Thank God for all these heroes.

I received this e-mail yesterday and it is meant as satire, but hope you all enjoy.
The US Navy has stated that the Navy seals could have acted faster and rescued the captain of the Maersk Alabama last week, but had to wait until the White House could confirm that none of the pirates were related to Obama:-)

Capt Phillips is half right. The military are heroes, but so is he and the crew of his ship. No shortage of heroes in this story.

BobA - that satire may not be that far fetched.

The more we learn about this hi-jacking by Terrorists, the more this captain comes into focus as a legitimate first class hero.

The Navy's status No question, but this guy rose above and beyond for a civilian, he had it together all at the right time.

Hey Tom R and Mark, I totally agree. I posted my first on my site as as Breaking Satyrical News. Our Navy Seals and Captain Phillips are the heroes, Osama....err....Obama does not even make a footnote.

Good one Bob A, but in all good satire there is an inkling of truth. With the way he runs around the world apologizing for Our country, the allusionn of him taking so much time to make a decision, it would not surprise me one bit if there is some truth to this.
