Just hours before the President spoke to Congress last night ten US sailors were captured in Iranian waters. They've now been released. Today, Secretary of State John Kerry thanked the Iranian government and called the sailors' release a victory for diplomacy,. "All indications tell us our sailors were well taken care of provided with blankets and food and assisted with their return to their fleet earlier today. I think we can imagine how a similar situation might have played out three or four years ago." Geoff Dyer is US foreign policy correspondent for the Financial Times.
