"The crews of two U.S. Navy boats detained briefly by Iran in January were "derelict" in their duties during a mistake-prone mission in the Persian Gulf, a Navy investigation released Thursday concluded.
The investigation found that the crews of the riverine boats took an unauthorized shortcut through Iranian territorial waters because they were in a hurry, and were not prepared to resist or evade the Iranian naval ships that surrounded them off the coast of Iran's Farsi Island on Jan. 12."
