Captain Phillips has been rescued, and three of the four pirates holding him hostage have been sent to Hell courtesy of the United States Navy:
The captain of the Maersk Alabama was freed Sunday after being held captive since Wednesday by pirates off the coast of Somalia, a senior U.S. official with knowledge of the situation told CNN.
The official said Capt. Richard Phillips is uninjured and in good condition, and that three of the four pirates were killed. The fourth pirate is in custody. Phillips was taken aboard the USS Bainbridge, a nearby naval warship.
I said I’d give President Obama credit where he earned it, and this is one of those times: well done, Mr. President. That is how a commander-in-chief acts.
