You're going to upset Jeff!!!!

 

But actually, they are looking for a "life sentence" (I wonder when he'll get parole - and into what state (hopefully Pelosi's home town)....

Just read this, and I quote.....

 

"How the rescue happened

Posted By Uncle Jimbo

I just finished listening to the press conference w/ ADM Gortney about the rescue of Captain Phillips. At the time it happened the USS Bainbridge was towing the lifeboat to calmer waters as the sea state was deteriorating. One of the pirates was on board the Bainbridge as the talks about obtaining Phillip's release continued. The lifeboat was approx. 25 m behind the Bainbridge when snipers on the fantail observed one of the pirates in the pilot house of the lifeboat pointing an AK-47 at the back of a tied up Phillips and the other two pirates on board were visible (at least shoulders and heads). The standing authority gave them clearance to engage the pirates if the life of the captain was in imminent danger. The on scene commander deemed this to be true and gave the order to fire. All three bad guys were taken out and then a rigid inflatable boat went to the lifeboat to retrieve Phillips. Iti is unknown at this point whether the shooters were SEALs or Marine Scout Snipers as both would have been available. This was not a rescue attempt ordered by National Command Authority i.e. the President. It was a reaction by the on scene commander under standard authority to safeguard the life of a hostage.

 

The AP is reporting that President Obama gave the order to use military force to rescue the hostage, that is misleading."

The determination and heroism of the crew of the cargo ship and our men in uniform should be noted!

 

I have been following the pirates in Somalia and other places and have read a lot about them over the years as I read a lot of maritime magazines...about time the pirates met some real resistance.

 

Never underestimate the resolve of the average American.

 

There is a product out for flare guns that has a plastic insert that enables them to fire a .38 round. I know several pleasure boats that have them aboard...they do not qualify as "firearms" in most foreign countries...

No... The AP misleading in an attempt to give their guy more credit than he deserves?? :hysterical:

 

With the newly imposed "Hope and Change" I hope the Navy read them their Miranda rights. Or worse...what if the Navy made them feel uncomfortable???
