Zero to embarrass the U.S. and put it in its place.
Sorry but a sailor is NOT A MARINE nor in the ranks of any Devil Dog.
>>When you are led by one, why would you fight?
I agree. Fighting and dying for a nation that elected Obama TWICE is a waste. Get your training. Get your GI Bill. Get out at the end of the enlistment.
“Are the ranks of Marines now filled with PC surrender monkey cowards? “
Those aren’t Marines.
They’re probably not even real U.S. sailors.
I saw the pics and some of those boys are chubby with facial hair and definitely not Marines.
We rolled over far too easily; this seems like it was almost planned as another humiliation of the US with the connivance of some part of the chain of command. Maybe the ROEs now say don’t fight and do whatever the Obama beloved Iranians tell you to do.
This incident makes i9t all even steven...They'll get all their money on time....and a kiss on both cheeks.
Looking sharp America.
I don't buy it. The Left is media-savvy enough to know that timing is extremely important.
You got that right. I’m no hero but I’ve had a few black eyes and other injuries from sports. Those A holes would have at least had to give me a black eye before I ate a bite of their BS food just so I could face my dad when I got home.
Did everybody notice they had the woman sitting in a corner like she wasn’t being allowed to eat with the crew? None of them should have eaten a bite unless she was eating too. It really ticked me off to see these people smiling and eating and not a mark on any of them.
For crying out loud, isn’t the Navy training sailors how to behave in the face of the enemy or when in captivity anymore???
If this is accurate, he damn well be standing tall before the man.
