A Navy investigation into how sailors ended up in Iranian custody has been completed and will recommend disciplinary action, senior military officials told NBC News. Ten U.S. sailors spent a night in Iranian custody in January after their two boats drifted into Tehran's territorial waters. The sailors were videotaped during their detention and footage of one sailor appeared to show him apologizing to his Iranian captors. Cmdr. Mike Kafka, a U.S. Navy spokesperson, confirmed that the 5-month investigation is complete and was "being referred to the appropriate commands for adjudication." Two senior military officials told NBC New the investigation shows that several things went wrong and several sailors made decisions that ultimately led to the embarrassing event. "It was a calamity of errors," one U.S. military official said. U.S. officials initially blamed a navigational error for the incident. The investigation recommends that the Naval Expeditionary Combat Command and U.S. forces Central Command in Bahrain consider several sailors — some assigned on the boats involved and others in their chain of command — for potential disciplinary measures, the senior military officials told NBC News. Disciplinary action for US NAVY personnel who made a navigational error, and when their boat broke down? What in the actual fu*k!! Let us all guess America that the Obama administration has something to do with the disciplining of US NAVY sailors who couldn't help what happened when they went out to sea that day. For gods sake their being disciplined because their boat broke down and strayed into international waters. Wait a minute... I thought the NAVY was all about freedom of the seas? As a NAVY veteran I just can't even fathom this injustice.
