How intimidating do you think America looks to Iran right now? This is how much Obama has humiliated us. Scroll down for photos.
Dramatic footage has emerged of the 10 American sailors accused of ‘snooping’ on Iran surrendering to the revolutionary guard and being taken into custody 16 hours before they released.
Video which aired on the Islamic republic’s state television shows the U.S Navy personnel kneeling with their hands behind their heads, as armed coast guard officials surround them.
They remained motionless as they waited to be taken onto Farsi Island – an area of land in the Persian Gulf shut off to the public because of supposedly secret activities carried out by the government.
The tense diplomatic standoff took place just days before the terms of the nuclear deal are set to be activated – meaning Iran is set to received $billion in funds that were restricted by the U.S. under the sanctions.
After they were escorted off the boats, the nine men and one woman were interrogated for hours by the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution (IRGC) before they were released.
Wearing combat fatigues and no shoes, the sailors were then pictured sitting on a carpet inside a bare room. They shared plates of food and bottles of water as they chatted to Iranian officials.
A female sailor was also seen wearing a makeshift veil she was given by the captors to cover her head. One sailor, said to be a U.S. commander, was recorded making an apology to the Iranian forces – insisting they strayed into their territory by mistake – and said their behavior towards them was ‘fantastic’.
The soldier was later seen smiling while drinking from a juice box.
