Obama, Clinton Silent on Hostage Crisis (If they sacrificed a US Ambassador to Al Qaeda in Libya...)
Weekly Standard ^ | 1/17/13 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 01/17/2013 7:52:41 AM PST by jimbo123

At least two American hostages are being held hostage at a gas plant in Algeria, but there's been no word on unfolding the situation from either President Barack Obama or Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

If Hillary and Hussein sacrificed a US Ambassador to Al Qaeda in Libya, what makes anyone think they would care about the American oil workers held by Al Qaeda in Algeria?

Why would they speak up when THEY helped al Qaeda
giving them weapons, from Libyan MANPADS to
Fast&Furious Guns?

Obviously, the increasing terror is going
according to the White House and State Dept Plan,
from Algeria to Egypt to Syria to Mexico.

So the question should be:
Why is the Congress STILL enabling the treason 24/7?

Anything that makes Obama or Hilary look bad - no matter what the cost in human lives - must NOT be made public. They are swine.

These two are the lowest form of human.. incapable of recognizing their own failings when it is apparent to all others. If O isn’t impeached , the Clintons (Political animals) have won again.. and the Constitution is meaningless.

I presume you mean the Media who repeatedly shirk their duty and job when it comes to exposing faults in the Socialist party and their minions. Obama and Hillary certainly have proved time and again to be incompetent and over their heads, but a real Media would have exposed them long ago. Actually you do a discredit to swine - they are good for something (tasty bacon for one thing). The Media is better compared to a malignant cancer. Terminal if not removed from the body.

The situation is simple. The hostage-takers are racist and are only trying to make Obama look bad for his second inauguration.

Later this afternoon, Jay Carney will announce that Obama and Hillary “condemn this action in the strongest terms, that they are monitoring the situation and that they are deeply concerned,” and that’s it. Done!

Tonight, Chris Matthews will blame it on the racist angle.

Jon Stewart and Conan O’Brien will mock something Sarah Palin or Herman Cain did several years ago.

Tomorrow the New York Times will bury the story on page 43.

EXACTLY!

TREASON - in real-time, pre-meditated, in-your-face, unquestioned, ABETTED, unchecked, continuous, ongoing...

Here we go again.
One of the hostage taker demands is, safe passage to Libya.
Isn't that special?

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.

They are silent due to fevorishly denying requests to assist the hostages.

Purportedly the hostages and the terrorists are dead. The French and Algerians bombed them to free them. That takes care of any “hostage problem” for nobama and h. klintoon. Back to the golf course and to drinking excessively (respectively).

I was thinking of Obama and Hilary when I mentioned swine, but the term can be applied in a broad sweep to the Administration’s thugs. And the Media toadies.

They aren’t going to talk about it because they supplied the weapons to Libyan “rebels” aka Al Qaeda and now they are using them in Algeria.

The media will simply continue to ignore it.

Hillary has said “the situation is “very fluid”. Which means “I know nothing”.

Saw Hillary on the news yesterday talking about Mali and Algeria. She had these super thick glasses on, like shotglasses almost. Makes me wonder about the blindness rumors.

Lamestream-Drive-By Media Rule #1

There shall be howls of indignation when there is an opportunity to destroy republican(s), independents voting republican, Americans supporting the Constitution, supporting the Bill of Rights, supporting 2nd Amendment rights, Americans loving God and Jesus, and America.

Lamestream-Drive-By Media Rule #2

If howls of indignation should be or could be directed at democRATs or moslems for killing American children, see rule #1.

Lamestream-Drive-By Media Rule #3

If Americans and honest God loving People are doing good and protecting America and Americans, see rule #1.

Obama, Clinton Silent on Hostage Crisis >>>>>>>>>>>

They have to be. Algeria just told them to eff off.

Algeria does not negotiate with terrorists. They kill hostages and terrorists together, and then let G_d sort them out.Not a win/win situation for any politician.

But Reagan would have sent Delta or the Teams in way before this, in fact not caring about the Algerian government in the least.Obama wants to wait to see the butchers bill, and disempower America.
