Somali Pirates Attack U.S.-Flagged Maersk Alabama Second Time

Boy, we sure don't seem to learn from our past mistakes and this episode will prove that as Fox reports this morning the very same ship hijacked earlier in the year is now in the hands of Pirates AGAIN!!!! At least this time the attack was repelled and one hopes all pirates killed in the process...

Africa - FOXNews.com: "NAIROBI, Kenya — Somali pirates attacked the Maersk Alabama on Wednesday for the second time in seven months, though private guards on board the U.S.-flagged ship repelled the attack with gunfire and a high-decibel noise device.

A U.S. surveillance plane was monitoring the ship as it continued to its destination on the Kenyan coast, while a pirate said that the captain of a ship hijacked Monday with 28 North Korean crew members on board had died of wounds.

Pirates hijacked the Maersk Alabama last April and took ship captain Richard Phillips hostage, holding him at gunpoint in a lifeboat for five days. Navy SEAL sharpshooters freed Phillips while killing three pirates in a daring nighttime attack.

Four suspected pirates in a skiff attacked the ship again on Tuesday around 6:30 a.m. local time, firing on the ship with automatic weapons from about 300 yards away, a statement from the U.S. Fifth Fleet in Bahrain said."
I see Obama's gone to great lengths to see our merchant ships are safe out there even after being directly involved the last time.....don't forget,....He gave the order to shoot..remember...lol
