US To Close Its Embassies Due To Terrorist Threat

From ABC News:

US Embassies to Close Sunday Amid Terrorist Threat

By MARTHA RADDATZ, DANA HUGHES, and CHRIS GOOD | August 1, 2013

U.S. embassies in a slew of Muslim countries will close on Sunday due to a credible and serious security threat.

Has someone uploaded another anti-Mohammed video to YouTube?

The embassies will close in response to "a specific threat against a U.S. embassy or consulate," according to a senior U.S. official, who called it a "concerted effort" to target an embassy or consulate in a Muslim country.

"We just don’t know which one," the official told ABC News. "There could be other targets, not just embassies," another U.S. official said. The threat is considered to be throughout the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia.

It’s a good thing we spend trillions of dollars on intelligence agencies to know these things.

Some of the biggest U.S. embassies will close, including those in Egypt, Iraq, Qatar, Bahrain and Kuwait, where tens of thousands of U.S. troops are based. The U.S. embassy in Afghanistan will also close. So will embassies in Dhaka, Bangladesh; Amman, Jordan; Muscat, Oman; Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; Algiers, Algeria; Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates; Sana’a, Yemen; and Tripoli, Libya, according to security warnings issued by those embassies. Two consulates in Saudi Arabia will also close, in Dharan and Jeddah, as will a consulate in Dubai, United Arab Emirates…

The embassies could remain closed past Sunday.

But doesn’t this mean that ‘the terrorists have won’? What a show of power this will be for the terrorists. But how is it even possible, since we have been told that Obama has the Taliban and Al Qaeda on the run?

While next week will mark the Muslim holiday of Eid, and the end of Ramadan, a U.S. official declined to draw any connection between the security threat and the Muslim holy calendar…

Surely there is no connection between these threats and the Religion Of Peace.

A senior U.S. official called today’s move a "real precedent-setting event."

It’s just another new normal in the Golden Age of Obama.

  2. Oh, so now US Embassies get security protection? On Dear Leader’s birthday?

    How’s that Nobel Peace Prize working out for you, Nancy?

  3. They know of a specific threat to an embassy, they just don’t know which one. The liberal dictionary has changed the meaning of yet another word. Specific now means specific only in the most general of terms.

    I’ll bet they could go through the posts here at S&L and tell each of us what we had for breakfast and how much money is in our bank accounts. And they know all that because they’re keeping us safe from terrorists. Funny, I don’t feel safe.

    On Sunday, when muslims all over North Africa and the Middle East are burning Obama in effigy, I wonder how the spin machine will handle it. “Oh, well, uh, fire is actually a symbol of tribute to the greatness of the wun” Burn baby burn. Nah, they’ll probably just skip news from that part of the world and cram some Hollywierd actress’s DUI dashcam footage on us. Where’s Lindsay Lohan when you need her?

    Please wake me up, I’m tired of this nightmare.

    They had another survivor (one of the over 30 hidden) who testified behind closed doors. Of course it’s not a national security. This is not the new one outed who won’t speak or show his face that carried out one of the dead soldiers and laid on top of the compound roof for 20 hours and managed not to bleed to death who nearly lost his leg.

    Any attacks on any US embassies just may be never told in the future as they figure how to better keep secret attacks US embassies so phony people who are dead and held up at Walter Reed
    aren’t known about.

    If they really watched the compound then it would not surprise me they watched that man for twenty hours on the roof hoping he would die.

    The 30 of the survivors need to quit hiding or they will always have to watch their back as some in the govt may fear some day they will come forward. They need to do it for those that died; the phony Americans who died.
