Did Iran Just Steal Two Boats from the U.S. Navy?

(Before It's News)

An AP Writer has just tweeted the most bizarre statement from the Pentagon. The only reasonable way that I can interpret this is that Iran has somehow stolen two boats from our Navy, and while they intend to return the crew, they are keeping the boats:

A subsequent quote from the Pentagon made to a different AP reporter suggested that Iran has promised to return both the crew and vessels. What the Pentagon spokesman does not say is how the Iranians came to have possession of this boat, why they are in a position to be making this promise at all, and whether any damage has been done to the boats at all.

Doesn’t this seem like maybe a huge deal, if Iran used any force at all in taking these boats? I mean, a bigger deal than most actual wars are started over? If true, is there any way the United States – even under the lamest of ducks for a President – can allow this to occur without a military response of some sort against Iran? You know, our good allies in Iran who we were working on the giving them nuclear weapons thing with?

UPDATE: The tweets from the media continue to not be extremely helpful in shedding light on the exact nature of this situation, or what its cause might have been:


As of the writing of this update, that’s the most recent tweet from Reuters, with no clarification yet what “working to resolve” constitutes, or what they are asking for the Iranians to do, or (again, most importantly), how the Iranians got the boats in the first place.
