BREAKING UPDATE: TWO OF THE PIRATES TOOK THE CAPTAIN CAPTIVE (Fox)
Go America! The crew has taken back the ship. Twenty Americans took control - Shane Murphy, second in command, called his father on his cell phone and told him they wrested back control of the ship."Don't worry, we're safe, Dad".
American exceptionalism, of course.
The current administration is an aberration, an ugly blip on the screen of American greatness. He does not have the American soul.
USAID food relief ship at midnight was hijacked at midnight last night by Muslim pirates.
UPDATE: Is Hussein taking credit yet, or has he disavowed any acts of violence against the jihadis and proclaimed that they will not be tolerated?
Have the leftopaths at the Puff Ho and the KOS asylum started crying that the pirates were tortured? Their rights violated?
UPDATE: The crew of a U.S.-flagged container ship has retaken control of the ship from pirates but its captain is being held hostage, the freighter's second officer said Wednesday (more here). hat tip Deniece
"There's four Somali pirates, and they've got our captain," Ken Quinn told CNN in a ship-to-shore phone interview.
Capt. Richard Phillips is being held in the Maersk Alabama's 28-foot lifeboat, Quinn said.
The crew had a plan to make an exchange for their captain.
"We had a pirate we took and kept him for 12 hours," Quinn told CNN. "We tied him up and he was our prisoner."
The crew gave back their prisoner but the pirates reneged on the plan and are continuing to hold Phillips captive.
"So now we're just trying to offer them whatever we can, food, but it's not working too good," he said.
Quinn said the crew is trying to hold off the pirates for three more hours until a coalition warship is expected to arrive.
