Rosie O'Donnell, commenting on the captured Brits on The View:
"Interesting with the British sailors and Marines... who apparently went into Iranian waters, and who were seized by the Iranians, and I have one thing to say: Gulf of Tonkin. GOOGLE it (chuckles)... okay..."
Professor Arthur Herman, historian:
"It's very interesting, too that these guys went into the water by mistake, right at a time when British and American, you know, they're pretty much our biggest ally, are deciding whether or not to go to war."
Not a lot of deductive reasoning needed.
I would say the idea that you would have, as we discovered…of course, the Navy didn’t…Ministry of Defense in the Blair government didn’t release the information, but we discovered it from blogs, which then got leaked to reporters, that they ordered the captain and crew of the HMS Cornwall not to open fire when the Iranians came and hijacked those 15 sailors and Marines.
