It appears Iran is not done capitalizing on its unlawful detention last month of ten of our U.S. Sailors. While our
fearless feckless leadership thanked Iran for its gracious handling of our Sailors, it in turn released humiliating photos of the Sailors on their knees and video with their lieutenant apologizing to the Iranians, even applauding the “fantastic” behavior and thanking them for their “hospitality.”
And what did we do in response to this outrage? Well, of course, President Obama rewarded Iran by lifting sanctions and opening the floodgates for Iran to further increase its strength as a global power.
Now, Iran has just released new photos of our detained Sailors. The new photos may be the most sickening yet.
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 captured the 10 U.S. sailors earlier this year after they drifted into Iranian territorial waters.
The U.S. military disclosed after the incident that the sailors were held at gunpoint and that Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps removed SIM cards and other technology from them.
While it makes one sick to see the photos — and to share them with y’all — they are emblematic of the weakness the U.S. has shown and the degradation of our armed forces under this president. And reinforce the importance of choosing a strong and skillful leader to replace Obama as commander in chief come 2017.
