The Pentagon says a team of Navy SEALs has liberated a civilian oil tanker that had been taken over by Libyan militants. This is file video of a Navy SEALs training exercise, preparing for just this sort of operation. The Navy says President Obama approved of the Sunday night mission. SEALs boarded and took control of the commercial tanker "Morning Glory" in the Mediterranean Sea, near Cyprus. The Navy says three armed Libyans had held the ship and its cargo for several days. Officials say the ship's oil belongs to the Libyan government and is on its way back to port. No one was hurt in the operation.
