Response to Purveyor (Original post)

4. So there were over 700 hostages, and the Algerian army rescued about 670 of them

I hope the few remaining are freed as well, but so far it sounds like they took care of things very well.

So they made a quick decision and acted decisively without asking for permission from the traditional white patriarchy...s'what the WSJ's "analysis" sounds like to me.

From an Algerian perspective, I think the strong and independent response is exactly the signal they needed to send to the militants - that they aren't weak and they aren't puppets.
