It is a fundamental mistake to see the enemy as a set of targets. The enemy in war is a group of people. Some of them will have to be killed. Others will have to be captured or driven into hiding. The overwhelming majority, however, have to be persuaded. — Frederick Kagan
The Somali “pirates” are simply a ragtag bunch that are actually trying to defend their country’s waters from poachers from other countries. In other words, trying to keep what is legally theirs.
You’d never know that from the “media”.
To keep the hoax alive, you need actors, even if they aren’t exactly local. I guess Johnny Depp wouldn’t make a convincing Somali pirate.

My favorite quote from the article:
Adan told Osman he had no regrets. “You know, western guys they think the Africans are fools. But we have discovered we are not fools. We are much cleverer than the western people. We are fooling them, but they think they are fooling us.”
Once more, the media hoaxes are usually done in plain sight.

Researcher Cactus on the now defunct liberty forums from 2004. Tons of interesting material in this thread. It will keep you reading for hours (if you haven’t been convinced enough by now)
and many thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, of people who work in related industry would also be in on this without ever letting slip.
The hoaxsters control the popular media and the courts. Where would such a whistleblower go to be listened to? Look how much I have said and still the skeptics abound. Why do you think the lone whistleblower in the so-called nuke factory is going to go any further? Besides all those workers are security bonded and processed through the judicial very fast if they become unmanageable. You know, sometimes I wonder how many silent people out there have seen the truth clearly in front of their eyes and have kept silent for decades. Imagine how these people must feel to read the truth here and now.

Simon has a good post on the background to the Nuke hoax:
At this point, I feel compelled to add some historical background to the nuke hoax. Since NONE of the available film clips of “exploding atom bombs” look real – and were all probably crafted in the LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN STUDIOS (see last section of this article) – we need to understand how exactly all of this gigantic hoax played out, what with the many scientists we’ve heard about working within the “MANHATTAN PROJECT” and so forth.
