Admiral John Richardson briefed reporters reporters on the results of the investigation into the January 2016 incident in which Iranian forces detained ten American sailors after their boats entered Iranian waters near Farsi Island. According to the investigation, the ten Navy sailors briefly held by Iran military forces committed a series of errors. The report listed bad training, a lack of leadership, and poor oversight as the reasons for their capture and interrogation.
