Default Second Time! Pirates attack U.S. cargo ship

This time, they failed to get aboard.

From Mike Mount
CNN Pentagon Producer

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Liberty Sun, a U.S.-flagged cargo ship bound for Mombasa, Kenya, was attacked Tuesday by Somali pirates, according to a NATO source with direct knowledge of the matter.
The pirates never made it onto the ship. The vessel is now being escorted by a coalition ship, still bound for Mombasa.
The source could provide no details on where the vessel was attacked but said it is suspected the pirates were based on a mother ship somewhere in the area.

I think it is time for our president to let our Navy do a little hunting.
