We're getting word that pirates in Somalia are shipping ammunition and men to thirty hijacked vessels that remain under their control. They are also threatening to kill more captives. This, after the violent end to a hostage standoff that left four Americans dead. Maj. Gen. Tom Wilkerson, USMC (Ret), CEO of the U.S. Naval Institute, tells Federal News Radio if we do nothing more than what we're doing now, this will happen again.
