    Well, regardless of where anyone decides to place the brunt of the blame, it doesn't appear the Algerians did much to help the situation

    Clumsy attempt by the Algerian ''special forces..

    Mokhtar Belmokhtar was a cigarette smuggler...He was the head man..

    I can only think that this may have been an attempt to gain his passage to ''Paradise''

    From a fundamental Islamists point of view..

    He knew that neither him or his followers would get out of there alive!!

    What should they have done?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Well that's just wonderful, and rather clearly points out the flawed thinking of blaming the wrong people....The Algerians acted, rightly or wrongly, that wouldn't have been necessary had the terrorists not taken the facility. The blame for the deaths of the hostages lays with the terrorists....But thank you for being the second person to blame the wrong people, and highlight the flaw.

    Maybe you should vet that to the Algerian government...It was their call.
