I see Thomas Jefferson isn't on there.He took it to some pirates, though, in North Africa-- "Halls of Tripoli."

Actually, the first kicker of Pirate Ass was George Washington, and he did it by signing a treaty with the King of Morocco who did the ass-kicking for him. That's the way to get her done! Morocco has been America's oldest friend and is our oldest treaty partner. Patrick
How about Teddy Roosevelt in the incident in Morocco immortalized in "The Wind and the Lion"? The American Marines didn't kill The Raisuli himself (the Last of the Barbary Pirates and, after all, he WAS played by Sean Connery), but probably accounted for some of his men.
