Hostages reportedly killed as
Algerian desert standoff ends

Washington Post, by Anthony Faiola and Michael Birnbaum

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/19/2013 10:46:53 PM

LONDON — Defying global calls for restraint, the Algerian military staged a final assault Saturday against Islamist militants at an energy complex in the Sahara, culminating a four-day siege that left some two dozen hostages dead and spawned fears of a resurgent al-Qaeda in North Africa. Eleven kidnappers and seven hostages died in Saturday’s operation targeting the remaining militant stronghold at the vast facility run by London-based BP, Norway’s Statoil and Algeria’s state energy giant, according to Algeria’s state news service and France’s Agence France-Presse.

The western left-media siamese twins are not going to like this, as they are now cheated out of one of their favorites, the long running guerrilla theater that is the usual main event of one of these dull 7th century butcheries.

Bad for business and a lost opportunity to advance the interests of the Crazies.

The Algerians certainly dealt with the terrorists. Unfortunately, they seem to have dealt with the hostages as well.

Not very well thought out.

I rather think the Algerian military acted decisively and fast, no diddling around. They saved a bunch of the hostages, lost some, killed most of the bad guys, if not all by the time they are done rounding up the loose ends, and didn´t negotiate with terrorists. What would the French, Brits, U.S. have done? Capitulate to the terrorist´s requests, or eventually have gone in and done the same thing as the Algerians? And the terrorists were laying bombs everywhere to blow the place up. My kudu´s go to the Algerian military. Job well done from my perspective.

A good read is Andrew McCarthy on this at National Review.
"This week, while the guys the senator and the Obama administration aligned us with in Libya (and would like to align us with in Syria) were busy taking Americans and other foreigners hostage in Algeria, in addition to using Qaddafi’s arsenal to fight the French in Mali, McCain was working his magic in Cairo."
Except now they are dead thanks to Lindsay Graham, McCain, Obama, Hillary, Panetta and a crazy pro muslim mideast policy.

Do you mean to tell me that this administration is taking no action? It is not promising to put some American in jail for a video? It is not blaming the people working at that facility as terror...oops... man-disaster-provoking, anti-green monsters? Gitmo! Halliburton! Something? I´m sure they will come up with something better than terrorists from the head-hacking religion doing what they do.

People may not like the results with respect to dead hostages - but this is the way to go - make no mistake that the Algerians have spoken loud and clear to people that might perpetrate future acts of terrorism - "We will be coming to kill you shortly." Any hostages that can be saved - just a bonus. How else do you deal with this? Maybe spend a few weeks getting a "fuller understanding" of the situation?

I´m sure Obama will track down the terrorists and bring them to justice....just like he did in Benghazi. Benghazi, what´s that?

Also, I´m comforted that we have Al Qaeda on the run! What a great president.

FTA: "...culminating a four-day siege that left some two dozen hostages dead and spawned fears of a resurgent al-Qaeda in North Africa." Being interpreted as: confirming the growing dominance of AQ in North Africa, and the Middle East in general. Hint: AQ and the MoBros are Tweedle-dum and Tweedle-dee.

The bloody battles between waring factions in Algeria for well over a decade but none involved major attacks on their economic lifeline in the oil and gas sector...Agree with #13, terrorists now have confirmation that the govt doesn´t negotiate and can´t find the word standoff in their dictionary.

BTW, 650+ workers at the facility were rescued, and the plant will probably be back on line within a couple of days...

#4 and #13 have it right. 32 tangos dead and 23 hostages dead. The odds worked out better than doing nothing and letting the tangos live or worse yet, negotiating with them, paying ransom and losing the hostages anyway. The next batch of terrorists will think twice about kidnapping people.

Obama makes the expected stupid statement about preventing this kind of thing in the future - totally impossible unless the workers are heavily armed and can fight off the tangos before they take control. But that doesn´t agree with his delusional philosophy.

Are our embassy guards supplied with ammunition yet or are we just waiting for the next attack and more dead Americans?

Yes, once again 0bama puffs out his chest and says he will get to the bottom of this. But like Benghazi, there will be no investigation, Hillary will not testify, 0bama moves on and the whole rest of the world continues to kill Americans, because they know we are weak and uninterested, and 0bama once again will do nothing. He is too busy planning his coronation and all them extravagant parties.

If I´m beginning to detect a pattern that we won´t do anything in the face of these terrorist acts of aggression, I´m pretty sure the terrorists are, too. I hate to say it, but it´s only a matter of time before the stakes will get a lot higher because of our inaction.

If the "We need to negotiate with the terrorists" crowd had their way, it is a good bet that the 650 survivors would have been slaughtered and the facility destroyed. The murder/slaughter of the helpless hostages had started before the Algerian military made their assault. After the Algerian military gained control of the facility, they found mutilated bodies and explosives positioned to destroy the facility. Only fast action by the Algerian military prevented the al-Qaeda barbarians from completing this atrocity!
When reporting these al-Qaeda atrocities, the media’s use of terms like "executed" or "killed" is obsene! Executed implies that the victim was guilty of a capital crime – blatantly false. Killed, although better, leaves open the question whether the victim’s death was intended or accidental – there was nothing accidental about it. Murder or slaughter is the proper term for this carnage.

It takes time to rig a huge facility like that to blow it up, which is likely the reason the rag heads were trying to negotiate over hostages, they were simply buying time to do what they really came to do... destroy property and kill infidels. Seems to me the Algerian military did the right thing, otherwise they may have lost the ALL the facilities and ALL the hostages.

As they said on the Belmont Club, when America was at the top of her game and a power to be feared, she could pull off elegant hi-tech hostage rescues in which all the innocent were saved and the bad guys were captured to be brought to trial. Those days are over. This is what it´s going to be like from now on. Countries without America´s awesome hardware and superb training are going to launch bloody, "shoot everything that moves" attacks and the survival of hostages will be a matter of luck. Don´t go to foreign countries thinking that if you get in trouble, a Navy SEAL outfit is just a 911 call away - at best, you´re dependent on Third World army and police forces, and at worst, you´re on your own.

The Algerians dealt with this situation by themselves and decisively. They sent a message to the world and the terrorists that they don´t play games. Hostages were killed, but I think there was no way for that to have been avoided. I suspect the ones who were killed might have preferred the quick death they had to being taken to central Africa where they probably would have succumbed to disease in the next few years or months.

We should let the poor guy alone to enjoy his second term without a bunch of burdensome national and international problems and ´negativity´. Somebody else can deal with all this (and clean it up if there´s anything left) after he´s ´finished´ with us.

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
