Pointing Out Obama’s Pirate Problem

Mack Owens of Newport, RI, and a prolific writer in such periodicals as the Wall Street Journal, National Review, and the RI’s own Anchor Rising, points out Obama's problem in dealing with the piracy.

An excerpt:

When Somali pirates hijacked the U.S.-flagged Maersk Alabama this week and took 20 Americans hostage, President Barack Obama refused to comment. It seems that our new president is desperate to do everything he can to distance himself from his predecessor, which is why his team has launched a campaign to rebrand the War on Terror. The results are mystifying. "Overseas contingency operations" is the new name for the war, while "man-caused disasters" is a euphemism for terrorist attacks.

But read the whole thing.
