Obama Releases Info on Special Forces Raid – Why?

Posted by madjillmom on August 20, 2014

This evening, in order to look strong and involved, Obama let us know that he had Ok’d a special forces raid into Syria earlier this summer to rescue some American hostages. This included James Foley, the journalist beheaded by ISIS/ISIL. Why would Obama let this information out? The only benefit is to his reputation. Now, he has tipped of ISIS and Syria about doing it. He has touted an effort that failed. He wants to look proactive and strong. He needs something to balance the golf and vacay pics.

Hasn’t he just killed the other hostages by talking about a secret mission? Look for more awful videos of ISIS killing people in the name of Allah.

Egypt Hostage’s Released

Posted by madjillmom on March 5, 2012

Late last week, the American hostages no one seemed to know about were allowed to leave Egypt.  This included the son of Ray LaHood, Secretary of Transportation.  Quietest American Hostage situation ever known. These people were allowed to leave after ransom/bail was paid to Egypt.  The ransom (5 million total) was paid by the non-profit organizations/foundations that these American were working for.  While it is great that these people are allowed out of Egypt, it is unfortunate that a ransom had to be paid.  If you are an American abroad in a sensitive spot, you may want to make sure someone has $300,000 to get you a ride back home when someone figures out it is great to arrest Americans on trumped-up charges. Also, while the government didn’t pay these ransoms, the organizations they work for could get lots of their funds from the government.
