CLG News -- for the truth you're not being told anywhere else.
Holy coincidence, Batman! Just when the Pentagon is trolling for a reason to put boots on the ground: At Least 3 Americans Held Hostage by Al Qaeda-Linked Group in Algeria 16 Jan 2013 Two U.S. officials tell ABC News that Americans are among the hostages held following an attack by al Qaeda[al-CIAduh]-linked insurgents on a BP joint-venture natural gas field in Algeria. One of those, a senior intelligence official, said that it currently appears three U.S. citizens are being held. However, the official cautioned that the numbers can change [?] as can the overall number of hostages. While the total number of hostages continues to remain unclear, a number of reports have said as many as 41 hostages were being held. An official at BP told ABC News that there are approximately 700 local staff and contractors at the facility and 20 international BP staff and contractors. [BP, get the f*ck out of Algeria. That's the solution - not sending US troops and Blackwater terrorists to fight--at US taxpayers' expense--at the behest of BP. --LRP]
