President George W Bush has condemned Iran's "inexcusable behaviour" after its capture of 15 Royal Navy personnel.
Mr Bush told reporters at Camp David: "The British hostages issue is a serious issue because the Iranians took these people out of Iraqi water.
"And it is inexcusable behaviour.
"And I support the prime minister when he made it clear there were no quid pro quos. The Iranians must give back the hostages."
(I have edited out irrelevent portions and all parts in bold are my emphasis)
I've been watching BBC news this morning and, without even a trace of amusement (or bemusement), the newsreaders skip from Bush announcing that Iran must free the "British Hostages" to a story of a British "Detainee" realeased from captivity in Guantanamo Bay after five years. This is all amid a deeply sickening fiasco where the US is explicitly refusing to extradite CIA Agents accused of kidnapping (part of the illegal "extraordinary rendition") EU nationals from Germany and Italy. The US is even threatening to withold intelligence from the nations if they persue the extradition requests.
