'Navigation Error' to Blame for Sailors Straying Into Iranian Waters, Defense Secretary Says

'Navigation Error' to Blame for Sailors Straying Into Iranian Waters, Defense Secretary SaysU.S. sailors straying into Iranian waters was a “mistake,” Defense Secretary Ash Carter said today, noting that a “navigation error” was ultimately to blame. In a interview with Fusion’s Jorge Ramos, Carter said he was “grateful” the sailors had been returned safely after being detained by Iranian Revolutionary Guard Forces overnight Tuesday. “It does appear from the information that they have given through their commanders that they did stray into Iranian waters due to a navigation error,” Carter said.
