US tape laughable?

Did anyone else hear that tape supposedly of Iranian speedboat radio operator telling the US fleet they were about to be attacked? It sounded comically false. On Newsnight last night, we heard the crackly and noise-overlaid sound of the US captain warning the speedboats, then we heard this deep, up-to-the-microphone voice saying in English something to the effect of we are going to attack you; as if that laid-back, steady tone could be achieved from a small speedboat bouncing about at sea in the middle of a naval incident. It must have been produced by the same production company that produced those ludicrous, so-called intercepted phone calls supposedly of Iraqis saying "Quick move the weapons of mass destruction, the Americans are coming." (Where did they move them to - outer space?)
