Truthfully, it has been pretty much of a gagger to try to post the last couple of days. But finally I found a real hoot. Now that Panetta is walking out the door, after we left Americans to die in Benghazi, and have done nothing to go after those who did it, after we turned the Middle East into a tinder box, this savant has his last remarks recorded and that should go down in History as demonstrating one of the most insightful foreign polices in our Nation’s History. He claims we helped out big time in Algeria after everyone knows Algeria told us to go to hell as well as the rest of the Europeans. Add our savant Clinton who just issued this warning that perhaps Americans may want to take off Algeria as their destination vacation port. Wow, four more years that should get even better with our new Secretary of State and Defense. At least the word “Terrorist” was used. We indeed have come a long way. So this is my inaugural post. God help us.
The State Department issued a travel warning Saturday night for Americans in or traveling to Algeria, citing credible threats of the kidnapping of Western nationals. The department also authorized the departure from Algeria of staff members’ families if they choose to leave.
“Terrorists should be on notice that they will find no sanctuary, no refuge. Not in Algeria, not in North Africa, not anywhere,” Panetta told an audience in London.
Panetta says US officials are “working around the clock” to secure the safe release of aof US citizens who have been taken hostage by militants at a gas plant near the Algerian town of In Amenas.
