american hostages mali

BUZZFEED.COM reports:


After France's military intervention in Islamist-controlled northern Mali over the weekend, the North African country has become a hot topic in the news. But one man was introducing the problems in Mali to a mainstream audience before most other politicians and commentators: Mitt Romney.

During the third and final presidential debate, which focused on foreign policy, Romney slipped in an aside about Mali that attracted some derision on Twitter at the time, but now looks wise in retrospect.

    I'm gonna quote another Sodaheader here:

    "Mali has been taken over, the northern part of Mali by Al Qaeda type individuals"
    ( Romney). Wow ,that sure is some astute analysis to state something that had been in the news for 6 months. Did Romney later announce water was wet and expect applause ?

    How come every time anything in the world happens that's bad it's all of the sudden the President's fault and problem when 6 years ago you haters wouldn't have given a rats ass about it --or even knew that country existed? Just sayin.

    The problem is when the President is doing a good job and has a huge success --that means nothing happens. No one is going to put on the front page "A Genocide didn't happen in Mumbai today" Even though it may have been a huge undertaking to prevent it.

The group was founded in Dallas in 1989 and believes black Americans should have their own nation, according to the SPLC."

    In an election year, no one cared about Mali. It wasn't news worthy. Like all Presidential candidates, Romney only knew about Mali because he was getting top level intelligence briefings prior to debates. Mali and the rest of the southern Sahara has been a problem for years, and considering the countries involved are almost exclusively former French colonies, it was only natural that France would be front and center when dealing with it - NOT the United States.

    All roads lead to Benghazi.

    Mali Islamist got their weapons from Libya, got their money and training from Qatar. That same Qatar that were embedded with Libyan Al qaeda imported by Amb Stevens. That same Qatar that is embedded with the Syrian Rebels that came from Libya.
    Qatar, home of CENTCOM.

    It looks like this dance with the devil is going to spread into Algeria next. That will put France in a conundrum. They helped the Al Qaeda's in Libya, and their special forces did the actual killing of Qaddafi but they want to save (or do they?) the Algerian government which is anti - Islamist. Looks like starting the war in Libya wasn't good enough for them. Now they are starting a war in Mali and Algeria. They will drag NATO into it too. Like Libya, after the action starts, they will run out of ammo.

    Don't you maintain the don't negotiate with terrorists policy? Yes I'm making an assumption about the hostage takers there.

    Anyway, main reason I came to this question. Some liberals nearly always mock Romney. People always mock their opponents, are you going to post questions about times they mocked romney when he was wrong?
    Of course not, because that would be silly.

    “Clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you’re gonna say something that doesn’t come out right,” Romney said in an interview Wednesday night with Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “In this case I said something that’s just completely wrong.”

    There's a quote of a quote in which Romney says he was Completely wrong. Either his initial statement was wrong, or his follow up statement was wrong. Either way, you're wrong. Well done, you match.
