U.S. Navy SEALs have rescued an American and a Danish hostage from Somali pirates after they had been held for months. The same SEAL team that raided Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan carried out this raid, the AP reports. President Obama seemed to refer to the raid ahead of Tuesday’s State of the Union address, telling Panetta, “Good job tonight.”
Obama is seen in this White House photo phoning Jessica Buchanan’s father John last night to inform him of her rescue.
