Jack has been watching N. Africa pretty closely, and is sure to have more on this as details emerge. Here’s the latest in the the failed French hostage rescue attempt. -Brandon
At least one French soldier has been killed in Somalia during a failed bid to free a French hostage, who is also believed to have died, the French defence minister has said.
The operation to free the secret agent, with the alias of Denis Allex, was launched by France’s elite DGSE secret service, Jean-Yves Le Drian said in a statement on Saturday, adding that another French soldier was missing.

@Txazz @Old PH2 @BLACK01 @Recon6 Just spoke with an aquaintence re: her grandson in and out of prison multiple times,, 26 years old is studying the Qur'an in prison with his religous study group. They are all Fetal Alcohol or ADD or autistic spectrum or plain hardened criminals and have finally found what they need to make their lives meaningful and less frustrating as young male super-predators.They are contacted by outside religous organizers who provide them with the Qur'an, religous instruction, and upon release will take them in and care for them and train them right here in the US, mostly N WA and ID, some in the south. The organization provides them with religon and ideoplogy while inside. Then they will re-group upon release for more intensive training at the camps. These are mainly young, predatory, violent repeat offenders.
Are we suprised that the French tucked tail and ran...leaving even their own behind? It seems to me like history is just repeating itself. Prayers out to the families who are left to endure this shit.
@ArcticWarrior wtf? AW, the Commander's troops deserted him? Surely not.....6
@ArcticWarrior Alex fate does not sound too good.
The world wants to ignore that Islamic terrorism is spreading. It's happening all over, not just the middle east.
