    Seals get the credit for saving the Captin.
    Good thing we sent in men with guns instead of diplomats.
    Mr Obama, thanks for letting them dogs loose!

    This is a heart wrenching story, but one of courage. There are some that believe that the captain was the only one brave, but it was his family too, because they had to endure a long haul, not knowing what would come next (as the mother so quaintly mentioned in her written statement).
    This is a sad story, but one that ends well. The nightmare may be in the past, but the bad memories will not go away quickly.

    Love and support from family is always good, and prayer. I pray for this family, as they will be going through some trying times together, as they sort all this unbelievable ordeal their father went through.

    m out.

    In retaliation to attacks, pirates say they will kill all American and French hostages.

    This type of desm is unacceptable. The nations must do something to protect the crews at sea.

    It is always excellent when you overcome your trials and tribulations to get to a successful point in your life! I am glad that the captain who was held hostage returned safely home to his spouse! Obama did well in making an effort to help him get home without harm or danger!
