First the Merchant Mariners, then the Navy Seals. Great job, gentlemen. This was terrific news.

note for the record: no mention of the Obama order.

Obama order?

What did he have to do with this?

Thomas-I think Crowley means the fact that Obama green-lighted the local commanders to act as they saw fit.That was the right thing to do in this situation insofar as it didn't involve hostile action against a foreign power,just some buccaneers.

"no mention of the Obama order"

No mention of Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr. on RI Future.

No mention of Obama's justice department clearing former Sen. Stevens of all charges on RI Future.

No mention of Obama's justice department agreeing with the Bush administration's policy on international telephone surveillance on RI Future.

President Obama made the right call, but it was kind of a no brainer. What matters to me is what he does next. If he thinks the pirate crisis is over, he's in a lot more over his head than I thought.

Given that your "note" highlights only the fact that that the guy at the very top of the org chart didn't get any mention in my post, and that you made no mention of the Navy Seals, or the FBI negotiators, or all of the sailors and other personnel on site who did the actual work, I have to say that you've provided a fine example of how "boss cultures" view events like this one.
