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".

If a big terrorist attack on America like the one we saw on 09-11-01 (Remember that?) occurs, I wouldn’t expect the same kind of response we saw back on 09-12-01. America is not longer a united country. I’ll bet a dollar to a donut that all of the government buffoons in Washington, including the IRS, are already going through every video clip on YouTube looking for one to blame any new terrorist attack on. I’ll also bet that Barry is already packed for another World Apology Tour/fundraiser. Good luck America! We’re going to need it this time. We don’t have anything else.

That was on the report that Bill Clinton had made marginal notes on - which then had to be stolen from the National Archives by Sandy Burger at the time they were having hearings on 9/11 - Clinton had said that he had never been informed of any possible terrorist plots, but obviously, he had been (and ignored it).

How much of that information even got forwarded to Bush inthe few months between his inauguration and 9/11 is unclear. Bush had trouble getting any of his appointees confirmed speedily, difficulty getting information out of the people who had been agency heads under Clinton, etc.

Get prepped. Al Qeada has been given one of the greatest Islamic martyrs in world history. And Obama gave them the martyr Osama just to help cover a stupid Presidential election he was stealing. Unbelievable.

I don’t mean to sound jaded but why all of a sudden just as there is a big push back agains’t the NSA spying on all of us does this major chatter start up?

If Al Queda blows up the Mall of GA tomorrow I’ll apologize profusely but I’m having to ask the question why does Al Queda want to terrorize us as we are arming them with munitions from Libya and sending them all over to Syria to fight Assad? We are practically their bosom buddy.

Yeah, it does sound a little like “oh look, all this spying was useful after all” notwithstanding the fact that at 9/11 the spying wasn’t that deep and this is the same chatter they are talking about. When they catch a jihadist with a nuke in his sock drawer due to a Facebook post or something, then tell us.

Will Americans take America back from these dangerous idiots?

The majority of Americans do not have the will or drive to do anything except demand their government handouts. Nor do they have the moral or spiritual insight to know right from wrong.

I honestly don't see it happening, but, I've been wrong before, once or twice.

Close the embasssies so that hussein and crew can say they did “something” before the nuke goes off in an American city.

But, but, but I thought Obumma had ended the war on terror???? Maybe this is a new terror source, like the Amish or the evangelical Christians. Yeah, that must be it, because Obumma has made the Mooslimbs realize that we aren’t the enemy (as long as we submit to there whims).

Hmmm, I’ve tried it, but liberal think just doesn’t work for me. I must have too many brain cells which get in the way of liberal brain programming.

Exactly. Radical Islamic terror groups are the muscle for the globalists. They use them whenever they need to use fear to further their aims, a distraction or, for whatever reason, need to make their WH puppet (R or D) look like a strong man.

Oh, the Islamic mischief on these shores could be great if their demon willed it (and God permitted it). “Leaving” would mean little if the beast were truly provoked. To them Israel is only the small satan, and the USA the great one.
