CNN ^ | Sept 22, 2013 | Faith Karimi, Steve Almasy and Lillian Leposo, CNN

Sixty-eight dead. At least 175 injured. About 30 hostages still inside, as well as perhaps a dozen gunmen.

Those are the grim numbers, more than a day after Islamist attackers stormed an upscale Nairobi mall on Saturday, spraying bullets and holding shoppers captive.

The tense standoff continued into Sunday night, with sporadic gunfire heard through the day and at least one explosion.

You got THAT right!

BHO2 didn’t spend $20+ million dollars of our tax revenues to help Kenya rewrite its national constitution for no reason other than to have another nation to move to and continue raping their treasury.

“...black water facility...”

Does that mean an inland, hidden compound on a lake? Just wondering.

1997 Blackwater USA[edit source | editbeta]
Erik Prince, Blackwater founderBlackwater USA was formed in 1997, by Erik Prince in North Carolina, to provide training support to military and law enforcement organizations. In explaining Blackwater’s purpose, Prince stated that ‘‘We are trying to do for the national security apparatus what FedEx did for the Postal Service.’’[7] After serving SEAL and SWAT teams, Blackwater USA received its first government contract after the bombing of the USS Cole off of the coast of Yemen in October 2000. After winning the bid on the contract, Blackwater trained over 100,000 sailors.[8]

The women will save U.S.

If enough women are armed....a mall would be invincible.

A simple democratic process involving social groups in conflict....no subjugation by any violent group can occur when the majority is armed.

Yes some are spastic and irrational...some are socialized all their lives to get what they want through extreme and irresponsible emotional display. However the Majority that I have had experience with...after training are MORE realistic and thoughtful than males when they carry.
None of This would have happened if one in five women were armed in the mall.

In mexico right now along the boarder its armed women who support the last vestiges of civility.

I think all the rational women should be armed.
If they were islam would not exist in this form today.
I hate to say it but Islam is a male disease.Equality is like antibiotic.

I think...:)

Coming to a suburb near you. Just in time for the holidays.

I fear that this may just be the year. Such an attack abroad serves as a trial exercise (see what goes right/wrong).

The 9-11 attack was preceded by an earlier attack on the WTC (which was also designed to topple the building onto surrounding real estate). There were also earlier attacks on US interests.

The fruit of the boom panty bomber was on a Christmas flight.

The Boston bombers struck on Patriot's Day. Terrorists attacked on 9-11-2012 in Benghazi.

Dates mean things to them. And this administration has no spine.

Islam is a religion of peace, and they’ll murder you to prove it!

Okay, so it’s a Blackwater-like facility; I’ve heard of them. Got it. Thanks.

Apparently, the muzzies have more than one ‘training facility’ here:

I must agree. All the cult-like religions of the world feature men getting lots of sex -- with multiple wives, with children, with temple prostitutes or in the afterlife. Christ held women up as equals and treated them with respect.

I think if what he said was BLACKWATER then that’s what he means. Not ‘Blackwater-like’ but simply BLACKWATER.

Some of them join the military and get their training that way.

How can that map not have Minnesota on it as red when Somalis and I would assert from Keith Ellison’s district itself have been recruited to fight in Somalia with El Shabaab??

Maybe the map needs to be updated, I think it’s several years old.

“Does that mean an inland, hidden compound on a lake? Just wondering.”

IF that info is correct and that's a big IF they could be referring to these guys.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Academi.
They used to be known as Blackwater a merc out fit run by Eric Prince but the only training facility I can find is in the San Diego but that doesn't preclude a site being leased in Northern California under a cover name.

That being said the info opens some interesting possibilities.

...and how can that map not have New Jersey on it? The whole Patterson, Jersey City, Newark area is loaded with Muslims and and should just have a big net thrown over it!
