USA! USA! USA! Captain Rescued!
US Navy and Navy Seals, we salute your professionalism, your training, and your marksmanship.
Captain Richard Phillips, we salute your bravery.
President Barack Obama, I must grudgingly admit that I am impressed. Well done.
I am hoping that future press reports will answer the question as to why Navy marksmen did not open fire on the pirates when Captain Phillips tried to swim to freedom a couple of days ago. Were they not authorized to do so then?
