Posted on 01/17/2013 3:55:46 PM PST by ColdOne
Speaking from Rome, U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said the U.S. will take "all necessary and proper steps" in response to the attack and subsequent hostage crisis in Algeria.
Panetta called it a "terrorist act" and said "it is a very serious matter when Americans are taken hostage, along with others."
Yesterday, Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb made it clear that the targeting of Americans was intentional--that it was a way to send a message that the U.S. will "face the consequences" if they help the French fight Malian Islamists in southeast Algeria.

which means nothing
A firmly worded post-it note.
OOOOOH, tough talk, Like that response to the Benghazi attack.
Terrorists have NOTHING to worry coming from America. Our leadership is a bunch incompetant liberal twits.
Yup. Soothing words, sorry to the terrorists. etc This from the same clown who said “why would people need assault weapons?”
Proper response in what form? Is he going to unilaterally decide to send in troops? Are they sending in more SpecOps? You know, the guys that obama thinks are the guys in Call of Duty and Medal of Honor.
Pretty sad when a guy with a history like Panetta’s is the most aggressive stance on things.
What do you mean? I heard him say yadda,yadda, yadda!
Are you sure O doesn’t want to send in some corpsemen?
Will take? What specific actions has obama taken?
Leon I’m ready for the proper response...
Nuke them from orbit, it’s the only way to be sure.
they’re gonna blame algeria, and exonerate al queda.
(cough) Benghazi (cough)
Lets take it to the faculty lounge (aka the white house)and toss it around for a few weeks until it just dies..like Benghazi.
I bet that the response will be so clear to the terrorists that we can expect them to do it again any day now . . .
The message: “We don’t care! We are on your side in principle.”
Right...they will appoint a committee to analyze the situation; then they will formulate an opinion; then, they will write a white paper with recommendations; then they will submit it to higher authority for final review; and by the time any action is approved, all the hostages will have died of old age. Fools, All.
As far as I am concerned, everything about the Obama administration and his treasonist democrats.... is an ongoing “terrorist act”.
Terrorists love words. Gives them room for actions.

Hey , Panetta !! We’re still waiting for “a proper response “ to Benghazi !!
or did you already send a properly worded email to the Lybian ambassador .
You rememeber it .. Don’t you ? 9/11
Not that the date would have any siginficance to you , although the Mooselimbs have given it significance , ..again !
You know , the one that was casued by “ The Movie “ ~ not !
Thourghly investigated by FBI in 7 hours , 27 days after the fact ! ~ not !
The one where 4 Americans were murdered in cold blood
The incident where an American ambassador , the first one in 30 years was killed
You know , the one where people were ordered : “STAND DOWN”
The one where over 30 people were rescued , never to be heard of publicly again to tell us what happened
You know, the one that you watched from an above drone ‘in real time’
You know , the incident where people were ordered to : “STAND DOWN”
You know , the incident that preceeded the arrest of two officers who ignored the order to “Stand Down”
You know, the same incident that a Congressional committee is trying to get the Head of State Dept. to appear
You know , that incident that the Secretary of State couldn’t make the hearing because she had a pressing wine engagement in Australia
Its only been FOUR MONTHS and its already off your calendar of ‘things to do’.
Yeah , you continue to give a ‘proper response’
Your actions speak louder than your rhetoric
Leon Panetta’s son is a Navy intel guy.
Leon is type of guy who is OK with watching his son’s co-workers DIE in real time, on TV, over the course of an 8-hour engagement WITH a response team idling on the tarmac 90-minutes away.
Do you want THIS guy to “have your back”...?
All necessary steps should have been taken at Benghazi...they weren't....it was Hillary Clinton's call, or so you would think. Maybe it was Valerie Jarret's call...it wasn't Leon The "basic principle is that you don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what's going on; without having some real-time information about what's taking place,"what a dumb statement Panetta.. his call or was it. All work for do-nothing Obama of Coddle Islam fame. Hilary's foreign policy's are atrocious...she was in charge.
No, really! He will have a proper response for Algeria just as soon as he figures out his response to Bengahzi!
