We have another hostage situation where American citizens are being killed.

When asked for a reaction from the President to the lates murder of Americans, the President's Chief Dog Washer, Jay Carney, said the President is contemplating his options - while playing golf.

Militants Grab U.S. Hostages
About 40 Foreigners Taken in Algeria; Islamists Claim Responsibility

By DAVID GAUTHIER-VILLARS, DREW HINSHAW and SIOBHAN GORMAN

Conflicting reports emerged about the crisis Thursday morning, with some news agencies reporting that hostages and hostage-takers had been killed.

Militants with possible links to al Qaeda seized about 40 foreign hostages, including several Americans, at a natural-gas field in Algeria, posing a new level of threat to nations trying to blunt the growing influence of Islamist extremists in Africa.

An Associated Press report claims that 20 of the hostages being held in Algeria have escaped, while other reports claim 35 hostages and 15 kidnappers have been killed in a helicopter attack.

As security officials in the U.S. and Europe assessed options to reach the captives from distant bases, Algerian security forces failed in an attempt late Wednesday to storm the facility.

Well, he sure did a fine job saving the lives of the 4 American Diplomats in Benghazi while he and his advisors watched live from their Situation Room in the White House.

I am confident he will do just as good a job for these Americans.

He won't declare war on his own peoples, just legal American citizens legally owning firearms.
