NYT Report Questions FBI’s Role in Pirate Case That Resulted in Murder

WASHINGTON — A New York Times story is questioning the actions of the FBI in connection with the four-day standoff with pirates off the Somalia coast that ended with all four crew members aboard a 58-foot yacht being murdered.

The Times reported that an F.B.I. hostage-rescue negotiator aboard the U.S.S. Sterett Naval ship was skeptical that two pirates who came aboard were serious about negotiating.

The Times reported the Americans subsequently held the two and sent word back to the yacht to send over someone serious about talking. The Times said what happened after is in dispute.

The paper reported that a fight broke out among the leaderless pirates, who may have feared being attacked by the Navy warships. The paper also wrote that “one person who has talked to associates of the pirates said their leader had told them that if he did not return, they should kill the hostages, though American officials say they do not know that to be the case.”
