Yes great interview, what is completely wrong, the interviewer, just like media talking about the pirate as a “kid”, typical of the media trying to twist things around, but Capt. corrects him right the way; good for him, we need to do the same with the media.

this man i just sailed with under his command – disregarded lots of nearmisses i brought to his office he said they were not valid – besides a criminal he is nothing else desregarding basic safety coast gurd should look closely at how many people he’s put in jeopardy

The Captain was ignored nine warnings to keep away from his position -He ignored the experts and his officers and put them in real danger -He did not himself overpower the Somali pirate -And He never (he says so himself) offer himself for anything -He was stupid and led them to the life boat -Once the Somalis had their man safe they overpowered him and took him! Not a captain’s duty. If they shoot me they will be looking into his eyes! LOL
