Chadian President Says Govt. in 'Total Control' After Rebel Assault

If you were in 'Total Control' you wouldn't have had a rebel assault in the first place now would you?

Chad's President Idriss Deby says his government is in" total control" of the entire country after an assault by rebels on the capital, N'Djamena, that left more than 100civilians dead.

"Oh everything's fine."

Mr. Deby made the comment Wednesday in his first public appearance since the rebel assault began late last week.

"I just got out of bunker a few miles underground. Everything is under control."

An exiled Chadian rebel spokesman, Makaila Nguebla, says the insurgents are 30 kilometers outside the capital and could carry out new attacks over the next days.
"I, however, am as far away from the capital as possible. Hey, you can't expect a rebel spokesman to get involved in the fighting. I might get hurt. My job is to simply have a goal that OTHER people die for."
