Iran planning documentary and a book on sailor "confessions"

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran's armed forces are preparing to release a documentary and book about the detention and "confessions" of 15 British sailors and marines held captive in Iran, a military commander said on Tuesday.

"A documentary about their arrest, interrogation and confessions ... is being prepared and soon it will hit the market," Commander Alireza Afshar, cited as deputy for "defence propaganda," said in a faxed statement.
Iran released the captives on Thursday, 13 days after surrounding their boats in what it said was its territory but Britain said was inside Iraqi waters.
In captivity, several of the Britons were shown on Iran's state television saying they were sorry for entering Iranian waters illegally. Afshar's statement did not say whether the documentary would contain any material not already shown.
The 14 servicemen and one woman said in a statement given at an official news conference after their return to England they had been blindfolded, bound, kept in isolation and threatened with up to seven years in jail.
Iran has dismissed the news conference as "propaganda."
"Instead of thanking and welcoming the Islamic Republic for its clemency in pardoning the sailors, the childish staged theatre ... once more displayed Britain's aggressive habit," Afshar said.
The Ministry of Defence waived the rules this week barring serving military personnel from selling their stories to media because of huge public interest. It revised that decision on Monday in the face of criticism, but not before several of the soldiers sold their stories. Afshar said letting the sailors profit from the situation was a "scandal" for the British army.

And I'm sure it will be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, help Ahmadinejad.

I would hope that the sailors had GPS on their boats and if so, that will ulitmately exonerate them to the world and demonstrate what a bunch of crapweasels run Iran. Nothing like throwing egg on their face and embarrassing them in the world community, maybe the people over there will wake up.

On the other hand, if the guys were really in Iranian waters, what a cockup for the Brits!! One of the most powerful nations on Earth can't even keep track of their guys and manage to let them get caught by Iranians??
