Cool story but fake. How did he get what would be classified information which is also intel?
Still a cool story.
Yeah. I liked this part (my emphasis): The FBI negotiators calmed the situation by informing the pirates of threatening weather as they could see storm clouds closing from the horizon, and offered to tow the life boat. The pirates agreed, and BAINBRIDGE took them under tow in their wake at 30 meters-- exactly 30 meters, which is exactly the distance the SEALs practice their shooting skills.
The downside, IF any part of it is true, is that it gives the Bad Guys (including those in Washington) info to counteract the rescue the next time.
