Reading between the lines and the lies, you can tell that Obama Inc's concern about the abduction and imprisonment of American sailors was that it would ruin the State of the Union.
First, we're told that the events themselves were supposed to be kept quiet. "The drama in the Gulf, which the U.S. government had initially hoped to keep under wraps, became public knowledge just hours before President Barack Obama was due to give his annual State of the Union address in Congress."
Kerry pleaded with Iran for their release, again focusing on the narrative angle. "Appealing for the sailors' quick release, Kerry told Zarif: "We can make this into what will be a good story for both of us," according to a senior State Department official. He repeated that message in follow-up calls, the official said."
And that's how it happened.
Obama Inc. claims that it has "good relations" with Iran because the Shiite terror state took US hostages... but let them go. Iran got to humiliate America. That's what traitors like Kerry call win-win.
90 percent of the article and other similar articles like it is propaganda. But this much we can believe. Obama was worried mainly about keeping it quiet or telling a good story.
