Where is our government?
They're all at the carnival.
ATHENS, Greece (AP) Greek authorities have arrested the captain of a boat that is part of a Gaza-bound flotilla trying to deliver humanitarian aid to the Palestinian territory, officials said Saturday.
The "Audacity of Hope" has been moored at a Greek naval station. Its crew of four, two British and two American citizens, was forbidden to leave the boat. The British Embassy intervened and while they were then allowed to leave the boat, the crew and the passengers chose to stay on board, Hirschmann said.
"Where is the American embassy in all this?" she said, adding that U.S. authorities had not responded to passengers' calls for assistance. The U.S. Embassy wasn't immediately available for comment.
