Chambliss, sources: Terror chatter beyond anything heard since before 9/11
Fox News ^ | August 4 2013 | Staff

Posted on 08/04/2013 9:50:48 AM PDT by yoe

The so-called “chatter” about a terror plot that led the Obama administration to close 22 U.S. embassies and consulates Sunday across the Muslim world goes beyond anything heard before the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, according to the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee and Fox News sources.

Sen. Saxby Chambliss, of Georgia, said Sunday the so-called “chatter” detected by U.S. intelligence agencies that led the Obama administration to order the closures and issue a global travel warning to Americans is "very reminiscent of what we saw pre-9/11."

[snip] A Mideast diplomat says al-Zawahiri “pressuring” Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula to launch new terrorist attacks on Western and American targets is “unprecedented.”

Sources also told Fox News the extraordinary volume of “chatter” follows months of “absolute quietness” on terrorist phone lines, computer outlets, websites and other communication outlets.

The Obama/Jarrett tragic lack of Foreign Policy and Jet Setting Hillary have enabled Al-Qeada to rise....while Obama fiddled, AL-qaeda has refitted for the coming battle...the POTUS thinks he is community organizing...the enemy knows better. Will Americans take America back from these dangerous idiots?

Why not tell them exactly were monitoring is working and where it is not?

I sure hope this is disinformation that is driving the enemy into a net.

This is just the Obama Administration alerting disparate radical Muslim groups that too many of their communications channels have become compromised and their methods need to change. Obama’s cronies have indeed revealed “too much,” but on purpose.

And because of 0bama’s past actions, nobody believes a damn word coming from this regime.

So, he’s put his regime in the box of no-win.

If there’s no attack, everyone will say he’s lying about this threat too..
If there is an attack, everyone will blame him for not protecting us.

Ok. So if they heard all that terror chatter prior to 9/11...why didn’t they do anything then?

Rep. Adam Schiff was on CNN's state of the union with Candy Crowley. He's on the house intelligence committee and he heard the full briefing from the administration.

Candy asked him the when and where question, he said "the when was very specific in terms of a Sunday".

I’m wondering if this chatter itself is not the attack in this instance. The timing, coming after the Snowden leaks is right for that scenario and people have been saying that the terrorists have changed communications since. My thought is that they might be purposefully setting off our alarms, saying “boo!” as a disinformation campaign leading up to an eventual attack.

I wasn’t the only one who noticed guys in fatigues at Walmart yesterday. A friend from church did too. She mentioned that none of them had a cart or were in check out lines.

It certainly was busy. All counters open with long lines. They even ran out of carts.

The "WWIII" chatter they hear is our American Grannies phone messages saying that they are going to kick this Admins posterior for spying on us for the personal gain of the DC power structure. 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. D@mn manipulators....

In other news..the NSA uncovered the phone messages of some average kid in Boston who will not be profiled. His conversions with his mother were mysteriously sold via spyware to the cooking channel and Rolling Stone magazine. The NSA spokesperson commented,"Mission accomplished".
