Making the news once again are the SEALs which, according to reports, conducted a hostage rescue in Somalia yesterday.  The SEALs assaulted the compound where they took fire.  According to reports, 9 gunmen were killed.  The hostages, American Jessica Buchanan, and Poul Thisted of Denmark, were captured last October while working for a Danish refugee council’s de-mining unit.  According to President Obama: “The United States will not tolerate the abduction of our people, and will spare no effort to secure the safety of our citizens and to bring their captors to justice,” Obama said in a statement. “This is yet another message to the world that the United States of America will stand strongly against any threats to our people.”
