Statement on Iran seizing US Navy boats

DENVER—The Pentagon has said two US Navy boats are in Iranian custody and ten US Navy sailors have been detained by Iranian Revolutionary Guard forces. Reports came out today ahead of the president’s State of the Union speech.

Advancing Colorado Executive Director Jonathan Lockwood released the following statement:

“We are witnessing the fallout from bowing down to Iran and the Ayatollah. The president’s Iran deal narrative is blowing up in his face and politicians like Sen. Michael Bennet were blinded by partisan devotion to his dangerous agenda. The Iran deal has furthered the agenda of Islamic jihad and to anyone who had any foresight at all this latest development comes as no surprise. Our representatives should constrain Iran, not empower their bad behavior.”
