"Capt. Richard Phillips was in "imminent danger" of being killed before U.S. Special Operations forces shot the pirates in an operation personally approved by President Barack Obama, U.S. officials said."

This must be pissing off some who though he was soft.

I hope people can see that even life and death takes a back seat to image and politics.

It is a great result. Period. It is minuscule in comparison though to other dilemmas that face our immediate world right now that should not be ignored because it lacks curb appeal, or doesn't tug on the heart strings, or doesn't have some American town name attached to some inane sports team.

Are we so mentally limited that we can't handle more than one situation at once? Multi-tasking isn't that difficult. Now wasting time on the Octo-mom, that's another story......

Not a bad idea! I'd vote for that over providing free room and board for the rest of his life in a US prison.

Correct, there was a standing order that allowing action if the captains life appeared to be in imminent danger. I'll give kudos to President Obama for that.
