Hours before President Obama’s final State of the Union address, NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent and MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell took to the airwaves of Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News to complain that Iran seizing 10 U.S. Sailors had created a “frantic” situation for the President that “could not have happened at the worst time.”

Anchor Lester Holt led into Mitchell’s analysis by explaining that Tuesday’s news comes “against the back drop of years of bad history between the U.S. and Iran, but also the delicate nuclear deal” reached between the countries and allies in July 2015.
