    Not that I know of. I'll have to call up the CIA and ask them. Just because we don't know about it, doesn't mean it isn't happening.

    Yes it was..but refused any help from more experienced special services..who may have succeeded in ending the problem by negotiating with the kidnappers..thus avoiding a total massacre..

    So when you spouted off about using Predators, and we are talking about Mali, and Algeria, you were just deflecting the point...Got it...And you can try and call the CIA if you wish, but my guess is that they won't save you from your obtuse statements either.

    Just because we don't know about it, doesn't mean it isn't happening.
    That is just about the dumbest thing I think I have ever read in here....Can I use it as my sig?

    Negotiate? With terrorists? You're kidding right? Algeria has been in a long, and bloody fight with Islamic extremists..Negotiate?

    Sorry, that's weak...

    On the other hand, at least the Algerians made a move. They had to move faster than anyone would want to because the facilities had been set afire. The whole facility was getting ready to blow up. They had little time to plan carefully, they just had move right away. On top of it, we don't know how many hostages the terrorists executed as the last attack began. The best counter terrorist unit in the world can't do anything about it if terrorists outright kill the hostages before they can be rescued.

    Then again you blame the wrong people, so thanks for your opinion on what you think should have been done, but unless you are an adviser to the Algerian government, then what you think is irrelevant. Thank God.

    If that's the dumbest thing you've ever read, you've obviously never read your own posts

    I think you need to have more confidence in yourself.
