Diplomacy in Action: Iran Publishes Pictures of U.S. Sailors Crying

This is what Obama’s diplomacy looks like.

While the U.S. continues to support over $100 billion in international sanction relief for Iran, Iran is tweeting out pictures of captured U.S. sailors crying.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

Iran has released new photographs in which at least one of the recently captured U.S. sailors is crying, according to a series of the pictures posted on social media.

The pictures, as well as an accompanying video, were released by Iranian state-controlled news outlets and disseminated on Twitter by Iranian reporters early Wednesday.

The new photographs come on the heels of another set of pictures that showed Iranian military forces detaining the U.S. sailors at gun point and forcing them to place their hands upon their heads while kneeling on a ship.

Iran has also released footage of the U.S. sailors on their knees with their hands behind their heads from the initial capture. Since the incident, the Ayatollah has also rewarded the Iranian troops who captured the U.S. soldiers with medals of honor.

How did the Obama administration respond to the humiliating incident? Secretary of State John Kerry actually thanked Iran. Seriously.

“I’m appreciative for the quick and appropriate response of the Iranian authorities,” Kerry said on Jan. 13. “All indications suggest or tell us that our sailors were well taken care of, provided with blankets and food and assisted with their return to the fleet earlier today.”

Are you kidding me? The White House’s handling of relations with Iran has been a disgraceful international embarrassment.

We need to elect a leader in 2016 who actually has a backbone and values the interests of Americans more than the opinion of the largest state supporter of Islamic terrorism.
