We’re Journalists Who’ve Reviewed Hundreds of Pages of Confidential Documents on the Last Time the US Navy Faced off With Iran — Ask Us Anything!
We’re Megan Rose and Robert Faturechi, reporters for ProPublica. We’ve spent a year investigating the US Navy and how it's putting its sailors in unnecessary danger.
Our latest story dives deep into how 10 U.S. sailors were captured by Iran and held on tiny Farsi Island in 2016. The incident was solved diplomatically — but the potential for a real conflict was definitely there.
Sound familiar? There are definite parallels to what happened with the Navy drone last week. President Trump has even been talking about the Farsi Island incident lately as tensions have escalated with Iran.
Send us questions on the Navy, Iran, or reporting on sensitive global topics like this in general. We'll answer whatever we can.
