Report: Iran detains 7 American troops

TEHRAN, Iran — Iranian border guards detained seven U.S. troops as they tried to illegally enter the Islamic state, the semi-official Fars news agency reported on Sunday, without giving a source.

"Recently seven American troops were detained by Iranian guards in a southeastern province of the country," Fars said. "Two Iranians accompanying the troops were also arrested."

So was Obama attempting to create a revolution by sending a small force with the help of Iranian exiles to start some violence and claim it was all Iranians? Wonder what Obama will say about this? What will Obama do if this is all true and that there are indeed captured American troops by the Iranians?

Iran needs more bargaining chips.


Ahmadinejad talks with Syrian ally before journey to U.S.

Ahmadinejad is expected to arrive in the United States on Sunday, the same day as American hiker Sarah Shourd returns home after a 14-month detention in a Tehran jail.

Without further details we can only speculate. If they were Soldiers, they were most likely SOC forces using local assets. Those boys operate all along the border of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

There have been stories for years about American "soldiers" (the CIA) going into places like Iran to conduct some level of operations. The rumor was that the last election had several US agent provocateur's trying to foment unrest.

Looks like we got our hand caught in the cookie jar.

It would be a lot easier if we would just quit worrying about Iran and start worrying about America for awhile.

I agree but that would be too hard for them to do. They would rather file charges for Clemens lying than fix the economy.
