Well, let me tell you what happened Mr. President. You know that group you said was decimated, defunct, on-the-run, without leadership, Al Qaeda! Guess what, they have struck again in yet another country and killed Americans. And you know when Romney stated during the election that Al Qaeda was a serious threat and you and everyone scoffed, guess what, they are attacking there also.

Sounds to me like the Algerians didn’t trust us after helping to overthrow the Libyan government and make a mess that overflowed into their country.

Well, Muslim terrorists attacked a refinery site and killed or took captive a number of Americans, as well as people of other nationalities.

The Algerians responded by attacking the terrorists, and managed to rescue at least some, if not most, of the captives.

And you sat there with your mouth open doing nothing. At least, that’s assuming that you gave it any thought at all, which is somewhat doubtful.

No kidding the man is turning me into a conspiracy theorist when it comes to this crap. For all we know, these hostages were the same mysterious people who were at the embassy in Benghazi but have disappeared without the ability to testify.

Mr President, greedy Americans were working for profit, can you believe Mr. President they were still employed. These greedies were working for company which is polluting Earth. Some non-profit organizations guys who believe in purity and peace, aborted those greedy who were digging pollutants and destroying this earth.

To be President of the US means you have to be a decision maker and a person with conviction and courage ... does this sound like our present leader?

And I use “leader” with great reservation. This man is no leader. He is a coward and if it were not for affirmative action ... nuff said.

Here is what happened; While under attack the Algerians did NOT sit around over the course of 8 hours listening to people BEG on the radio for air support while watching them DIE on TV.

They actually TRIED to do something.

And what is more they probably didn’t actively ARM the very same nuts who attacked them.

The ham-handed Algerians owe GayMuzzie NO explanation at all.

“........to provide any assistance the Algerian government needs.....”

If Obama has your 6, you’re going to get a knife in your back.

Oh, and on October 8, 2012, Obama defiantly declared that “al Qaeda is on its heels.” LOL @ ANYONE that listens to his words.

I am quite sure that what Obummer and his fellow dimocrats want to figure out is:
1. What did we do to anger these poor innocents.
2. How can we make the evil corporations responsible.
3. How much of the American taxpayers money will it take to make them happy and proud of their ancestry.
4. How can we blame the Republicans.
5. How can we pin it all on Bush!

I don’t have a full understanding either. I do think that the attackers said they had Americans and would kill them if The Blind Shiek wasn’t released.

Did Obama hear the same thing? And as news reports continued to come in, I heard four US hostages, three, two...and now none.

The presidency of the United States of America is no place to start looking for understanding. The world is moving too fast for some neophyte to be trying to figure things out on the fly.

Mr. President, we have not forgotten the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi: Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods. I hope you are seeking a “fuller understanding” of what happened there or have you conveniently forgotten about that tragedy? Your “Move on, nothing to see here” attitude is dispicable!

“Oct 29, 2012 – US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited Algeria Monday to secure Algerian cooperation in fighting terrorism in northern Mali.”

I thought our illustrious Secretary of State had already taken care of things in Mali and Algeria. You mean to tell me that Al Qaeda didn’t turn tale and run when they found out CSI Agent Clinton was on the case?

Al Qaeda is already in the USA, just biding their time, planning, waiting for the liberals to disarm the population so they will have an easier time when they start their assaults. It is coming, and sooner than you think. They can bring anything they want over our Southern border with the help of the drug cartels. Be prepared my friends!

This just in- in an effort to stop wars and gun violence aroudn hte world, the UN and abama and blloomingberg have announced that all assault weapons are now illegal anywhere i nthe world- Anyoen caught with an assault weapon will be ‘prosecuted to hte fullest extent of the law’ (unless they are criminals)

Why didn’t we think of htis before? All we had to do to brign abotu world peace was to ban guns- ban assault rifles- and all our worries woudl be over-
