Captain Phillips

Question: How did the pirates trick the crew into thinking they would keep their promise when they make a deal to release Phillips in exchange for giving them their leader back?

Answer: They didn't exactly "trick" the crew, they just never intended to follow through on their promise. The crew has nothing to threaten the pirates with, the pirates have all the guns.


Question: Why didn't the US Navy want the pirates to get Phillips to Somalia? What were they afraid would happen?

Answer: They are afraid that once in Somalia, the pirates would be able to hide Phillips making rescue much more difficult.
