In Daring Raid, Navy SEALs Free 2 Aid Workers From Somali Pirates

Civics and World - General

Navy SEAL helicopter - US Army photoIn a daring raid reminiscent of the kind used to kill Osama bin Laden, U.S. Navy SEALs swooped into Somalia Wednesday morning and rescued two aid workers, who had been held by pirates since October.

The soldiers came in by helicopter and engaged in a firefight that killed nine pirates. The SEALs left with Jessica Buchanan, a 32-year-old American, and a 60-year-old Dane, Poul Thisted, who were injury free and on their way home.

Two teams of Navy SEALs landed by helicopter near the compound, freed the hostages after gunfire broke out, and flew to safety.

Testimonials

I am totally sick of hearing about murders, drugs, and all the rubbish the commercial networks bombard us with. I am not sticking my head in the sand. It's just that I think, enough is enough. I get depressed as it is, without hearing about all the negative stuff in the world. Thanks for making my day.
