    I feel bad about those people... On the other hand, why do people go to places that are known for serious problems. It's a well known fact that Pirates operate in these waters, yet people still go there... Same with those Hikers that are held in Iran... Not a smart move to go hiking in a country (Iraq) that is in the middle of a war. Guess people just figure they are infallable.

    The pirates, every one of them, that were captured today for murdering 4 American's shoould be sentenced similarily like the one that was sentenced today to 30 years. Just one thing, they said they were sure they were safe going near where they were hijacked? No one is safe. Giving Bibles out to foreign countries is admirable, but not at the cost of your life.

    Your guest could barely conceal his contempt for the navy and their actions and seemed to be of the opinion that the best course of action would be to not frighten the poor pirates and allow them to reach shore for a nice round of protracted negotiation…all for people who put themselves deliberately in harm’s way. No wonder there are 700+ people being held captive by pirates if this is the FBI’s policy. Why are we negotiating with these people at all? Bomb the mother ships and immediately sink any vessel that appears to have pirates on it. People dying is tragic but perpetuating the ability of outlaws to continue to kidnap people and hold them for ransom is more tragic. Why didn’t you discuss non-negotiation as a tactic?
