They weren’t in Texas so home defense will not be available as a defense in court.

They also weren't anywhere with, well, laws.

Good thing they have a very powerful leader to guide this military... oh wait, he was just “MONITORING THE SITUATION”? Never mind, good thing we have such good soldiers and navy personel...

I’ve looked over the CBS site and don’t see anything about what you posted...the only breaking news being shown is Joe Biden greeting marines coming home from Iraq at Ft Bragg...

I won’t be surprised if Obama tries to prosecute them for not giving the Muslim pirates due process.

Butt-kicking Americans prevented Obama from having to show his yellow streak. Nice.

THE ONE is still, probably, sleeping. He WAS out 'til 4AM this morning, dont you know...and all that jet lag...you know what I'm sayin?

Crewmembers: "Pirates? What pirates? We were having trouble with some parrots that flew aboard. We never saw any stinking pirates!"

I had to post a source, in that CBS radio news was running the story I used that link...Assuming they will update soon.
They ran the story as “Breaking News, and again at 11:30am EST.
Looking for confirmation on the web now ..

My guess is none of the American Crew were liberals like Barack Hussein.

Barack Hussein would have apologized to the pirates for years of capitalist expoloitation of third world nations, forcing medical advances, better agricultural practises, public sanitation and personal hygeine on their co-religionists. He would have tried to understand the pirates culture and world view. Finally, he would have whipped out a few ACORN membership applications for them.

Here’s the story at CBS news, with no such update as yet:

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2009/04/08/world/main4928088.shtml?tag=topStories;secondStory

Mostly it says that everyone in the Obama administration is thinking this over. That’s a great comfort!

Oh no, we are WATERBOARDING again!!

I think this might be acceptable as it is closer to execution than torture. We can still execute them I believe. Still, did they hit the water with any weights attached or holes in the flesh? If not, the pirates might have chance, if they are good swimmers. It's only 400 miles to land.

SeeBS News? Hmm, my first instinct is that this is incorrect information, but then again, they aren't reporting that Obama parachuted on to the ship and threw the pirates overboard by himself. So, maybe it is true?
