Discussing Iran’s seizure of 10 U.S. Sailors (and release) on Wednesday’s edition of MSNBC’s The Last Word, former UK Ministry of Defense official and foreign affairs correspondent Michael Kay declared that there was “nothing alarming” and instead “standard protocol” taking place in the video released by Iranian state TV of the nine men and one woman being boarded and held for one day.

In addition, Atlantic editor Steve Clemons gushed that the event was another step in “something dramatic” taking place with Iran going “from being one of the most despised nations in our history to something that's a much more comfortable potential partner.”
