Yo Ho Ho... And a bottle of dumb

Have you thought of the laughable absurdity of this:

There's a small lifeboat, 4 Muslims armed with AK-47s and one captive, in the middle of the ocean, surrounded by US Warships...

And the President of the United States sends in... (DRUM ROLL) an FBI negotiator.

God almighty.

Now, anyone care to muse why that gutsy Captain, who tried to escape, wasn't immediately grabbed up by covert Seal Teams within ear shot of that life boat?

Orders from el Presidente, maybe?

Meanwhile Senator John Kerry (D) (who served in Vietnam, by the way) is to hold SENATE PIRATE HEARINGS...

Provisional List of Witnessses
Johnny Depp
Long John Silver
Jim Hawkins
Captain Hook
Peter Pan
C-Span in alliance with Arrr-Span and Pirate Radio is expected to cover the whole proceedings live next Monday thru Thursday.

Meanwhile the smartest, handsomest, bravest and buffest man who ever lived, everer -- President Obama is boning up on the subject by reading Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan; and taking a fact-finding trip on Airforce One to Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean theme park ride

Here's what I don't understand about the whole "pirate" thing under the Obama administration.

Hillary Clinton has emphasized that this is a "criminal matter."

Okay -- then how can the Obama administration use the US military to settle any criminal act?

In "criminal" acts, doesn't the Justice Department have to follow certain procedures.
1. Miranda rights?

2. Legal protections for the "criminals," such as chain of evidence?

3. Prosecution of any Marines for any action that violates their "rights." Hell they've prosecuted US troops for killing terrorists in a war zone.
Oh well, when it's all resolved, I expect the President to give us another Obowa.
