I was particularly interested in this tid-bit:

"The Maersk Alabama’s home port is in Norfolk, Va., where its parent company Maersk Line, Ltd. is also headquartered. The Maersk Alabama transports food aid to East Africa in support of the U.S. government’s “Food for Peace” program, according to the company. Crew members also help support the Bee Hive Children’s Home in Mombasa, Kenya."

Google mombasa kenya obama! I'm sure it's just a coincidence, but what if these guys saw something they shouldn't have aboard that ship?

Or perhaps they were loose ends in some other scandal.

...while the police investigates the possible circumstances...

That's a relief.

I'm sure we'll get the complete story once the investigation is complete.



This is just awful. I hope they get to the bottom of it!

I wonder what this

is all about?

I'm wondering if they were former Seal Team 6 members.
