    "Details of the dead militants emerged after it was claimed some of the terrorists involved in the siege in which three Britons have died had been working at the BP plant where the atrocity took place."

    This quote is from a Daily Mail article about the Algerian hostage crisis at the BP plant there. I can't post the link because I don't yet have permission to post URLs (I haven't made enough postings yet.)

    It's called infiltration. They passed a background check.

    Here's a couple of good links. This was well planned.

    Two more Americans confirmed dead in attack on Algerian oil rig by Al Qaeda-linked terrorists bringing death toll up to 37 as seven foreign workers still missing.

    And this is more disturbing to me. They found a couple of Canadian passports. I'm going to try to get more information on the link to Canada.

    These are the tactics of cowards.."Last week's desert siege began Wednesday when Mali-based, Al Qaeda-linked militants attempted to hijack two buses at the plant, were repelled, and then seized the gas refinery. They said the attack was retaliation for France's recent military intervention against Islamist rebels in neighboring Mali, but security experts argue it must have taken weeks of planning to hit the remote site."

    Please don't anyone interpret this as a compliment to the terrorists.

    This was an extremely well thought out and well planned attack. Just like Benghazi.

    AQ's not dead. It appears they are more than alive and kicking.

    I do wish media outlets would call people who take others hostage and line them up and execute them "terrorists" not "militants".

    It makes me want to spit bullets when the media does that.

    Yowzah. This profile of this reportedly new terror chief is cold. This is a monster of a person.

    ONE-EYED TERROR CHIEF HIRED 3FT 6IN EXECUTIONER 'TO BEHEAD DOZENS OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN'

    Ruthless al-Qaeda kingpin behind the Algerian hostage crisis, Mokhtar Belmokhtar, is said to have once employed a 3ft 6ins-tall killer named 'Mohamed the Dwarf' during a terror campaign in the 1990s.

    One-eyed fanatic Belmokhtar, 40, who has a son named after Osama bin Laden, reportedly used the axe-wielding dwarf to slit the throats of 31 victims and behead them in public in the 1990s.

    At the time Belmokhtar was a commander in the Armed Islamic Group of Algeria, known as the GIA, and used the dwarf as part of his failed campaign to impose a strict Islamic government in Algeria.

    Hundreds of executions are believed to have been carried out by the axe-wielding dwarf who murdered men, women and children after dthey had been dragged from their beds.

    The dwarf and 50 heavily-armed extremists once dragged entire families into the street and forced them to line up for execution.

    A survivor said: 'No one was allowed to speak as they were dragged out into a back street. Then the victims were made to stand in a queue to be killed.

    'At the head of the line was a dwarf, wearing a canvas hood and a scarf covering his face.

    'He had a large knife in one hand and an axe in the other.

    'As people were brought forward he slit their throats then chopped off their heads with the axe.'

    The carnage then continued until an army patrol arrived and the terrorists fled.

    In another massacre, the dwarf is said to have hacked the heads of 86 people in a single night. There are no reports of the tiny butcher ever having been caught.

    To be honest he reminds me of Samuel L. Jackson...

    :lol:

    Exploiting. Exploiting the working class. That's what you meant to say right?

    Too funny. The terror chief is a radical Islamist. This has nothing to do with workers rights.
