Last week, I wrote a column about Donald Trump's CPAC speech in which I snarked at him for taking a hawkish stance against Somali pirates--I'm pretty sure he was the only GOP presidential hopeful to articulate his pirate policy. In light of today's grisly news about the four Americans killed by Somali pirates, though, maybe Trump was onto something. It sure hasn't hurt his poll numbers.
