The U.S. Navy officer in charge of 10 American sailors who were detained by Iranian authorities earlier this year was dismissed from his post by officials who cited a loss of confidence in his ability to command.

Cmdr. Eric Rasch had been relieved of his duties after a preliminary investigation into the Jan. 12 incident, in which 10 sailors crossed into Iranian waters in the Persian Gulf, the Navy said in a statement.

  1. ie he’s riding a desk in the bowels of the Pentagon …his record flagged..and a promotion board will see nothing but “FAILURE” reviewing his record
