Islamic Terrorists Attempt To Hijack Cruise Ship

I though this sounded a little fishy when I first saw it:

Pirates Attack Cruise Ship

MIAMI β€” Pirates fired a rocket-propelled grenade and machine guns Saturday in an attack on a luxury cruise liner off the east African coast, the vessel's owners said.

Two armed boats approached the Seabourn Spirit about 100 miles off the coast of Somalia and fired as the boats' occupants attempted to get onboard, ...

The ship outran them and changed its course.

"Our suspicion at this time is that the motive was theft," ...

I read it, the words "Achille Lauro" flashed through my mind, I thought about it a little and talked myself out of "jumping to conclusions." I should have poked around for more information. Fortunately Debbie Schlussel did. Go read her post, follow her links, and come back and tell me I'm wrong. You won't convince me, but tell me anyway.
