    Obama Seeks "Fuller Understanding" of What Happened in Algeria Siege


    By Matt Spetalnick
    January 19, 2013


    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.

    Ugh, fuck, I don't want the military to get involved in Algeria now.
    That said, a more cautious approach might be best in this regard. I don't like it, but if we're going to retaliate, then best do it slowly.

    Death toll at Algerian gas plant rises to at least 81 as bomb squads find more bodies
    January 20, 2013 – The death toll from the bloody terrorist siege at a natural gas plant in the Sahara climbed to at least 81 on Sunday as Algerian forces searching the complex for explosives found dozens more bodies, many so badly disfigured they could not immediately be identified, a security official said.
