Somali Pirates Seize American-Flagged Ship
Upon returning from his first European trip Wednesday — at about 3 a.m. — he got word that a U.S.-flagged cargo ship was in the hands of Somali pirates. The seafaring hostage takers were holding a 20-member crew, all Americans. Historians said it was the first time in 200 years pirates had taken control of an American-flagged vessel.
Way to go, Mr. President. You promised us change and gosh haven't you delivered. Congratulations for pissing on the grave of Stephen Decatur. Jolly good show!
