Those that have brought me home ....

"I'm just the byline. The heroes are the Navy, the Seals and those that have brought me home."
--Capt. Richard Phillips of the Maersk Alabama.

President Obama first gave the Defense Department authorization to use lethal force to protect the captain's life Friday night. He extended authority again Saturday morning, according to press reports. As anyone who reads this blog knows, I'm no fan of the president. Along with appointing former Marine Commandant Gen. James L. Jones as his national security advisor Jan. 20, I'll say President Obama has done two things right.
