Who knows who they were spying on when they landed in that murky pond.

Let's see, now. The Saudis are staunch US allies but they are also major sponsors of Al Quaeda and ISIS ( and by proxy, the Taliban) The bad old Persians also happen to be bitter, avowed enemies of all of our enemies. Sh1t, maybe it was a combined Iranian-US Op and someone caught them at it, hence the theatre!

Anybody else have a theory of the inner workings of the Middle East?

Free Beacon;
The classified details behind Iran's treatment of several U.S. sailors who were captured by the Islamic Republic during a tense standoff earlier this year are likely to shock the nation, according to one member of the House Armed Services Committee, who disclosed to the Washington Free Beacon that these details are currently being withheld by the Obama administration.


Rep. Randy Forbes (R., Va.) told the Free Beacon in an interview that the Obama administration is still keeping details of the maritime incident under wraps. It could be a year or longer before the American public receives a full accounting of the incident, in which several U.S. sailors were abducted at gunpoint by the Iranian military.
