Obama Somalia Hostage Situation

49Any president would take interest in hostage situations especially when an american is involved, not President Obama, “Guys, we’re talking about housing right now,” Obama said in response to a reporter’s question.
Richard Phillips the Underhill cargo-ship captain has been held hostage by Somali pirates in a lifeboat off the coast of East Africa for two days and Obama’s concern is “Guys, we’re talking about housing right now,”.

Obama could have made some mentioning to the family, express some concern for notations, anything. This is another case of ‘inexperience’ that has fell in the lap of Obama. The lifeboat carrying four pirates and Phillips is said to be equipped with food for three days and water for 10 days, but was adrift Thursday after running out of gas. The USS Bainbridge arrived at the site near the coast of Somalia and began communicating with the pirates. The Maersk Alabama departed the scene without Phillips. Several pirate controlled ships has start sailing toward the lifeboat.

There have been more that 130 attacks on ships off the coast of Somalia in the past year and more than 40 ships have been seized. President Obama still declined comments on Phillips….“Guys, we’re talking about housing right now,”. What do you think about this?

    Anonymous, Obama does not know what to do, see he’s faced with a problem that he has to address. He cannot blame no one this time, he as to do something. Hillary is laughing cause she knows Obama is back in the oval office stuttering over words. She probably had a flash back of the conversation with Obama while she was talking and couldn’t contain herself. Thanks for stopping in, don’t be a stranger.

    Sugha, im glad we people make you laugh, because you people make me laugh even harder. If you think Obama ok’d DEADLY force you must be crazy!!! Everyone who has any sense knew the Seals would make the attack, after Phillips indicated that he would be willing to jump, duh. Phillips made this decision not YOUR OBAMA, Obama does not have the guts for this kind of think, any way he as playing with some dog he has. The deadly force you’re talking was only because the pirates were willing to fight, duh…meaning they will be killed. Obama was not even thinking about this, see Sugha in 2008, the United Nations Security Council passed five separate resolutions dealing with Somali piracy. Jurisdiction to try captured pirates, Kenya formalized the agreement to try captured pirates in 2006. This will mean Kenya will be making the judgements, and the retaliation will be toward Kenya citizens, Now Sugha..who has family in Kenya….right! Obama was not going to do NOTHING, thats why he kept quit. Sugha, thanks for stopping by, please don’t be a stranger.
