Iran – The operation Eagle Claw , also known as the  Evening Light , is the secret military mission that was organized to save the 52 hostages held captive in the American embassy in Tehran. The operation, which began on April 24, 1980, was such a glaring failure that it prompted US leaders to create the United States Special Operations Command. Due to the failure of the mission the hostages were released after 444 days of imprisonment only after lengthy diplomatic negotiations.
