President Bush Calls for Iran to Release Captured British Soldiers
CAMP DAVID, Maryland — President George W. Bush on Saturday called for the release of 15 British sailors and marines being held by Iran, calling their capture by Tehran "inexcusable behavior."
"Iran must give back the hostages," Bush said. "They're innocent, they did nothing wrong, and they were summarily plucked out of waters."
The comments at a news conference with Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva were the first from Bush on the capture, as Washington has taken a low-key approach so far out of concern that more robust intervention might aggravate the situation and shake international resolve on Iran's nuclear program.

What I am disappointed with is Iran's blatent disregard for the Geneva Convention. These prisoners are being paraded around on TV, and the woman was forced to wear a rag on her head. Both violations of the Geneva Convention. (Oh wait...sorry...only the U.S. has to follow the Geneva Convention.)
