Americans and Other Foreigners Taken Hostage in Algeria Terror Attack

Just hours ago a bus carrying foreign workers from the United States, France, the United Kingdom, and other nations was attacked by armed insurgents right outside of the In Amenes natural gas complex located near the Libyan border.

The attack occurred between 5:00 and 6:00am local time in Algeria (around midnight this morning of the 16th – East Coast time). The facility is a joint venture operated by British Petroleum (BP), Norway’s Statoil and the Algerian state company, Sonatrach.

    @Recon6  @StormR  @ChupaCabra  @Allwet  @Txazz Hmmm-I for one withold judgement here, most of the knowledge for me, comes from the media-who ,without a second thought of conscious remorse , with turn a satan into a saint , and Mother Theresa into a .....well you get the point. I for one , need to be redlined with regularity to maintain sanity-if you are too fucking tired, you can't go crazy, or would that be going sane?Something snapped, and what it was, will never come to light.Heads will shake knowingly according to what ever is the adopted agenda of the moment...."see, just like we said", and the sheep will roll with it, because it is the easiest thing to do.Why is it that the all knowing , are always those that have never done, and never will....and yet no one questions the judgements passed.The answer isn't "blowing in the wind" , its in standing against the storm.

    @chupacabra-This Shiners for you, because that was damn well said. Replies like that are one of the reason I feel better all around after dropping in, no matter how pissed off or crappy my outlook may be on any one day.
