Was the Return of Our Sailors From Iran the Diplomatic Victory the Admin is Claiming?

When asked about the capture of 10 American sailors, White House Spokesman Josh Earnest said this to CNN‘s Jake Tapper:

“We’ve received assurances from the Iranians that both our sailors are safe and they are being sort of afforded the proper courtesy that you would expect.”

After our 10 captured sailors were returned, John Kerry tweeted these:

The sailors have indeed been returned safely and in a peaceful manner. But was “proper courtesy” given?

This does not look courteous:

Nor does this:

This does not convey safety and strength:

Isn’t it likely that we were just embarrassed, as result of the Iranians perceiving a weak Administration, for the sake of trying to maintain a phony nuke deal?
