Update! 1 American killed, 2 escape in Algeria hostage crisis, US officials say; militants seek to trade 2 others for blind sheik
One American was killed and two escaped unharmed from a natural gas complex in Algeria that was stormed by armed militants, U.S. officials said Friday. The fate of two others was unclear.

The officials said there was a total of five Americans at the In Amenas plant in eastern Algeria when the attackers seized dozens of hostages on Wednesday. The officials say two of the Americans managed to conceal themselves when the attack began and later escaped unharmed.

Details emerge in militant takeover, rescue operation at Algeria gas field

"I stayed hidden in my room for almost 40 hours," he told Europe 1 radio, saying he hid under the bed and didn't even realize when his ordeal was over.

That night, Kabila, Algeria's top security official, announced that in accordance to Algeria's longstanding policy, "we reject all negotiations with the group." Despite regular elections, Algeria is run by a coterie of generals and ruling party leaders who got the country through a bloody, decade-long Islamist rebellion with brutal tactics that earned them the nickname "the eradicators."

On Thursday afternoon, Algerian military forces saw a five- jeep convoy moving from one part of the complex to another. Fearing the kidnappers were trying to make a break for it, they sent attack helicopters into action.

An international outcry mounted over the Algerians' handling of the crisis. Experts noted that this is how they have always dealt with terrorists.

"It's the Russian training for dealing with terrorism," said Matieu Guidere, a longtime expert on al-Qaida and Algeria. "The message is: We will terrorize the terrorists. ... This is clear. The life of hostages is nothing in the balance."

The Algerian government insisted it had to intervene to prevent a catastrophe.

So this is the second failed attempt at a scenario where a hostage or hostages get traded for the Blind Sheik (the first being Benghazi of course...can't have a hostage trade when the hostage is dead).

The CIA will get it right one of these times. And we'll all be convinced by the media how it was worth letting the Blind Sheik go in order to get our citizens back, citizens that were nothing more than pawns in a chess game that defies logic.

This whole story seems like complete fabrication.
None of this happened.
It's just another media propaganda story to give an
excuse to be in Northern Africa.

I heard a military contractor call in on my local
talk show on my morning drive saying that he was
pulling out of Kurdistan and relocating to North
Africa in March.

I had read on here about three weeks ago that the next
flashpoint that the US was planning to send troops was
there also.

Now this? How convenient.
Blind sheik out to be what 80 years old if he was a real
person, which he isn't.
They need to have a rationale and this is what they decided
on.
Mr. Marlboro is also another fake entity useful to sell the
next war action.

Why do people believe this garbage every time the DOD/MSM decide to wag the dog?
