The story the mainstream media longed to write….
Obama rescues Captain, Navy kills civilians
Demonstrating his amazing international virtuosity today, President Barack Obama walked across the water to rescue an American ship captain who had become separated from his vessel when he went fishing with local Muslims. Unfortunately, the US Military overreacted and in what can only be called “premeditated murder” shot and killed three of the Muslim fishermen.
President Obama apologized to the world, and to Muslims in particular, for the “wanton murder of three innocent fishermen.” Asked about reports that the Muslims had allegedly tried to seize the Captain’s ship, Obama said that, “Americans have to be more appreciative of other cultures where they have a long and rich tradition of spreading the wealth around, a lesson for our greedy free-market obsessed citizens who have more rigid views of ownership.”
Protests against the American military broke out across the world, with looting and a dozen deaths reported. European leaders praised the president, while condemning the “needless deaths” of the Muslim seafarers.

And on the rescue, this Jarhead says, "Go Navy!"
