One may well ask what the US navy is doing at this point. right now, the pirates and their hostage are surrounded, and other pirates are on their way to the scene. It would be a simple matter for the navy to take all of them. Under the law, that is our right; no action by congress is needed. That means that the delay is all Obama. Will our navy really sit there and do nothing while this American captain is held? Maybe Obama will propose a resolution at the UN.
