WATCH: Americans Outraged Over Iran Videos of U.S. Sailors
January 14, 2016
Some Americans are outraged over Iran videos of U.S. sailors kneeling with their hands clasped behind their heads and a U.S. service member speaking to a questioner, admitting wrongdoing and apologizing.
Not only do the videos raise questions about whether the country’s hard-line military force, the Revolutionary Guard, mistreated the Americans or whether Iran violated international law by using them for propaganda purposes.
According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, "he Geneva Conventions, which govern military conflicts, ban the practice of parading prisoners for purposes of “insults” and propaganda. The State Department said Wednesday afternoon that U.S. officials were looking into the videos and would respond if the U.S. determined that the sailors were treated inappropriately."
