Then By-God We Take it Back

As if the Somali pirates and the hunt for Somali pirates couldn't get any more interesting, we have the following incident:

The pirates boarded and seized the unarmed container ship, Maersk Alabama, taking 20 American sailors hostage on Wednesday. Although the crew managed to retake the ship within hours, the pirates were still holding the ship’s captain as they fled the ship in an unpowered lifeboat.

So honey, how was work today? Well, we got boarded by pirates, but don't worry, it was a only for a few hours. We took the ship back.

I want the full story on this.
