Skip to comments.Pirates: Yacht to make landfall in Somalia (Obama surrenders; no hostage rescue)
Posted on 02/20/2011 3:30:03 AM PST by jimbo123
Pirates are now saying the yacht hijacked from a SoCal couple will make landfall in Somalia on Sunday, which may lessen the chance of a rescue at sea.
The pirates took control of the yacht Quest on Friday in the Arabian Sea off the coast of Somalia.
The Quest belongs to Jean and Scott Adam, two members of the Del Rey Yacht Club in Marina Del Rey. The Newport Beach couple has been sailing around the world since 2004 on their yacht, posting updates on their website. The trip was part adventure, part ministry, as they handed out Bibles along the way.
Two other Americans were captured along with Jean and Scott Adams, though they have not yet been identified.

I’m sorry, but anyone sailing off of Somalia as these folks were have got to have Biden for brains. Prayers for them.
Earlier this week a pirate told an Associated Press reporter in Somalia that pirates would target Americans in retaliation for the sentencing. The pirate, who identified himself by the name Hassan, said Americans would suffer “regrettable consequences.”
Pirates have recently tied hostages upside down and dragged them in the sea, locked them in freezers, beaten them and used plastic ties around their genitals, the commander of the European Union anti-piracy force, Maj. Gen. Buster Howes told AP this month.
Thus be onto morons...
One should view that South Park episode lest you get any notions about having fun in the sun in Somalia.
Too bad they aren't SEIU or UAW members.
Indeed prayers for them anyway.
But...I think in many ways it demonstrates how little American’s understand the world around them.
How very,very dangerous and hostile the uncivilized world is.
Gee whiz, then I'd feel sympathy for the pirates. Those folks are real thugs.
Why waste time rescuing some rich honkies! /sarcasm
Now if they had been friends of Valerie Jarette ....
These people were giving out Bibles when they got caught. That explains Obama lack of interest in rescueing them.
Obama will never attack a fellow raghead.
Reagan would never have this problem because the the first time these jerk offs took a ship, Reagan would have sent a flight of F111s down there and bombed the bat crap out of them.
“Obama surrenders to muslims. Four American hostages to be held in Somalia.”
Of course he did. These people are white and Christian. He’s probably high fiving.
The State Department has their website that tells you all about the no-nos when it comes to where to visit. Given that we closed up our Embassy in Somalia way back in 1991, that tends to be a bad sign right there. Muffy and Thurston want to go yachting, they should stick to either the Caribbean or La Jolla and not Mogadishu.
No kidding, I won’t drive in most of Broward or Dade County armed to the teeth and these rich fools keep sailing into this mess?
They are being tortured and Obama knows it.
And the two women are being raped in typical muslim fashion.
Nailed it!!! Stupid is as stupid does.
