FBI is involved. Let the FBI unleash HRT. Pretty sure one team is there.

Some of you know that I live in France, here is the basic feedback that I'm getting from the media over here :
- As things stand negotiation with the suspects is the number one priority
- Special forces and police have locked down the village where this is going down. The suspects have no longer any chance of escaping.
- The police don't want to rush anything : they have the situation under control, and are working for the most victimless outcome possible
As this is my first reaction over the situation here on ATS I'd like to add that unlike many who have been commenting the deaths, I grew up reading Charlie Hebdo. Cabu and Charb, in particular were two of my favorite caricaturists. I feel like I have lost a bunch of friends. I am very, very sad.
What saddens me even more, I think, are the reactions of those who would respond to fundamentalists as fundamentalists themselves. Charlie fought against ALL reactionnaries, and seeing their deaths instrumentalised by a growing fringe of ignorant warmongers sickens me to the core. The dead would not have wanted that. The dead spent every living second making fun of ignorance, and that is why they died.
