U.S. special forces have seized a tanker that fled with a cargo of oil from a Libyan port, the U.S. Department of Defense said on Monday, halting an attempt by rebels to sell petroleum on the global market.
Libyan rebels demanding a greater share of oil wealth managed to load crude onto the ship, which escaped Libya's navy, embarrassing the government and prompting parliament to sack the prime minister.
U.S. Navy SEALs boarded the Morning Glory tanker in international waters off Cyprus on Sunday night and took control of the vessel, which the Pentagon said was held by three armed Libyans.

What foreign policy genius! Israel requests assistance...DENIED! Egypt requests release of Apache helos...DENIED! Clown Prince nobama and his lap-dog, the traitor kerry, go on their merry way.
Something doesn’t smell right. I wonder if it was really oil on there... or was it somethin’ else?
Didn’t we hear Kim was firing off short range missles? Maybe he was pissed off.
I suggest the hijackers bring along a few Americans captives with them. That will ensure Obama does nothing about them.
Shippus interruptus. That is, the expression "morning glory" can refer to something that can happen to adolescent and young adult males when they wake up.
Why would obozo use some of our most highly trained and valuable Spec Ops for something that isn’t any of our concern? Oh, that’s right, the child king does what he wants.
What was our national interest in doing this?
I forget now, are the Libyan rebels good guys or bad guys?
I think the animals that killed Stevens and the Seals were bad guys when they did that, but were good guys to this administration before they became bad guys that did that.
The Obama admin just lets them go because they have big moufs and might talk. Or they might have been good until they saw that video. LOL /sarc
Picture muzzle Obama setting himself up as King of Libya after being POTUS. He will need some place to go that doesn’t have an extradition treaty with the US.
But the homosexual thing will have to go and Reggie couldn’t visit ....
A better post for Baraq would be UN President.
MooseChelle ain’t gonna live in any 3rd world country, even as queen.
She needs to be in the US where she will appear on The View and Blowprah.
The moHAMmadens have a thingy where all you have to do is say that the prophet liked little girls, not little boys and you can do that forbidden thing as long as you don’t fall in love.
Hillary and Obama wrecked Libya and took one million barrels of oil a day off the world market. That helps keep the price of oil high. Who would want that?
Hmmmmm. I had to read it twice but I now “get it”.
So, in effect, the Mohammedans most core problem and root of all this worldwide mayhem we are all reminded of when we are groped at the airport is their sexual dysfunction and attraction to little girls allegedly sanctioned by their God Allah???!!!
Add to that that they seek to completely cover women in public, marry them at 8, stone them for getting raped, and legally beat them!
Oh, and lets not forget our President once famously said “ I will stand with the Muslims when push comes to shove”.......or similar words to that effect.
And, I almost forgot their penalty of death to homosexuals.
I wish some smart person could explain WHY a homosexual or liberal could ever support this so called “religion” but, alas, I don’t think anyone can.
That and also homosexuality is rampant in the muslim world. Ask anyone that has been to Afcrapistan or Iraq. They outwardly condemn it but routinely sodomize young boys. As long as it’s not “love” it’s okay.
We’re a “Global Force for Good”, don’cha know?
None. Dims only believe that our military should be used if it’s not in our interest.
......I did not know that! Thanks.
Do a web search of “dancing boys of Afghanistan”
