U.S., World: Yay! The captain is safe. (And most of his Somali captors are dead)

  • The U.S. Navy rescued him this morning. Capt. Richard Phillips of the Maersk Alabama, who was kidnapped in a failed pirate hijack, was spotted this morning by the Navy. In rescuing him from the little dinghy he was in, they killed three of the four pirates in the process. The fourth one is in custody. So yeah. Lesson of the day: If you’re going to take over a ship, make sure it isn’t an American one, OK? Karma will get you, duders. source
