I loved this email, from a reader:
What are your thoughts on all the hype suggesting that the pirates were about to kill the Captain?
It seems improbable that the pirates would commit suicide that way.
What’s more likely is that the SEALs got clear shots and took them (like any American would have done from 1620 until the Warren Court). All the rest is PC CYA for the upside-down world in which we live.
