Somali Pirates: Down to Help Haiti Too

by Andrew Price

January 30, 2010
I'm not quite sure what to make of this news:
Spokesmen for the so-called "Somali pirates" have expressed willingness to transfer part of their loot captured from transnational boats and send it to Haiti...."The humanitarian aid to Haiti can not be controlled by the United States and European countries; they have no moral authority to do so. They are the ones pirating mankind for many years," said the Somali spokesman.
Zing! I can't tell if this is a pirate PR ploy or real philanthropy but either way, the aid can only help.
