More on Capt McKinney and her merry band of sailors

Becker reported the CNN version this morning. The Jerusalem Post version includes at least one additional detail: The boat was given permission to sail from Cyprus after telling authorities there that their destination was Egypt. I’m guessing that ship won’t be welcome in that port in the future.

I wish the Israeli Navy had just released her and her comrades on the spot. Not being completely heartless, I’d say they could have allowed them time to board the lifeboats or don life vests as the ship sank. But unfortunately they didn’t sink the ship, leaving it free to do the same again if they can find another port of departure.
