W.H. 'seeking clarity' in Algeria, Al Qaeda role unconfirmed
politico ^ | 1/17/13 | JENNIFER EPSTEIN

Posted on 01/17/2013 11:20:52 AM PST by ColdOne

The U.S. hasn't confirmed an Al Qaeda-affliliated group's claim that it perpetrated the attack. "We certainly heard reports of people taking responsibility, making claims of responsibility for this terrorist attacks but we have not been able to thus far confirm those claims," Carney said.

SNIP

Carney said. "I wouldn't want to say anything that turned out not to be true."

Why not, Carney? It never stopped you before.

The White House is protecting and arming al Qaeda while
attacking the US Constitution and Americans.

The world is truly upside down.

We are leading so far from behind that we need GPS help just to know what behind is last and how many miles it’s ahead of America.

My question is...isn’t that flag the Al Qaeda flag? first photo at link...

“seeking clarity?” Hardly, they're seeking a way to stall on admitting to anything until they can find a scapegoat on which to blame (preferably a “right-wing, nut job, pro-Israel Christian to blame!)

I've had a long recognized answer to the phenomenon you mention on Obama's priorities.

Hire only gays and lesbians for foreign assignment by the state department inside risky countries. Send all militants sodas in containers greater than 12 ounces. Label all schools, hospitals, places of christian and Hindu worship inside Islamic Nations as Planned Parenthood Facilities, thus ensuring adequate security staff. Traffic all arms to Islamic Militant Groups only after they pass a psychological test and thorough background check(no more extensive than the president though).

That should reduce the crisis factor by around 75%.

...everything is a crisis with Odungo..... the slow response is on purpose....PLUS he can’t control what is someone else’s operation (France). I’m thinking it’s a good thing he’s out of the picture, because everything this clown gets involved with turns to s***.

This must mean that all the Americans have been killed and they’re trying to find a way not to blame Al Qaeda.

I see that Obama’s Benghazi Task Force - ‘stand down and let ‘em die’, crew is on the job.

Don’t worry, Carney , America is used to your lies. There is no penalty for Obama’s lies, so stay on course.

There are a couple of versions but this is the most common...
I don't know if true but this is the flag which Muhammad himself (piss be upon him)carried in to battle

Looks about the same .. I cant read the chicken scratch...

This is too bizarre for words. The French, who certainly know more about Algeria than we do, know who is behind this, even though it embarrasses them to admit that they slacked off on Algeria after the civil war (actually, Islamic jihad) of about 10 years ago seemed to come to an end. The reason it seemed to come to an end was, as Bush himself said, that the jihadis were drawn off to fight the US in Iraq and Afghanistan. But AQ was obviously building up its “adminstrative headquarters” there, even though it was attacking elsewhere.

And they’re back in full form now. I read some articles in the foreign press that said that the reason AQ had been able to overwhelm this large facility so easily was that the companies and the government had cut back on security after things seemed to calm down.

I still don’t see why Obama is protecting AQIM (Al Qaeda in the Islamic Mahgreb, i.e., North Africa), which has launched attacks all over the place. I did notice, however, that AQ thought its safe haven would be Libya, so maybe Obama actually is not acting as randomly as one might think. He really does seem to be on their side.

This place is 100 miles or so from the Libya border and you can be sure that’s the home base of the terrorists.

Here’s the location on Google Maps:

They are also attempting to find a way to divert the many questions about why American forces were left out of the rescue and only used "Algerian" and other Muslims to "rescue (non-Muslim) hostages, who just happen to get killed during their rescue!""

Why were not our crack Special Force "ready rescue" teams involved, why do we chose to depend on our "host countries" for "security" ala Benghazi "rescue of four (4) dead Americans", two (2) of which defied orders not to get involved in saving Ambassador Chris Stevens and his aide????

No answers, more subterfuge.

Your link - Escaped: Stephen McFaul, from Belfast, Ireland, is the first freed hostage to be identified. He calls his brother moments before he was captured to say 'al-Qaeda have got me'

Sure, as if he'd know anything. I'm thinking it was Tibetan monks.

Sometimes it takes a while for the US government to figure out how to blame Americans for Islamic terrorist incidents.

They used the obscure youtube video excuse already. Maybe one of the American workers said something about child molestation in the Islamic world and made the Muzzies kill them.
