How the SEALS did it.

Post by RoniPasta on Mon Apr 13, 2009 9:31 pm

We were discussing this in class today and we were all wondering how those Navy SEALS managed to kill three pirates at once without giving them the chance to kill the hostage (not to mention the type of lifeboat they were in provided almost complete cover) Here's what I learned:


Now, Sunday night, they were 25 or so yards from their targets, waiting.
Their mission, fraught with risk for the hostage, was one that SEAL snipers are trained to do, Couch said.
The opportunity arrived.
The three hostage-takers were observed with their heads and shoulders all exposed at once, said Vice Adm. William Gortney, commander of U.S. naval forces in the region.
Three shots rang out from the SEALs.
Three pirates were dead or rapidly dying.
Phillips was found safe, his hands bound. Back home in Burlington, Vt., Andrea Phillips sent the message to her husband that "your family is saving a chocolate Easter egg for you, unless your son eats it first."
