WASHINGTON — In a daring nighttime raid Tuesday, U.S. Navy Seals rescued two hostages, including one American, who were being held by kidnappers in Somalia, U.S. officials tell NBC News.
American Jessica Buchanan, 32, and a 60-year-old Dane, Poul Thisted, were working for a Danish relief organization in northern Somalia when they were kidnapped last October. U.S. officials described their kidnappers as heavily armed common criminals with no known ties to any organized militant group.
Now this is what the USA is all about. Honor, glory, protecting its own, leader of the free world and the finest military men on the planet.
As I have said in previous articles, “take the handcuffs off of our fighting forces and let them fight a war in the manner they were trained.
The rescue of Jessica Buchanan, her fellow captive Poul Thisted and the killing of Sad-Ham Who-Sane is a prime example of what our Navy Seals are all about; that is if they are left to their own resources and training. It is when the politicians get involved that it turns into a “Chinese fire drill”.
The entire United States of America and all of its citizens regardless of political persuasion are extremely proud of the Navy Seals and the mission they accomplished last night and for all of their exemplary performance as defenders of the USA.
From a Jar Head to the Seals – Semper Fi brothers . What you are doing is giving the patriots of our country a shot in the arm.
