Reporting tonight they were 50 miles off course.No matter what the truth is...you're always here to parrot the faux news.
Perhaps you ought to double check before making yourself look like a fool.
The two U.S. Navy boats seized by Iran with 10 sailors on board were within three miles
of Iran's Farsi Island when the Iranians took them, according to a U.S. defense official directly familiar with the latest information about the incident.
The boats had drifted off course, but one was also suffering engine trouble, making it impossible for the Americans to rapidly back off and return to international waters when they were approached by armed Iranian naval boats, the official said.
The U.S. Navy has initial statements from the sailors but is now conducting a full debrief, so additional information may come to light, the official said.http://www.cnn.com/2016/01/14/politics/navy-boats-iran-waters/
The Navy and the Pentagon have said that the two boats were en route from Kuwait to Bahrain, headquarters of the Navy's Fifth Fleet, when they were intercepted by Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps vessels.
The most direct route likely would have kept the two boats close to the western coastline of the Persian Gulf but the two boats were seized within the three-mile territorial limit of Iran's heavily-guarded Farsi Island in the middle of the Gulf.
It was unclear whether engine trouble aboard one of the boats may have contributed to the navigation error.
"They did not report this navigational error at the time" to commanders, Carter said. "It may be that they were trying to sort it out at the time they encountered the Iranian boats and discovered they were inside of the territorial waters of Iran."http://www.military.com/daily-news/2016/01/15/carter-says-navigation-error-led-to-irans-seizure-navy-boats.html
