I'm going to differ with The Rhetorican* on the "Sub-Carter" call. President Carter was a submariner, but I don't think the pun intentional. Also, like a prosecutor with a case in front of him, can we rip BHO for not commenting? There is nothing substandard about waiting for facts. This is crucial in a military context, where pronouncements may lead to an Operational Security (OPSEC) violation.
There are plenty of Constitutional rubber chickens with which to flog the POTUS. Piling on over real-world ops looks gratuitous.
On this topic, the Secretary of Chuckling sounds so definite about 'ending' piracy, just like we 'ended' it a couple hundred years ago with Morocco. At what frequencey of 'ending' do we give up the charade? Navies keep piracy down to a managable level for insurers. And that's about it.
