Mokhtar Belmokhtar Killed in Mali

And here i thought that Al-Qeada was defunct, I mean, Obama said so!

 

From the Telegraph:

Al-Qaeda commander behind Algeria gas plant attack ‘killed in Mali’

The al-Qaeda commander who masterminded an attack on a gas plant in Algeria has been killed, it was claimed on Saturday night.

A Chad military spokesman said Mokhtar Belmokhtar, one of the world’s most wanted terrorists, died on Saturday in an assault on an Islamist rebel base in northern Mali.

Belmokhtar was at the centre of an international manhunt after at least 37 foreign hostages, including six Britons, were killed in a siege at the In Amenas gas complex in eastern Algeria last January.

In a statement read out on Chadian national television, Gen Zacharia Gobongue, the armed forces spokesman, said: “On Saturday, March 2, at noon, Chadian armed forces operating in northern Mali completely destroyed a terrorist base. The toll included several dead terrorists, including their leader Mokhtar Belmokhtar.”

The French military, which is leading the offensive in northern Mali assisted by several African nations, said it could not confirm the report.

Belmokhtar, 40, who headed a militant brigade called Witnesses in Blood, became one of the world’s most wanted men after the gas complex, operated by BP together with Norway’s Statoil and Sonatrach, Algeria’s state energy company, was attacked by gunmen on Jan 16.

 

Belmokhtar’s death, if confirmed, would be a major blow to Islamist rebels in northern Mali who have been pushed into their mountain strongholds by French and African forces. The Algerian-born Belmokhtar, linked to a string of kidnappings in North Africa in the past decade, had been dubbed “the uncatchable” by the French.

He is said to have become attracted to Islamism as a teenage schoolboy, travelling to Afghanistan at the end of the war against the Soviets in the early 1990s.

This launched him on a two-decade career of Islamic militancy, initially as a member of Algeria’s Islamic Armed Group (GIA) in the country’s civil war. He then became a joint founder of the Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat (GSPC), which extended its attacks against security forces into countries along the southern fringe of the Sahara. He lost his left eye while handling explosives in the 1990s fighting Algerian government troops as head of the Shahada Katibat [Martyrs Battallion] in the Sahara.

The GSPC later took up the franchise of al-Qaeda’s North Africa wing, under the name al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). Belmokhtar headed one of two AQIM battalions in Algeria’s southern desert bordering Mali.

Belmokhtar was sentenced by an Algerian court to life imprisonment in absentia in connection with the killing of 10 Algerian customs agents in 2007.

His reputation as a “gangster-jihadist” involved in arms and cigarette smuggling earned him the nickname “Mister Malboro” among locals in the Sahara.

    BSD worked closely with Obama for America to build on the strategic and technology breakthroughs of the first campaign and mobilize a new army of grassroots supporters.

    Then, as the campaign staffed up in Chicago, BSD supported OFA’s optimization, community-building, engagement and mobilization programs. Four core principles guided this work through Election Day:

    Quick Donate made donating to the campaign as simple as a single click, bringing in $75 million in additional revenue from 1.5 million donors. Donors using Quick Donate gave four times as often—and three times as much money—as those solicited through traditional channels.

    I wonder if those donations have been audited to see if they were all legal?

    Parents tell me that “Bel-” is Algerian-Arabic for “The People Of -”. So this kook was calling himself “The Chosen One of the Chosen People”.

    One Party takes pride in having no principles while the other Party runs from their principles. There is no ‘Republican machine’ worthy of the name. The GOPee is afraid to fight the D’Rats for fear of being call bad names by the state controlled lame stream obamamedia.

    this should be well noted… we have had local “shop keepers” around here busted for raising money for jihadists… bootlegs smokes are popular, but so are drugs (yes pot too) gambling (yes the football pool) and and prostitution (don’t pet that goat)… chances are if you do something not quite legal the muzz gets paid.

    US pledges $450m to back Egypt’s faltering economy

    US Secretary of State John Kerry has pledged $450m (£300m) to support Egypt’s faltering economy but warned Cairo that “more hard work” was needed.

    Mr Kerry’s comments came after talks in the Egyptian capital with President Mohammed Morsi.

    He also urged Mr Morsi to ensure that next month’s elections “are free, fair and transparent”. [It would be nice if we could say the same about ours.]

    as far as I am concerned the “officials” in office became illegitimate when they disregarded their oath to uphold the Constitution.

    No. I don’t think you do understand. Only the States working together will have the needed power to force reform on the Fools in DC Town. Picture something similar to to the Barons (States) forcing King James (DC Town) to accept the Magna Carta (the US Constitution) to see what I’m talking about when I say it’s going to take the States acting together to make things change. We the people can only work on this through our own States, it’s the only way we can combine our power for change.

    It will be the job of the Red States to reform DC Town.

    It is the job of every American, if you are not up for the task, I understand.

    No. I don’t think you do understand. Only the States working together will have the needed power to force reform on the Fools in DC Town. Picture something similar to to the Barons (States) forcing King James (DC Town) to accept the Magna Carta (the US Constitution) to see what I’m talking about when I say it’s going to take the States acting together to make things change. We the people can only work on this through our own States, it’s the only way we can combine our power for change.

    we tried that once before

    @ Da_Beerfreak: one problem is that a “smear” is a negative sort of passion but people are attracted to it like flies.

    To get an opposite effect it takes a lot of small continuous efforts over a long period of time. Like posting to this blog over the years is a positive contribution. As is reading it. And I would say all the CJ bashing that goes on has at least a beacon effect that helps other people notice what is wrong there. However there is still a tremendous amount of information noise out there.

    The GoP needs to pursue information privacy laws if it wishes to derail the O-Express. And that will mean high sticking Google etc.

    So do I.

    Actually, it goes beyond that. Not only does Obama not identify with America culturally, he despises it, much like many Europeans (which is ironic, considering that he hates them, too).

    CA Gun Retailer Says Sayonara To California, “Howdy” To Texas

    For one gun retailer, the Golden State wasn’t so golden.

    Shield Tactical, a California retailer and firearms training provider, has decided to ‘get the heck out of Dodge’ — and move to Texas.

    John W. Harrington founded Shield Tactical in 2008, but with California’s hard-line stance on gun control, he decided the state was no longer a good place for his business. Harrington, originally from Texas, said it was finally “time to go home.”

    “The state of California treats all businesses as necessary evils,” he told Red Alert. “They treat those of us in the gun business as just evil. They make it very clear that they don’t want us there. It’s just that simple.”

    Sotomayor was a garden variety diversity/affirmative action appointment; she could be trusted to be reliably prog on most issues, but her appointment was primarily to reassure the Senate that Obama’s picks, while lefty, would be within acceptable parameters. Her function, in other words, was to pave the way for Kagen, who clearly was appointed for the purpose of lobbying heavily for Obamacare and the radical gay-rights movement.

    That sounds about right. But, both bad appointments imo.
    Elections have cosequences.
