Vitter Comments on Rescue of U.S. Cargo Ship Captain

U.S. Senator David Vitter today issued the following statement regarding yesterday's rescue of Captain Richard Phillips from Somali pirates by the U.S. Navy.

"What a wonderful Easter present. I congratulate the president for giving our Navy commanders the authority they needed, and the Navy for executing the rescue flawlessly. I hope we will now execute a broader solution to this piracy plague that is just as strong and effective," said Vitter.
