Secretary of State John Kerry blasted Iran’s actions last week after they captured American sailors and put them all over TV.

Kerry said he was “angry” and immediately confronted the Iranians over their inexcusable conduct.

According to The Hill:

“Secretary of State John Kerry said on Monday that he was outraged by the footage of U.S. sailors being apprehended at gunpoint by the Iranian military last week.

“I was very angry. I was very frustrated and angry that that was released. I raised it immediately with the Iranians,” he said during an interview on CNN.

“It was not put out by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or the government directly, it was put out I think by the military over there, the [Iranian Revolutionary Guard], who is opposed to what we are doing.”

“There’s no excuse for it,” he added later.”
