Pamela Geller on Algeria: Obama fiddles, Americans burn

In "Bloody jihad: Obama fiddles, Americans burn" in  WND today, Pamela Geller blasts Obama for his lack of leadership in what amounted to an act of war: the Algeria jihad mass murders:
The Algerian hostage crisis came to a bloody end Saturday when Special Forces stormed the BP gas complex after the jihadists executed their non-Muslim POWs. At least 81 people have been killed, including two Americans. They were holding more than 600, but they released all the Muslims,  saying “they did not want to hurt Muslims. Some locals were forced to recite parts of the Koran to prove they were Muslims.”
The jihadists called their non-Muslim hostages “kuffar,” an ugly word meaning unbelievers. One Muslim hostage said: “Us Algerians were rounded up separately and were treated with kindness. We were told that because we were Muslim we would not be killed, and it was only the Christians they were after. The Algerian hostages were then allowed to leave. … I saw many Brits killed. One Westerner trying to give first aid was blown up by the terrorists.” At least five of the jihadis were  employees of the BP plant – which means they were thought to be “moderates.”
Yet despite the American loss of life, the president has not spoken of it or taken any leadership action on this act of war. The American media are following his lead. Every major world leader whose people were kidnapped and/or killed was addressing his parliament, media and the people of their countries: This act of war was a major news story everywhere except in America. U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron canceled a trip to address the House of Commons, where he called the jihadist attack on the BP gas field “brutal and  savage” (there’s that word again), and said the assault on the complex was “large, well-coordinated and heavily armed.” Coordinated by whom? Al-Qaida jihadists.
 Obama said recently: “We achieved our central goal, or have come very close to achieving our central goal, which is to de-capacitate al-Qaida, to dismantle them, to make sure that they can’t attack us again.” Yet while claiming that al-Qaida is being “de-capacitated,” he is supplying them. The Algerian jihadis  had weapons from Libya – that means we supplied them. Obama has consistently supported jihadists in Egypt, Libya, Syria, Tunisia, Burma, et al. Just as this led to the murder of Americans in Libya, so it has now in Algeria. The attackers who stormed our consulate (or whatever that building really was) in Benghazi were part of al-Qaida. While he tells us al-Qaida is vanquished, their attacks become more lethal, widespread and brazen.
The jihadis in Algeria were a  multinational group – emphasizing yet again that this is an ideological war, not a geographical one. A hostage said: “Of the terrorists, one was an Egyptian, another was Libyan and one was Syrian. Most of them were Algerian, but some of them had white skin and I think they were Canadian. Two were speaking fluent English.”
The Obama administration was neither advised nor consulted on the raid on the al-Qaida jihadists ahead of time: further proof of our diminished hegemony and the lack of respect Obama has engendered for America across the world.
Al-Qaida in Algeria was demanding a “trade” for the lives of non-Muslims. They wanted the blind sheikh, Omar Abdel Rahman, and Aafia Siddiqui, Lady al-Qaida. The release of effective jihadists is an objective of the global jihad: Muslim agitation and violence for the blind sheikh is widespread. On Sept. 11, 2012, Muslims stormed our embassy in Cairo and raised the flag of jihad over our embassy for the same reason. (Obama’s response was to apologize for hurting Muslim feelings.)
