BANG!

...you're dead. Well, three of the pirates are. One more was captured and Richard Phillips, Captain of the Maersk Alabama, was rescued uninjured.

The U.S. Navy is now confirming the report. Free and safe.

Should be a heck of a story, if and when the details come out.

Job well done, fellows. BZ

Credit where credit is due: the call was made in the field under standing orders.

More on this from Eagle1.

What a wonderful happy ending to a very tense situation. GOOD JOB TO ALL INVOLVED in this successful mission.
Great links in your 4/12 post LDG-thank you. Didn't think Obama had much to do with it anyway, but he sure enjoys the credit he is receiving (sigh)

I was hoping we'd get the SEALs in on this. Of course I was seeing a better scene for an action movie in my dreams...
