Obama reaches out to moderate pirates

Here's what one witty blogger expects from President Obama when it comes to dealing with those pirates.

Are they the same pirates President Obama gave the order for Navy Seals to take out on Sunday?

Score: Obama and Navy Seals 3; pirates 0

Russ it's not at all clear that Obama gave such an order. I think it's likely that he did his best to avoid harming the pirates. I say this because of the extreme emphasis those present put on their judgment that the captain's life was in danger because a pirate had an AK47 pointed at his head.

It smells a bit as if the "danger" decision was made to accomplish what needed to be done rather than what Mr O wanted: more appeasement.
