Skip to comments.Obama, Clinton Silent on Hostage Crisis
Posted on 01/17/2013 8:59:06 AM PST by yoe
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.
In fact, the only official word to come from the Obama administration is confirmation from the State Department that indeed Americans are being held hostage there.
"[W]e condemn in strongest terms the terrorist attack on British Petroleum personnel and facilities at In Amenas, Algeria earlier today. We are obviously closely monitoring the situation. Were in contact with Algerian authorities and our diplomatic counterparts in Algiers, as well as with BPs security office in London," said State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland in response to a reporter's question yesterday.

Obama "condemns in strongest terms"....but let just one person criticize Dr. Gates or Susan Snow or Trayvon Martin or charging the Black Panthers etc. with the obvious crime they were committing....ummm ummmmm.....Ambassador Chris Stevens and the other three Americans killed were White men......Obama is racist, he doesn't mess with the Black culture or Islam....is that about right?
Like Obama suddenly cares about white Americans overseas who are in firefights with Muslim extremists?
Nuland’s little reaction is code for:
I can’t find Hillary, again, and the president can not walk and chew gum at the same time either, while fundamentally transforming America.
If they were over there installing solar panels, Barky and Her Heinous would be all over it.
But they’re evil oilfield workers. Who cares.
Just another bump in the road.
Hey, they were there voluntarily, right?
The Democrat leadership follows The 2H Rule.
“We only care if it HELPS us, or we HAVE to.”
Obama didn’t care about losing 4 Americans in Benghazi, why should he worry about only 2 in Algeria?
He has been a busy boy taking away our Constitutional rights with Executive Orders .
AND, they’re probably white Americans.
When two people who are vying for the center of the universe are so conspicuously absent, to an act of war, they define incompetence and dereliction of duty.
They’re still trying to figure out which part of the constitution to blame before making statements.
Murdered Ambassador = 1st Amendments fault
Murdered Children = 2nd Amentments fault
They’re trying to find their angle.
obama supports islamists, every time, everywhere.
His so-called potestations are taqiyya.
He is the most prolific mass murderer in American history.
They don’t care. They would rather have Americans and other civilized people killed than offend their bearded buddies.
Remember what they did in Benghazi? They gave up Americans rather than annoy their bosom bearded savage buddies.
Too busy with E.O.'s against Americans, blood clots, fainting in public, etc".
Pretty sad when all you get is Panetta...: Just you wait, boy, we gonna!
I guess its a little too messy for Zee Rho and secretary whereami?
what a buch of absolute clown losers....
Look for Hillary to be too busy with this latest crisis to be able to testify next week. That, or she’ll pass out again.
Obama will deem this workplace violence like he did the murders at Ft. Hood.
Unless the company they are working for padded Obama’s evil pockets, those hostages don’t exist. Probably weren’t union workers anyway,,so the evil won has even more disdain for them.
BP gave Obama $20,000,000,000.00. Still doesn't matter.
.... They are just waiting for the spin doctors to redact the information that Al-Qaeda was involved in the incident.
It is important for Obama's New World Order (Washington and the Obamabots) to believe that AQ has been decimated and on the run as a result of the efforts of the mighty One aka Obama. They will insist that there is no "Proof" and "We are unable to Confirm" that Al-Qaeda was actually involved and will keep up that mantra until the media cools and the public get bored of the news story. Once the talking points have been solidified ... then they will come out of hiding.
