Terrorist Attacks Indicates Resurging Al Qaeda

Posted by Steve Markowitz on January 19, 2013

BP facility in AlgeriaThe situation in Algeria is chaotic.  Islamic terrorists attacked an oilfield taking locals and internationals hostages.  Within a day the Algerian military attacked the terrorists in an effort to free the hostages.  While initial reports indicated the attack to be successful, those proved premature.  The terrorists were resilient, still holding part of the field and hostages after the initial attack.  It is been reported that at least 23 hostages were killed after a second and final Algerian attack.

This is another indication that the threat from radical Islamist terrorists is growing in North Africa.  It is an opposite of the narrative created by the White House during the presidential election campaign that Obama defeated Al Qaeda.  This false narrative started to come apart with the attack on America’s consulate in Benghazi Libya in September that resulted in the death of four Americans including our ambassador.  The President withheld details on this tragedy and continues to stonewall the American public with the assistance of the mainstream media.

This week the French militarily also intervened in the growing crisis in Mali where Al Qaeda-back terrorists have made significant headway towards taking over that country.  While President Obama has said little of the growing Mali crisis, it was raised during the third presidential debate by then candidate Mitt Romney, as reported by Buzzfeed.com and posted below.

President Obama’s foreign policies, especially as they relate to the Arab and greater Islamic world, have been failures.  On a nearly weekly basis we jump from one crisis to another.  Yet the mainstream media is unwilling to ask the President the appropriate direct questions relating to these failures.

During the third presidential debate, Romney also referred to the 30,000 civilians killed in Syrian.  A few months later it is reported that the number is now over 60,000, another example of the tragedy that is Obama’s foreign policy.

“With the Arab Spring, came a great deal of hope that there would be a change towards more moderation, and opportunity for greater participation on the part of women in public life, and in economic life in the Middle East. But instead, we’ve seen in nation after nation, a number of disturbing events.  Of course we see in Syria, 30,000 civilians having been killed by the military there.  We see in – in Libya, an attack apparently by, I think we know now, by terrorists of some kind against – against our people there, four people dead.  …  Our hearts and – and minds go out to them. Mali has been taken over, the northern part of Mali by Al Qaeda type individuals.”
