snipers are an interesting weapon of war--coldly methodical and deadly. but somebody is going to have to explain to me how sniping is accomplished from the rolling deck of a ship onto the rolling deck of another ship with such flawless accuracy as demonstrated today by our navy seals. three shots (at the very least) when even the slightest inaccuracy would guarantee disaster to the hostage already at gunpoint. (the dead wouldn't have even needed to move their aim).
hitting something at distance is hard enough. hitting something at distance while you're moving and they're moving seems more like miracle to me, though i know it can be no accident that captain phillips is free. i'm thinking there are at least three guys tonight who are deserving of quite the commendation.
