Iranian Warships In the Persian Gulf Swarmed and Harassed Two US Coast Guard Ships for Hours in Early April

Over the weekend the US Navy reported that Iran warships had harassed US Coast Guard ships in the Persian Gulf for hours in early April.  This all happened while Obama/Biden were again working on a ‘deal’ with Iran. 

It came out this week that failed Presidential candidate, Democrat John Kerry, fed the Iranians information about Israel’s covert operations in Syria.

Now we find out almost a month after it happened that the US Coast Guard was attacked by Iranian warships in early April:

On Saturday, the U.S. Navy announced that a group of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) speedboats swarmed two U.S. Coast Guard vessels on April 2, maneuvering within 70 yards of the U.S. vessels in what the U.S. Navy called “unsafe and unprofessional” maneuvers.

The incident went unreported for nearly a month before U.S. Navy officials disclosed the incident in an April 24 press release, which included photos.

The U.S. Navy officials said three Iranian fast attack crafts and one ship known as Harth 55, a 180-foot twin-hulled support vessel followed the U.S. Coast Guard Island-class patrol cutters USCGC Monomoy (WPB-1326) and USCGC Wrangell (WPB-1332) as they patrolled international waters in the Persian Gulf.

The Navy reported the harassment went on for three hours:

Cmdr. Rebecca Rebarich, a spokeswoman for the Navy’s Fifth Fleet said the Coast Guard vessels issued warnings for three hours as the Iranian speed boats buzzed past them and repeatedly crossed in front of their bows.

“After approximately three hours of the U.S. issuing warnings and conducting defensive maneuvers, the IRGCN vessels maneuvered away from the U.S. ships and opened distance between them,” Rebarich told the Wall Street Journal in a statement on Monday.

To think that Obama/Biden want to sign an agreement with Iran.  What could be more insane?
