On the day that almost two dozen U.S. embassies and consulates across North Africa and the Middle East are closed following the identification of a significant threat from an al-Qaeda affiliate, a senior U.S. official is providing new details about the communications intercepted from the terrorists, telling ABC News that al-Qaeda operatives could be heard talking about an upcoming attack. The official described the terrorists as saying the planned attack is going to be big and strategically significant. The part that is alarming is the confidence they showed while communicating and the air of certainty, the official said, adding that the group Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula appeared to have a media plan for after the attack.
I just don’t believe anything this government says anymore, nor it’s lapdog media. We shall see.
ACTUAL headline begins with “Senior U.S. Official:” but it wouldn’t fit
I know- neither do I but I’m starting to think this is real.
The Muslims may be evil — but some of them are also pretty smart.
No, the more “senior” officials talk about it the more I think it’s pure distraction BS.
Benghazi Rice ?
Eh... it may or may not be real. I don’t even think the gov’t knows any more.
I don’t think they’re this obvious.
The real Muslim we have to worry about is the one in the White House.
AQ has been racking up success after sucess with no pushback from the sympathizer/enabler in the WH. They killed a US Ambassador and the perpetrators are having coffee klatches with the media in public places - what's not to be confident about? Omedia himself will be glad to oblige AQ after any attack with lots of jaw-flapping, self-agrandizing TV time ... thus giving them plenty of publicity.
Yeah..and maybe it’s for the mainland and not overseas..
Amen to that.
I’d be willing to say that if this government thinks it has to do with their embassies, it is totally something else, if that.
I honestly believe this is a blown-out-of-portion exercise meant to instill a sense of confidence that they have their eye on the ball and that there is no way they could have done as whispered around this country that they intentionally let those embassy people die in Benghazi to cover up a CIA operation to move SAMs from Libya to Syria....
Actual history and events will have to prove me wrong. Attack, or no attack. But there is still a high chance that even when nothing happens this administration can claim “preemptive victory” because they were so vigil...either way for Obama - Win, win, right?
Hey. Anybody seen Obama? Anybody?
It is funny (weird funny, not ha ha funny) that no one I’ve spoken to this weekend believes any of this. It will be sad if they hit us hard and we are taken by “surprise.” But I just don’t believe what they tell me. Everything lately has been geared towards distraction or deflection.
Anyway...if they hit ME I will take it like a man.
Talk about a non nuclear weapon. Now the USA can be brought to its knees with a cell phone call. WTG Administration!!!
The tail is wagging the crap out of the dog.
Spot on. Next we will find out how helpful the NSA was in uncovering this plot. Blah Blah Blah
Ditto for here too. I’ll take it like a man, too, but I’ll give it like one also. Obama won’t be anywhere around, as usual.
