An FBI hostage negotiation team
has been called in on the Somali pirate case we mentioned yesterday
. All the American hands are secure and in possession of their vessel except the captain, Richard Phillips. A U.S. Navy guided missile destroyer and other warships have been called to the scene. All of this, as previously reported, proves Obama is a failure. Top rightblogger Instapundit seems at first dismayed
that the crew retook the ship ("gets Obama off the hook") but later gloats
that "nation-states successfully suppressed pirates for years without such troubles, suggesting that the law has not exactly 'progressed' in this area" -- meaning BigObama government isn't the solution, it's the problem. "Team Obama said they were monitoring the situation," says Gateway Pundit
. "No doubt, they are looking for a place to hold talks." Blar har. "Have U.S. ships been spared until now because pirates feared the last president more than they fear this one," asks RedState
, "or is it merely coincidence?" Gasp! Unfortunately they fail to provide an imaginary conversation among the pirates ("Theese Obama, he is weak like the woo-man"). More Obama-blaming spin as the situation develops!
