Update on Navy investigation into captured US sailors

Barbard Starr at CNN offers an update on the US sailors captured by Iran in January 2016:

Washington (CNN)The 10 U.S. Navy sailors captured and briefly held by Iran in January made repeated mistakes that led them into Iranian territorial waters and being captured, according to an initial Navy investigation.

The investigation has not yet been released, but CNN spoke with a U.S. official directly familiar with the details. Because the sailors and other naval personnel could be facing disciplinary action, the report may not be released until their fate is settled.
