Since Tuesday's capture of U.S. Navy sailors by the Iranians, many questions have emerged that call into question the official story of events. Knowing the history of the Obama administration, including the Arab Spring and the infamous attack and cover-up Benghazi "incident," is it fair to assume that the White House is again deceiving the American public?
In light of yet another disgraceful situation that humiliated our country and military, below are some vital and important questions to ponder (forget political correctness!):
*Was this event coordinated to coincide with Obama's final State of the Union, which conspicuously did not mention the sailors in Iranian custody?
*Did John Kerry foresee that when the Iranians released the sailors it would provide good publicity for the Iranian nuclear deal that he negotiated with his Iranian family-related "buddy," Javad Zarif? Wasn't it, like John Kerry said, "a good story for both of us"?
*Did, as Rep. Louis Gohmert mentioned, the White House indicate to the Iranians where to find the two boats and apprehend ("help") the sailors? Did they have âmechanical problems,â or was it sophisticated jamming of their GPS?
*Were the boats truly navigating in Iranian-controlled waters? If so, how did all of their various navigational systems fail simultaneously?
*Is the entire chain-of-command, leading up to Defense Secretary Carter's insistence that the sailors were faced with a "navigational error" and/or mechanical failure, part of a Machiavellian cover-up?
*Could those ten sailors have been regarded as hostages and collateral for the frozen Iranian funds?
*Was the subsequent strangely-timed prisoner swap between the Obama administration and Iran a further diversion designed to change the attention and conversation away from the highly suspicious related facts of the Farsi Island incident?
At first, on the surface, this sordid affair is not unlike another major scandal of the Obama administration: Benghazi. Again, consider some important questions:
*Isn't one leading theory of what the terrorists were hoping to achieve in Benghazi the kidnapping of Ambassador Chris Stevens, so that he could later be swapped for the so-called Blind Sheikh, a well-known Egyptian terrorist?
*Wasn't the terrorist mob in Benghazi recorded screaming "Don't shoot! Morsi sent us!" as they approached the compound?
*Didn't Ansar al-Sharia, an Iranian-backed terror group, claim responsibility for the Benghazi attack?
*Wasn't then U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, trumpeting that a video caused of the attack?
*Didn't all these facts point to the manipulation performed by the genius puppet master, Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett?
Now that the Farsi Island incident is over and with the focus shifting to the latest prisoner swap, who will be the "schmuck" that throws their hands up and screams "What difference, at this point, does it make?"
Suuure, both ships having problems at the same time.
Questions we’ll never get straight answers to.
Tune in for next week's episode of "As America Swirls". Starting in Jan 2017 going to be a new pilot series on. Called Making America Great Again Apprentice. Whomever was responsible for these shenanigans may end up getting fired!
All reports from the Navy’s investigation will be classified so they can be withheld from prying eyes.
Now all US ships in the Gulf are free to be taken without a shot by any Iranian fishing boat that happens along.
Damn videos anyway - must’a forced Obie Wan’s hand and he had no choice but to order the surrender first US Naval ship without a shot being fired.
With a real president, Farsi Island would be uninhibited by now.
Uninhibited? No compunctions about doing anything at all? An island?
The story smells.
I’m not sure what to make of this, so you decide:
âI understand that (Secretary of State) John Kerry has indicated, look, when he got word, he and Ash Carter called the Iranians to help take care of our Navy guys, because they had some mechanical problems,â Gohmert said.
Iâll give you a second to pick your jaw off the floor.
âWhen our Navy ships have problems, we donât call Iran. We call the rest of the Navy. We can call the Air Force, the Army, the Marines, Coast Guard. We donât call Iran,â Gohmert said.
Is Mullah Obozo trying make Madam Secretary, Joan Kerry, look like a heroine re the release of our 10 sailors, the long time American prisoners of Iran and the stupid nuclear agreement with Iran.
Then, pull the plug on Hilliarily with the FBI investigation and make Kerry and Biden the new rat heroes/candidates for Potus and VP?
The commanding officer of these vessels surrendered his command to a foreign power.
The public doesn’t know why.
Until his reputation is cleared, he will be cast among those who surrendered without fighting.
If he was ordered to surrender by a superior officer, I cannot imagine he will not demand a courts martial.
Throw this out there: suppose that these boats were delivering SEALs who were reconnoitering Farsi Island for some reason? If during the insertion/extraction the Iranians discover the boats? Maybe they signal the SEAL team and surrender to buy time.
If I’m right then the Navy will say nothing to contradict the administration line on this.
To answer the posed question: YES.
Navy times says, ‘it was a navigation failure during an attempted refueling (3rd boat not Mentioned, navigation equipment was OK, unauthorized course change and lots of fuel (since they were less than 100 into their 300 mile voyage)’. The range of these boats is 370 Miles.
