To the Obama administration and the Navy on t he rescue of Capt. Richard Phillips. After my criticism yesterday, I have to commend the administration for taking action.
Special c ongratulations to the Navy shooters. 30 meters isn't that far, but on a moving boat, shooting at moving people in another smaller moving boat in a hostage situation rates this a non-trivial event.
The larger question remains: how do we prevent this kind of nonsense in the future?
