    Yes... all of which is misdirection and obfuscation, intended to divert attention away from the lack of effective response from The Secular Messiah.

    Good news that the ship is back in the hands of the crew.

    They heard that the One was going to be really really mad at them, so they freed the hostages.

    Pentagon says crew retake US ship from pirates

    Associated Press Writer
    NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) - Pentagon officials said Wednesday that the American crew of a U.S.-flagged cargo ship had retaken control from Somali pirates who hijacked the vessel far off the Horn of Africa.

    The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because information was still preliminary. But they said the hijacked crew had apparently contacted the private company that operates the ship.

    At a noon news conference, Maersk Line Ltd. CEO John Reinhart said that the company was working to contact families of the crew.

    "Speculation is a dangerous thing when you're in a fluid environment. I will not confirm that the crew has overtaken this ship," he said.

    A U.S. official said the crew had retaken control and had one pirate in custody.

    The official said the status of the other pirates was unknown but they were reported to "be in the water." The official spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of the matter.

    Yep!

    It reminds me of the same spirit as that displayed by the passengers of Flight 93 who took a stand against terror.

    No I am saying that the US does not help most of its citizens that get in trouble abroad, so why help this crew? There is no US policy to help any and all US citizens abroad so there is no precedent for helping this crew what so ever.

    As usually you cant read. I ASKED if it was from Fox News, did not assume it was Fox News. He must have gotten his false information from somewhere after all.

    As usually? Really?

    You didn't ask, you assumed it was from Fox News. Anyone who read what you typed completely understood that you were assuming. Don't try to be coy Petey, it doesn't suit you.

    BTW, Illinois still doesn't border Canada.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.
