U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said on Friday militants who attacked the United States and its citizens will hunted down, in the first comments by a senior U.S. official on a hostage attack by Islamist militants in Algeria. …

“Terrorists should be on notice that they will find no sanctuary, no refuge, not in Algeria, not in North Africa, not anywhere. Those who would wantonly attack our country and our people will have no place to hide,” he said. …

Oh yes . . . the murderers of Christopher Stevens in Benghazi are just quaking in their boots now. Also notice Reuters’ use of “militants” in place of “terrorists”.

We knew that was coming. Some folks around here said that wouldn’t happen. They were wrong.

Why don't we go about striking the source of the problem. They can produce illiterate thugs faster than we can arrest them and put them in a five star prison.

Maybe we should hire the Algerian Army to take care of the terrorists.

Yeah. They know better. They know that you’re saying what you want the media to publish, but your boss really likes those guys with beards so he won’t do anythingl

Oh, yes, we just might send in the FBI in a few months to take statements; that’ll show them. Really, we've got one Benghazi suspect released in Tunisia with no consequences. We have another giving media interviews while sitting in a luxury hotel sipping drinks. The world just quakes when the US huffs and puffs...

BP needs to take some responsibility for employee safety and hire some blackwater thugs to protect these guys. Why is it the government’s job to come to the rescue when people put themselves in harm’s way?

riiiiight. The world laughs at Panetta. I cringe thinking the blood of my fellow citizens will be spilled under the direction of an America-hating W.H. Hillary will have another concussion.

I thought the blood must be really flowing as soon as I heard our great Secretary of State Hillary Rotten Clinton say the situation in Algeria was very fluid . Drudge now reporting: 32 hostages dead, missing in botched Algerian rescue attempt . . . . .

Yeah except in plain sight. This is like day 3 and you mean to tell me we have no assets on the ground painting pretty laser pics?

At LEAST Panetta is saying something...I haven’t heard from Zero nor from Hitmyhead...just some jr. SD flunkette who can’t and won’t say anything .

Yep...go get’em, tigers...meow.

We’ve gone back to reacting to terrorism rather than being proactive (Bush Doctrine).

When Ambassador are killed or Hostages taken the way the Obama administration handles it is to get out the old manure spreader and start slinging sludge oput the back at full speed.

In a few weeks the media lets it die down and all we are left with is walking in the sludge.

We won’t get these guys any more than we did the Benghazi guys. Obama might send a drone over and kill some civilians , but thats about it.

Yes, and it’s becoming painfully obvious which of the two is actually effective.

Benghazi ring a bell?
Drone watching no coordinated effort. American deaths hopefully incorrect but if so, do we see a pattern here?
The two terrorists they want to trade for should have been dispersed with years ago!
The poor frail blind Shiek is still killing Americans!

The Algerians sent a message to the terrorists. “Screw you and your hostages too. Stay your ass in Mali or die.” Obama would never be so bold.

Yeah, and OJ is still actively pursuing the real killers; or he would be if he were’nt in jail. Too bad the kenyan and company aren’t sharing a cell block with OJ.

Is the US government giving terrorists a 90+ day head start? Kind of like playing hide-and-seek when you were a kid.

I'm sure that OJ Simpson would be happy to help once he finds the killer of his late wife. There are still a few golf courses left to check, but then he'll get right on this!
