    Disgusting they humiliated our Military and they had free reign to do it. This after Biden went on TV and said there would be no apology from us to Iran. This with Kerry saying what a wonderful Deal we have that brought about such a peaceful ending to a mistake on the seas.

    Then Boom Iran hit Americans with the video. O did not even mention it in his State of the Union, he is a Traitor and we all know it and we know he backs everything our enemies do around the world.

    Trust me the American people are awake.
