U.S., World: So, how bad is this captured pirate, anyway?

  • Abdiwali Abdiqadir Muse may have been tough on the high seas, but he seemed very scared in the courtroom yesterday. source
  • His lawyer, Deirdre von Dornum, said, “As you can tell, he’s extremely young, injured and terrified.” So why was he smiling initially? source
  • His mom said he’s 16 and deserved a fair verdict. She pleaded with the judges “not to commit an injustice against Abdiwali.” source
  • The FBI’s account, however, portrays him as the ringleader of the Maersk Alabama attack who shot at Capt. Richard Phillips. source
