The U.S. Coast Guard Role in Law Enforcement and Piracy

RADM Salerno, the Assistant Commandant for Marine Safety, Security, and Stewardship

at The Unofficial CG Blog, Dealing with Piracy, the Coast Guards on it about U.S.C.G. RADM Salerno's testimony to the Subcommittee on Surface Transportation and Merchant Marine Infrastructure, Safety, and Security. I posted on this earlier but Erickson has some good insider info on the Coast Guard's role to
“Deter, disrupt, and suppress piracy in order to support UN Security Council resolutions, protect global maritime commerce, prevent future attacks, enhance maritime security, and secure freedom of navigation for the benefit of all nations.”

I'll be keeping tabs on this story, my post with previous experience transiting the GoA is here: Escorts for Group Transits about the lack of response from various organizations.
