No, the way I heard it, Obama (who was born in Somalia, not Kenya, and grew up in a Pirate family, his dad was actually  a great grandson of Captain Kidd)was in on the kidnapping for a third of the take. The money funding the Pirates was an earmark that got through  Congress   and was clearly labeled in Obama’s latest bailout plan, but no one ever bothers to read those things. All the Pirates involved had worked with the Obama Presidential Campaign last year. One of them (Long John) had actually coined the phrase “Yes we can”. Following the election, they were sent by Obama, under diplomatic passports, to Somalia in order to be his eyes and ears on the Pirate operation. Contrary to what your friend reports, Obama had given “shoot to kill” orders to all Naval personnel involved , specifically without regard to the lives of the captive or his crewmembers. This was done to prevent certain documents Obama had sent over to the Pirates (these documents included not only a treasure map, but  all manifests for every American commercial ship passing by the Horn of Africa for the next 90 days) from falling into the hands of the press.. The documents  were printed on White House stationary. The story you sent out is a cover story concocted by the administration which would rather appear cowardly than let America know the more damaging real truth. Just so you know, Obama’s plan was foiled when one of the Pirates was captured alive. Take my word for it, that Jolly Roger never live to stand trial. I understand that Alan Keyes will have a report on this on his radio show today.

Wade, 
 do you think this is true? 



 
This explains why no shots were fired when Capt. Phillips jumped overboard the first time!
