Hostage Crisis in Algeria Includes 7 Americans

Al Qaeda affiliated group claims to have kidnapped 41 foreigners after attack on gas field

Sky News reports that Prime Minister David Cameron held an emergency meeting following news that a hostage crisis is underway at a British Petroleum gas field in Algeria.

According to Reuters, an al Qaeda affiliated group claims to have taken 41 hostages, including seven Americans, Wednesday morning at a British Petroleum gas field:

An al Qaeda affiliated group said the raid had been carried out because of Algeria’s decision to allow France to use its air space for attacks against Islamists in Mali, where French forces have been in action against al Qaeda-linked militants since last week.

The attack in southern Algeria also raised fears that the French action in Mali could prompt further Islamist revenge attacks on Western targets in Africa, where al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) operates across borders in the Sahara desert, and in Europe.

    Carter would run over and build a house for a poor misunderstood Muslim radical. Obama would tell him he didn’t build it, and neither would do anything about the violence or American hostages, because neither is up for re-election.

    All Reagan had to do to free the Iran hostages was get elected. His reputation preceded him.

    MONITORING

    1. We are monitoring the Situation.

    We already know about this and we may do something about it, but in the meantime,let’s move on to the next item of business.

    2. We are carefully Monitoring the situation.

    To date, we have not done a lot about this problem, but it looks as if it could become serious, so to cover our arse, we are going to do something about it now.

    3. We will monitor the situation.

    This is something new and unexpected which requires a bit of thought,so this should give us a little time to group our thoughts.

    4. We will carefully monitor the situation.

    Play this cool because at present we do not know the answer and it could be tricky, fortunately no one has mentioned this problem before, so we better watch it just in case it happens again. If it does, reply with No.2.

    N.B. Avoid using the PAST TENSE when using the term “MONITORING.”

    @Sparks…

    Yep. The hostage kabuki theater in Benghazi was panned by critics, so it reopened with a different troup in Algeria. And Hillary is nearby in Ivory Coast to prompt those who might forget their lines.

    Together with the French in an overseas contingency operation, NASA will make the Religionists of Peace feel better about themselves. Then voila! their “guests” will be returned unharmed to their jobs in the renewable energy sector. After their guns are banned of course.

    I’m thinking Barrys already wired the money to an islamists account.

    He’ll then send Hillary over and act like he negotiated a deal, then in turn send EPA lawyers over to find out what BP did to the environment drilling for natural gas that made the islamists protestors so mad.
    Then file an EPA complaint against BP with the UN.

    Or he could send Carter over to promise them food and kerosene for their people, which will in turn be used by the warlords and armies to oppress their people even more.

    Well it looks like we now have an answer to what a government won’t do when dealing with terrorists…..negotiate.

    Obama and his pacifists bootstomping morons just don’t get it.

    Terrorists don’t want to be freinds with us, they hate us, thus the reason for the kidnapping, or does this dumbshit think friends kidnap friends, murder and torture them out of love and kindness.

    You can’t deal with these types of asshats, NK and his failure with Iran should be a ballbat to this numbskulls ideology.
    But then again when you think failure is an accomplishment its no wonder the dumbshit is clueless.
