If you were a crew member on a cargo ship and got kidnapped by
desperadoes, the last thing you'd be thinking about is President
Obama.

You'd be thinking about your cornhole, or whether they are going to
cut your hands off before they shoot you in the head.

Obama is on top of the situation:

"President Barack Obama was getting regular updates on the situation, said
spokesman Robert Gibbs. Attorney General Eric Holder says the United States
will take whatever steps are needed to protect U.S. shipping interests
against pirates.

The Bainbridge was among several U.S. ships that had been patrolling the
region when the 17,000-ton Alabama, carrying U.N. food aid for East Africa,
was attacked.

US warship watches Somali pirates with US hostage


By ELIZABETH A. KENNEDY and MATT APUZZO, Associated Press Writers


NAIROBI, Kenya - Somali pirates and their hostage American sea captain were
adrift in a lifeboat Thursday off the Horn of Africa, shadowed by a U.S.
destroyer with more warships on the way in a U.S. show of force. The U.S.
brought in FBI hostage negotiators to work with the military in trying to
secure the release of Capt. Richard Phillips of Underhill, Vt. An official
said the bandits were in talks with the Navy about resolving the standoff
peacefully.


As the high-seas drama stretched into a second day, the freighter that was
the target of the pirates steamed away from the lifeboat under armed U.S.
Navy guard, with all of its crew safe - except for the captive captain.


The pirates tried to hijack the U.S.-flagged Maersk Alabama on Wednesday,
but Phillips thwarted the takeover by telling his crew of about 20 to lock
themselves in a room, the crew told stateside relatives.


The crew later overpowered some of the pirates, but Phillips, 53,
surrendered himself to the bandits to safeguard his men, and at least four
of the Somalis fled with him to an enclosed lifeboat, the relatives said.


On Thursday, the Alabama began sailing toward the Kenyan port of Mombasa -
its original destination - and was expected to arrive Saturday night, said
Joseph Murphy, a professor at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy whose son,
Shane Murphy, is second in command of the vessel. The elder Murphy said he
was briefed by the shipping company.


A U.S. official, who asked not to be identified because of the sensitivity
of the situation, said a Navy team of armed guards was aboard the Alabama.


Earlier in the day, the USS Bainbridge arrived near the Alabama and the
lifeboat with the pirates and Phillips. Maersk shipping company spokesman
Kevin Speers told AP Radio the lifeboat was out of fuel and "dead in the
water."


The U.S. Navy sent up P-3 Orion surveillance aircraft and had video of the
scene.


Gen. David Petraeus, head of the U.S. Central Command, said more ships would
be sent to the area because "we want to ensure that we have all the
capability that might be needed over the course of the coming days."


President Barack Obama was getting regular updates on the situation, said
spokesman Robert Gibbs. Attorney General Eric Holder says the United States
will take whatever steps are needed to protect U.S. shipping interests
against pirates.


FBI spokesman Richard Kolko described the bureau's hostage negotiating team
as "fully engaged" with the military on ways to retrieve Phillips.


The pirates were holding talks with the Navy about a peaceful resolution,
said a U.S. official who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not
authorized to speak on the record.


Though officials declined to say how close the Bainbridge is to the pirates,
one official said of the bandits: "They can see it with their eyes." He
spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of talking about a
military operation in progress.


The Bainbridge was among several U.S. ships that had been patrolling the
region when the 17,000-ton Alabama, carrying U.N. food aid for East Africa,
was attacked. It was the sixth vessel to be hit by pirates in a week.

I'm saying that the reality of the situation is much worse for the
targets, than the romantic word "Pirates" seems to evoke.

People pretend they'd handle things better than the people at sea.
The attackers are organized, they have satellite radio, GPS and
probably RADAR. They are armed with automatic rifles and rocket
propelled grenades. The closest thing the Maersk ship had to a weapon
was a high pressure water hose which they tried to use against the
pirates.

Reports are the hostage is "alive". He's "alive" after being
kidnapped, escaping into the ocean and being recaptured. Chances are
he's got hypothermia and hasn't been given a bite of food in 48
hours.

Pirate attack? What Pirate attack? did the read those Pirates their
Miranda rights? Did they torture them? What teh fuck is going on over
there? I dont know jack shoit.
'Pirates' Strike a U.S. Ship Owned by a Bush Pentagon Contractor, But Is the
Media Telling the Whole Story?

Jeremy Scahill, Rebel Reports

ForeignPolicy: Reports say the crew of a U.S. cargo vessel seized early
today has retaken the ship, but there's more to the story of rising "pirate"
attacks.

UPDATE: At least one nuclear-powered U.S. warship is reportedly on its way
to the scene of the hijacking off the coast of Somalia of a vessel owned by
a major Pentagon contractor. A U.S. official told the Associated Press the
destroyer USS Bainbridge is en route while another official said six or
seven ships are responding to the takeover of the "Maersk Alabama," which is
part of a fleet of ships owned by Maersk Ltd., a U.S. subsidiary of a
Denmark firm, which does about a half-billion dollars in business with the
U.S. government a year.

The Somali pirates who took control of the 17,000-ton "Maersk Alabama"
cargo-ship in the early hours of Wednesday morning probably were unaware
that the ship they were boarding belonged to a U.S. Department of Defense
contractor with "top security clearance".

http://rebelreports.com/post/94198014/putting-todays-pirate-attack-in-context

If the criminals from the Maersk Alabama were dumping nuclear waste in the
Indian Ocean, they should be jailed. I would say unbelievable, but after the
AIG bonus thing, I will believe anything.
Take this fact: Over $300 million worth of tuna, shrimp, salmon and lobster
are "being stolen every year by illegal trawlers" off California's coast,
forcing the fishing industry there into a state of virtual non-existence.

As soon as the [Somali] government was gone in 1991, mysterious ships
started appearing off the coast of Somalia, dumping vast barrels into the
ocean. The coastal population began to sicken. At first they suffered
strange rashes, nausea and malformed babies. Then, after the 2005 tsunami,
hundreds of the dumped and leaking barrels washed up on shore. People began
to suffer from radiation sickness, and more than 300 died.

So, did our Navy just participate in another American republican crime?

No, President OBAMA has no reason to resign. He'll be President Obama for
the nexr 8 years. After then there will be President Robert Kennedy, Jr for
8 years and then, President Chelsea Clinton.
I predict Limbaugh will cause an attempted assassination on President Obama
and Limbaugh will be imprisoned along with Sean Insannity and Glen Beck
along with Bill O'Reilly for treason.
The conspirators will be hung with piano wire.so their heads will plop off
nice and clean and can fit atop pikes.

Presumably the Navy will arrest them eventually, Mirandise them in the process,
and transport them to federal court for trial. They aren't supposed to rush
people holding hostages as long as negotiations are keeping them alive.

========================================

As CiC, Obama ordered the US Navy to respond to the 'crisis'. If it had
been "Wrongway" George, he would've attacked South Korea, saying, "Dey habes
WMD's an, an, mopeds". Then Bush would've attacked Japan to get revenge for
his Dad getting shot down 60 years ago while cowardly retreated from battle
and his men died.
