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.
Must be a lot of chatter too.
Feeling like we are living in a episode of “Alias”...TEOTWAWKI
While “this hand is getting our attention”...what is the government’s “other hand doing?” (I think I smell a rat).
I’m thinking possible false flag incident.
the chatter came from the WEST WING
This is Obamas way of Honoring Mohammad on the mooselim Night Of Power
"This is for Trayvon!"
Birthday-Boy's at Camp David playing golf today.
There may have been some “chatter” as they call it and might well be false flag by the enemy.
But I’m thinking they’re not Obama’s enemy, and this is just one big bullsh!t diversion from this administration.
These people (the Obama administration) are not interested in defeating the Jihadists. They are more interested in warning them and helping them avoid defeat.
Actually, I meant a false flag by this Administration.
OK - guess I am alright with this administration and friends reading my email and having my medical records... 8)
Hey, hey, hey, don't forget skeetin'.
They work with the OMG to plan their events. Axelrod and Plouffe are their contacts.
Who? Obama has officially become George W Bush. At least the left’s caricature of him.
If the collaborators in the state controlled media are trumpeting it, I assume there is some “angle” to it. Even if something does happen, it’s probably coordinated in some way to suit their propaganda narrative.
Or they could be "wagging the dog".
there has been an unending flow of breathless stories from Jolie's mastectomy to Zimmerman to the 3 girls escaping their captor that have been crowding out all of the phony scandals Obama is trying to avoid.
I heard the intel came from an aspirin factory in Sudan. The chatter translated says something about “wagging the dog”
Sick to DEATH of this traitor that inhabits the people’s house putting every bit of intel we have out for public consumption. There is a reason things like this are supposed to be kept confidential. Grrrr - how people could reelect this traitor is beyond me.
Which islamists is Juan hanging out with this weekend?
Well, yes. Although in the article it says our Intel people were surprised that Al Q broke their operational security and pretty much allowed or maybe wanted us to know.
The one thing I know is nothing makes sense and I don’t trust this administration. Maybe these guys in Al Q don’t care WHAT kind of help subtle and otherwise O has given them- they laugh at him and carry on.
Quite amazing how STUPID this administration is, regarding the handling of intel.
“Hey everybody, lookout for something!”
Now that is real helpful.....NOT!
The preferred approach is to place your intel gathering and response teams on high alert, WITHOUT NOTIFYING THE PUBLIC!!!
That is because for the public at large, YOU HAVE NOTHING TO TELL THEM, THAT IS OF ANY USE!!!
All you’ve accomplished is to let your enemy know you’re listening.
It's a media plan to justify the NSA monitoring every domestic communication.
Now, if Obama were to declare the US an islamic republic, that would be a media event. And strategically significant as well.
“Bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive.” That was Vice President Biden’s answer to the question of why President Obama should be given a second term.”
Examiner Editorial: Al Qaeda is alive and GM is half-dead
Oh, everything is planned these days yaknow.. like a cheap HollyWeeD script.. Wag Yur Poodle Part DeuX
AlQaeda, on the other hand, ditched their "phones" for old fashioned face to face years ago. Yes..some of us know and remember what has occurred.
So now that we are past the election, Obama has “more flexibility” to actually blame Al Qaeda embassy attacks on Al Qaeda?
When the government lies as much as the US government does, it should not be surprised if thinking people no longer accept what it says at face value.
However, the ruling elite are quite familiar with the moral of the “The Boy Who Cried Wolf”. They just understand that a large number of people simply don’t think, and their numbers are sufficient sustain a state of fear.
