U.S. Navy Fights Back Against Somali Pirates

Somali pirates spot what looks like a large cargo ship in the dead of night and decide to attack. They fire on the ship -- only to discover that the "cargo ship" they've engaged in battle is actually the USS Nicholas, a guided-missile frigate. Oops!

As Rachel Maddow says in this clip, the Navy really is more than a job -- it's an adventure!
