Good on Obama for making the call and sending in the peerless Navy SEALs to rescue the captain of the Maersk Alabama. As ExurbKevin notes, the brave captain — for the second time — jumped overboard and swam away, giving our SEALs the time to take advantage of the situation.
And by "take advantage of the situation" we mean "filling the lifeboat with enough 5.56mm-sized holes it could be used as a cheese grater."
As it should be. And I hope this dramatic and deadly action serves as a message — don't mess with the U.S.A., no matter who's in charge. Worked for Reagan. I refuse to belittle this glorious military achievement, as Reagan's rescue of American from Cuban Commies was belittled by the left some 25 years ago.
