Skip to comments.Obama Seeks "Fuller Understanding" of What Happened in Algeria Siege
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.

You are on your own, you are expendable.
This is proof we gotta ban those ugly assault rifles!
Have you seen Zer0 say anything?
I haven't. It's been his lackeys doing all the appearances.
Leading from the rear...as usual.
What? You mean it wasn’t a protest over a video at a gas facility? The election must be over or something..
Muslims are murdering savages-—there’s your fuller understanding, Soetoro. Go exterminate them.
What’s that?....Another golf game, you say?....
F him. He does not want to know. He just wants to act like he cares and not get blamed.
0bama would still be waiting...in contrast, the Algerian Army saved 792 workers at that complex. Lost 23.
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.”
O is so full of himself. I have come to believe that WH no longer stands for White House but “White Hate” and if he can’t get situations to serve THAT purpose then he is not interested. He could care less what happened in Algeria.
I know exactly what happened.
People died while Obama sat undecided.
He’s a great actor who is, no doubt, complicit in the hostages death since he probably armed the terrorists who took them hostage.
Ain't gonna happen! Ben Ghazi is just a misunderstood peace activist! /S
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.

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.
"It" is just having a hard time coming up with a plausible reason why it was Bush's fault.
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.
