ice President Joe Biden told CBS New the U.S. did not apologize to Iran after the country released ten Navy sailors it had abducted on Tuesday night.
âWhen you have a problem with the boat, (do) you apologize the boat had a problem? No,â he explained. âAnd there was no looking for any apology. This was just standard nautical practice.â
The vice president explained that the âthe Iranians picked up both boats â as we have picked up Iranian boats that needed to be rescued.â Iranian officials then ârealized they were there in distress and said they would release them, and released them â like ordinary nations would do.â
He added that situations like the capture of the two U.S. Navy boats were exactly âwhy itâs important to have channels openâ with the Middle East power. That sentiment was echoed by his Iranian counterpart, Javad Zarif, who tweeted Wednesday a message about the importance of diplomacy and ârespect.â

Notice anything about the crew?
If Reagan were president now and Twitter existed, he would not tweet anything...he’d view it as beneath the office.
There was at least one hispanic shown in earlier pictures.
Are they teaching surrender techniques in basic training now, or is it taught later? And do they bring in French experts to teach?
Yeh on their knees with hands on heads and disarmed. KMA Biden.
The pic of uniform shows Lt. Bars. Jump Wings. And what I take to be SPECOPS Badge? Unclear on that one.
I saw video this afternoon of the sailors apologizing. The Iranians really did it up with the sailors seated around a table of food and drink. Held a mic to their faces as they said how well they were being treated and apologized. Pure propaganda piece for Iran.
If there’d been something heavy close at hand, we wouldn’t have a tv right now.
We should have taken out the leadership of that pissant country on January 21, 1981.
“”around a table of food and drink””
They are uncivilized - they eat off the floor with their fingers.....no table - no chairs....
Can anyone explain why if they were being so helpful, the gal had to cover her head?
Joe Biden told CBS New the U.S. did not apologize to Iran
Joe Biden like a rock, only dumber.
Ya they surrendered without a fight to a fishing boat. What were they delivering to Iran from Obama
It isn't the same video I saw this afternoon but I found this one which has a brief bit of what I saw.
The reporter does say it isn't known if the sailor apologized under duress. He certainly doesn't look at ease to me.
That photo is such a disgrace... and it is a picture of what obama has done to our country. Military do not give up their weapons and do not give up their ‘ship’. So I wonder who gave the order to do so. It had to come from a high position, for all of these men to do so. To know obama micromanages every detail of our lives, was he notified? and did he give the order to surrender quietly?.. considering he was about to go in front of the world on TV... probably.
That ONE man, with the power our country held so dear and gave to this poor excuse of a man... look at what he has done with that power... and he’s not finished! The world is in turmoil, Europe is being overrun with terrorism, the rest of the world is being taken over, mile by mile, by isis... rapes, murders, terror ... all because this one man has taken that power and turned it against the people and let the hell on earth reign all over the world. It used to be contained by the fact we were feared and respected.. not any more... and look at what is going on.
One man, unchecked... one man, allowed to unleash his anger on the world... And Washington does not care... everyone I hear reporting on any of this ... they do not have a clue as to what is right and how to do it. If they are not hurting.. then it’s okay. One day, it may hit Washington....
Nothing about this whole thing has added up from the beginning. Every time we turn around we’re told something different.
This was a war crime. Not even debatable. OUTRAGEOUS! We are betrayed at the highest levels of government and all the GOP can talk about is how the GOPe response to the state of the union was used to to attack itself. What a travesty
