Training mission... drifted into Iranian waters.
Yup, sounds like a bad movie plot.
Who writes this stuff?
No, I'm not doubting that Iran has two US Navy boats, I'm talking about the cover story as to why they were there in the first place.

Agreed, but to your second point, it wouldn't appear they were under High Seas rule (i.e. in International Waters) at the time the incident occurred.
Dressed in camouflage uniforms, the sailors can be seen kneeling on the deck of the patrol boat, with hands on their heads.
They are then shown seated in a room, being given tea, bottled water and food by their Iranian hosts.
