In the dark of night, Navy Seal Team 6 (the unit that killed Osama Bin Laden) pulled off a daring rescue mission in Somalia.  Two hostages were rescued from the Somalia pirates (one American, one Dane) with nine of them meeting their demise.  Via:

The hostage rescue was carried out by the same SEAL unit behind the operation in Pakistan last May that killed bin Laden, two U.S. officials said on condition of anonymity to discuss the operation. It was not clear if any members participated in both operations. The unit is the Naval Special Warfare Development Group, also known as SEAL Team 6.

One official said that the team parachuted into the area before moving on foot to the target. The raid happened near the Somali town of Adado.

I don't think there are enough adjectives to describe how bad ass this team is and what they mean to this country.
