The Truth Behind the SEAL Take Down of the Somali Pirates and Obama’s Incompetence

crew-223Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

And another person to the Obama body bag collection. The author, Dr. Jack Wheeler was murdered shortly after he wrote about Obama’s failure and inability to command.


Now that the movie, “Captain Phillips” about the Maersk Alabama hijacking by Somali pirates is out, it is time to inform the public about some facts of that event that haven’t been made public before.

***Attention***CNN using White House talking points, interesting none the less particularly when they get to the panels.

Believe it or not this even passed as being true as written, and of course I don’t believe much if anything that Snopes cranks out.


The following article of facts regarding the incident was written by Dr. John “Jack” Wheeler.

Dr. Wheeler was a man of honor: a West Point graduate, a Vietnam veteran, and the man who was the driving force behind financing the construction of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. He fought long and hard for the dignity and honor of the fallen Vietnam War soldiers.

See Dr. Wheelers amazing resume at the bottom of the page.

The New Your Times covers the action well here.

Now here’s the story as written by Jack Wheeler that was suppressed by the media: 

All of us need to raise our glasses the highest to the Navy SEALs who popped those three Somali pirates.

And I’m sure you want to hear the real story of what happened especially because there is a revolting opportunistic and cowardly side to it.


Why, for example, did it take SEAL Team Six (aka DEVGRU, Navy Special Warfare Development Group) Over 36 hours to get to the scene?

Because President Obama refused to authorize the SEAL deployment for those 36 hours, during which the OSC – The on scene commander, Cmdr. Frank Castellano of the USS Bainbridge – repeatedly requested them.

Cmdr. Castellano is a very, very mature and experienced commanding officer and is rock solid in his decisions.

Entire article below.

Once the SEALs arrived – parachuting from a C-17 into the ocean near the ship – Obama then imposed Rules of Engagement (ROE) specifying the SEALs could not do anything unless the life of the hostage, Captain Richard Phillips, was in “imminent” danger.

Thus, when Capt. Phillips attempted to escape by jumping off the lifeboat into the ocean, the SEAL snipers had all four pirates (one later surrendered) sighted in and could have taken them out then and there – but they could not fire due to Obama’s ROE restrictions.

When the SEALs approached the lifeboat in a RIB (rigid-hull inflatable boat) carrying supplies for Capt. Phillips and the pirates, the pirates fired upon them.

Not only was no fire returned due to Obama’s ROE, but as the pirates were shooting at the RIB, SEAL snipers on the Bainbridge had them all dialed in. Again, no triggers were pulled due to the ROE.

Two specific rescue plans were developed by Cmdr. Castellano and the SEAL teams.  Obama personally refused to authorize them.

After the second refusal and days of dithering, Cmdr. Castellano decided he had the Operational Area and OSC authority to “solely determine risk to hostage” and did not require any further approval by the president. He took unilateral action on Sunday, April 12, 2009.

Four hours later, the White House is informed that three pirates are dead and Capt. Phillips has been rescued unharmed.

Then a White House press release was immediately issued, giving credit to the president for his “daring and decisive” behavior that resulted in such success.

Obama has absolutely no military knowledge or experience whatsoever.

He demanded decisional control over the entire hostage drama to the last detail.

All actions required his personal approval.

He dithered like a coward while the world laughed at our warships flummoxed by four illiterate teenagers with worn-out AKs in a lifeboat.

Only when the Navy Commander decided to ignore his Pantywaist-in Chief and take action and responsibility himself, were the incredible skills of the SEALs put into play.

That Obama could cynically and opportunistically claim that his “bold” “calm” “tough” leadership was responsible should remind everyone that not a single action, not a single word of this man can be trusted.

He is bereft of honesty and moral character. OBAMA is a complete Zero.

We the People must raise our glasses hig and full of pride and gratitude to Navy Commander Frank Castellano, the Navy SEALs for their incredible competence, and our military.

What a low-life, lying, racist, Muslim, Marxist, Manchurian coward we have running our government. OBAMA is a disgrace to the office.

He served three presidents as an aide and advisor — Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush, for whom he was a special assistant to the Secretary of the Air Force and a military consultant.

Jack Wheeler was a graduate student at the Harvard Business School when he was recruited to be an advisor to the president regarding military tactics.

He was a man of integrity and served on the General Staff at the Pentagon.

Shortly after writing this article, he was mysteriously murdered sometime between Dec. 28th and 31st in 2010
and his body was dumped in a dumpster in Newark, Delaware.

Wheeler had homes in Washington, D.C. and New Castle, Del.

  1. Have just seen the USS Zumwalt (the world’s biggest unintentional submarine /wallowing floating target). here in San Diego. It’s become a local joke (even with its crew -albeit God help any of them caught laughing)

    The lunatics are running the US Navy. Obama’s daddy, his step=daddy, and his political mentor (Frank Davis)- who taught him that America must be destroyed – are ALL looking up from hell and smiling. Their bonnie little brat-boy has done exceptionally well in their eyes.

  2. To Anon from J.C. Show some balls and prove me wrong. I clearly stated in the article that Jack Wheeler was murdered. Try following the sourcing. If you don’t have the guts to say who you are, you are no longer invited to comment here. I’m tossing you in the Spam Box where you belong.
    The Jack Wheeler who authored this story was not murdered.

  3. I happen to have watched the movie “Captain Phillips” recently, and I was disappointed. The part of the whole story that I remember best is watching the TV, for DAYS, wondering, “Why don’t they do something??” Then the SEALS arrived (I assumed Obama had sent them), and STILL nothing happened for days, as I watched screaming at the TV. I also remember the Usurper in Chief’s announcement, proudly claiming credit for the success of this rescue. But by then, I knew. It was early in his term, and I assumed, when the piracy and kidnapping happened, that our leaders and military would do what was required. When the incident was over, I knew that we had a weak, cowardly Commander in Chief, and that Americans were going to let that behavior pass, as was our military.

    Thank you for the article, Dr. (and for all of your articles.

    @Anon: I’d like to hear the basis you have for making the statement you did about the fate of Dr. Wheeler. And if he wasn’t murdered, he certainly could have been, and I firmly believe that people who threaten Mr. O have met that fate – without a doubt.

  4. Most of us in the military or veterans know that this jOker is wild. America is doomed as long as he and his minions remain in power. Wake up America!

  5. The truth may be complex or simple

    My life have witnessed two incidents of this nature where commander failed like a 5 year old on military operation.

    Both incidents what is commander decisions are nothing more than fabricated commander decisions. After shits hit the wind, everyone covers the shit.

    One possibility is Obama name and position were used but his mouthpiece to serve a different objective than our national interests.

    When I stated that my boss in SMSgt had just declared his kingdom and does not take questions from lesser ranks. I was quickly arrested without charge, ostracized from everyone, and first sergeant and commander spread lies around military community that I was plotting to over throw us government.

    What is funny is that they honorably discharged me , while claiming I am a threat to national security.

    What is also worth crying is I can’t get any agency to do their job and defend this country against domestic enemy and treasonous idiots
