Not a Criminal
Kudos to the US Navy and the Navy Seals for their daring rescue of Captain Richard Phillips today. 3 of the pirates were killed and one was captured.
In the midst of this great news, I saw something that I found troubling. One pundit said the captured pirate might be tried as a criminal in New York Federal Court. Let’s hope that does not happen.
This pirate is NOT a criminal. He is a TERRORIST! He does not have the rights of a U.S. citizen and must not be given those rights. If he is guilty, he must be executed.
