The Iranian regime detained 10 United States sailors to publicly embarrass America, according to retired Navy Capt. Chuck Nash.
Nine men and one woman were detained by Iranian officials for 16 hours after they drifted into Iranian waters.
Nash, now a Fox News military analyst, said in a Thursday interview on Fox’s American Newsroom the footage of a sailor apologizing was a deliberate attempt to show U.S. weakness. Nash said he believes Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei made the decision to release the footage because the group detaining the sailors was the Iranian Republican Guard Navy, which reports directly to Khamenei.
“This was done intentionally and it was done to further embarrass the United States” Nash said. “And to send the clear message to the Gulf Arabs: If the Americans won’t stand up for themselves, they’re certainly not going to stand up for you. We’re the big dog now.”
