US Embassies to close overunspecified threat
Al Qaeda threat closes some U.S. embassies - CNN.com


Is it just me, or is the timing of this (less then 72 hours after NSA revealed to be monitoring ALL internet communications) highly suspect? Like, they're trying to take the wind out of the public's outrage and show how "valuable" these programs are?

Or maybe they don't want people to be at extra risk at embassies after the Benghazi shitstorm?

Well they did blow it with the Boston Bombers, even with a tip from the Russians, so it seems we have idiots running the show.
What YouTube video is to blame THIS TIME???

I think the lid is about to blow off the fake Benghazi Scandal, with info on WHO the CIA was interrogating at their annex. Why would 21 CIA folks have to take repeated lie detector tests every month or so to "make sure" they had not talked to the press or Congress? It looks like major criminal negligence on the part of Hillary and the Administration. No wonder they changed the subject back to "The Economy" because that's the least damaged thing they've had their incompetent hands on. (!)

I agree with Dakar, I only want to add the horse is kinda out of the barn on the NSA thing.

Almost a year after Benghazi? I wonder what spooked them.

Add to that the revelation the survivors are disapearing into Witless Protection Program. Rumors have a gun smuggling operation was being run out of the consulate.

U.S. issues travel alert, to close embassies due to al Qaeda threat - CNN.com

So apparently it is a specific threat. Guess it'll come out in the wash.

I still don't understand what I'm supposed to take away from Benghazi other than it was a massive ****up.

Then Watergate was just a burglary.
 
subego Aug 4, 2013 01:53 AM
That doesn't really improve my understanding.
 
Chongo Aug 4, 2013 10:36 AM
If the truth ever gets out, Iran/Contra will look like chump change.

Rumors are flying around the Obama CIA was smuggling weapons to Syria, and it was a deal gone bad.
 
subego Aug 4, 2013 06:32 PM
To the Syrian government or the rebels?

So much for Al Qaeda being on the run.
 
subego Aug 6, 2013 02:02 AM
Now Al Qaeda knows that line of communication has been compromised...

Traitor! Traitor! TRAITOR!

It was.

Anyways, the timing of this is pretty suspect, but until I see the Administration bragging about how the NSA surveillance was responsible for "keeping us safe," I'll reserve judgement.

A lawyer representing a Benghazi member has stated they "lost" 400 surface to air missiles from that annex, and THAT is the real cover up. Now they are in AQ hands.

I like how modern journalisim is say whatever and add a question mark to it.

I'm Ron Burgundy?
