Poe Statement on the Hostage Crisis in Algeria

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Early reports to the State Department indicate that Al Qaeda operatives have taken hostages (including several Americans) at the British Petroleum facility in Algeria. I have been in direct contact with senior Administration officials handling the matter. I urge them to take swift action and do whatever is necessary to ensure the safe and prompt rescue of the hostages.

Congressman Ted Poe (TX-2) is Chairman of the Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade Subcommittee.
