An American is among the at least 12 Algerians and foreigners who are known dead from the terrorist takeover at a natural gas facility in eastern Algeria, the state Algerian Press Service and U.S. officials said Friday.

Al-Qaeda-linked terrorists continued to hold as many as seven hostages, according to API. U.S. officials told the Associated Press that am American died in the hostage standoff: Texas resident Frederick Buttaccio. It is unclear how he died.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak publicly on the matter, say Buttaccio's remains have been recovered and his family has been notified.

The Algerian news service, noting that its figures are "provisional," said 18 of the kidnappers were also "put out of action."

Only an autopsy will reveal whether this man was killed by the terrorists or by friendly fire by a botched rescue mission.

2. heard a right wing talk show host go loony on this last night

"Brett Winterble", KFMB, San Diego: It's all Obama's fault, of course, because Obama stopped torture, because he cut and ran from Iraq, because he has announced our plans to leave Afghanistan, because of Benghazi, because of coddling Islamic terrorists. I will post it here http://www.dailykos.com/blog/WCWatch or here https://www.youtube.com/user/LocalMediaMonitor if I get the chance
