Obama Seeks "Fuller Understanding" of What Happened in Algeria Siege
Reuters ^ | Saturday, January 19, 2013 | Matt Spetalnick

Posted on 01/19/2013 4:02:40 PM PST by kristinn

President Barack Obama offered on Saturday to provide any assistance the Algerian government needs after a deadly hostage siege at a desert gas plant and said the United States was seeking a "fuller understanding" from Algerian authorities of what took place there.

"The thoughts and prayers of the American people are with the families of all those who were killed and injured in the terrorist attack in Algeria," Obama said in his first comments on the hostage crisis.

Obama's written statement was issued by the White House after the Algerian army carried out a dramatic final assault to end a siege by Islamist militants in which 23 hostages were killed, many of them believed to be foreigners.

The statement made no mention of Americans who were caught up in the hostage crisis.

What’s to understand? Terrorists take hostages. Terrorists kill hostages. Army kills terrorists. Terrorist leaders get away. Obama perplexed. Islamists unpredictable.

Same strategy as all of the attacks... (need more time to screw around and avoid the truth) seeking a fuller understanding of what happened (so that I can ignore it and I can’t believe that muslims won’t give me a break with this crap)

He stood with the Muslims, just as he said he would do, when the winds shifted against them. Knowing they had the great Satan in their corner, they did what armed Muslims always do. Raped, pillaged and killed the infidel.

Not understanding why he does not understand his ‘success’. He did what he said he would do and they did what history shows they will do.

Simple.

Translation of the terms “fuller understanding: “I need time to see with whom taxpayer funds should be lavished so as to achieve maximum harm to American interests.”

“Obama perplexed”

He’s a great actor who is, no doubt, complicit in the hostages death since he probably armed the terrorists who took them hostage.

"He’s a great actor who is, no doubt, complicit in the hostages death since he probably armed the terrorists who took them hostage."

Yes, there is a good chance that the US armed and trained the terrorists. Obama's war in Libya was his opening gambit to establish the Greater Caliphate and the cancer is spreading all over North Africa and the Middle East.

>>> (Obama) to provide any assistance the Algerian government needs after a deadly hostage siege at a desert gas plant

More the famous ‘leading from behind’ example.

FBI was sent to Benghazi how many days later, and only stayed less than 24 hrs to ‘investigate’? One month after, sensitive documents were still lying about.

Here's a fuller understanding of Benghazi...

Three Facts

Fact One:

1) Only the POTUS can authorize a CBA (cross border authority) command for a rescue mission in a foreign nation.

Plus Fact Two:

2) No rescue mission was attempted.

Equals Fact Three:

3) 0bama turned his back on 41 State Dept. and CIA employees refusing to issue a CBA command and went to bed so he could go to Las Vegas the next day.

...but you'll never see that in the MSM.

When Obama got elected in 2008 I remember telling my kids that the office of President should never be occupied by a person in need of ‘on the job training’. Here we are in 2013 and he hasn’t learned a damned thing. If course, it may be he doesn't care or he's just plain stupid. Perhaps he's evil or can't see reality over his ideology. In any case, he's dangerous and his second term has just begun. God save America from this man and the people he surrounds himself with.

What! He didn’t jump to make political points for his personal agenda by standing on the dead bodies of those hostages?

He let a crisis go to waste...... probably because he couldn’t blame it on law abiding white people.

This is the same crap Obama has been peddling over Sandy Hook. He needed a fuller understanding on that too.

He decided to ban weapons and wipe out the 2nd amendment as a result, that is he will after a couple months of smears and demonization of good people.

Now in Algeria, he is stumped because he probably supplied the weapons to the bad guys.

That is probably what the “fuller understanding” probably is.

Move along, nothing to see here.
