WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is convening an unprecedented mass meeting of U.S. ambassadors.

This indicates to me, they have no idea what has happened on the ground in the middle east and worldwide and this multiple uprising was unseen and scaring the living daylights out of the administration.
The landscape is changing fast under their feet and they know it and tells me, they are not sure that communications are yet secure which is frankly the scariest part.
Maybe she’s announcing that she’s stepping down to run for prez.
Officials also expect that specific concerns about the WikiLeaks revelations will be raised.
Is it to the point where there are no more secure
communications? This is unprecidented. It feels
like the beginning of ww II... or is it III?
Uh-oh. Just when the situation cries out most for leadership, Obama’s Cabinet cowards hide amongst groupthink. And when things go bad, they’ll use the excuse “well all the experts to us to do this ...”, to wash their hands of all responsibility. Yeah right.
Clearly, the Obama Administration hasn’t got a clue what to do about Egypt.
“Consensus is the absence of leadership.”

[This will be Obama’s Albatross]
somethings up, you don’t do this without a damn good reason. I generally tend to think, they now realise the crapola payload just hit the fan at hurricane speed.
It might be that Clinton will be giving marching orders to the State Department not to reduce anything to e-mails and two conduct business only orally. This would be a very dangerous modus operandi.
It might be that this presages and even more leftward bent in American foreign policy which the administration wants to conceal for a while.
Whatever the reason, I want congressional oversight and I want hearings both public and en camera to force this administration with its questionable loyalties to the ideal of the United States of America to be held to account.
certainly it needs to be recorded for congressional and judicial record.
Why teleconference, or even make simple phone calls, when you can take advantage of a good crisis to promote yourself with a giant, “unprecedented” photo op? Somewhere, Rahm Emanuel is grinning like the cat that ate the canary.
may be the fact that they really don’t trust communications, maybe we do have a BIG problem there they aint letting on about.
They trained the protestors to overthrow the Egyptian government like good little communist community organizers and how to re-establish a new, “democratic” government.
But they had no clue or plan for the US when the s - they tossed around like baboons, hit the fan.
How their gaming would effect the US is an after thought in their global social engineering games.
It would seem from the timing that this has been
in the works for some time, how else can these
people expect to attend in time or is this a cyber
meeting? Do they expect other embassies to come
Unusual to say the least.
ANY ideas on what is really going on here?
Like everything else with this administration...it’s historic!
Hillary’s moment in the sun.
“They trained the protestors to overthrow the Egyptian government like good little communist community organizers and how to re-establish a new, democratic government.”
Maybe they are trying to decided which government they will take down next.
Perhaps it’s finnaly time to unveil the big plan... Obama and the Clintons are forming a new Global Government. China is going to finance it, and Putin will head up the new world police force.
Shrillary laying the foundation for a palace coup...?
Not a clue, but to be honest this scares the cr@p out of me. I see no way that this can be a good sign.
1) It shows that they do not have a secure means of communication, or at least they do not believe they do.
2) It shows that they have something important enough to discuss, en toto, that would require a secure means of communication which is currently unavailable.
3) It is occurring during the fall of Egypt, and amidst the fall of multiple other countries, to Islamic rule.
4) It is gathering a multitude of KEY PERSONNEL in one area, which is a security nightmare. Someone with the drive and means could turn this into a deadly affair.
5) Obama is echoing the words of the Muslim Brotherhood and, according to some reports from BBC Arabic, is backing ElBaradei as the replacement for Mubarak.
I’m sure I could go on, but why bother? We know this is bad. How can it not be? Obama has screwed up everything else since he took office, why not add global war to his list of flubs?
A big PR stunt to show they are doing something, anything. To show that Hill and Obozo aren't total idiots when it comes to foreign policy. What you need to know is that Democrats hate foreign policy and love domestic policy. Domestic policy means buying votes with your tax dollars. Foreign policy gets them nothing as far as votes...at least that's their logic. So screw it and that is why Obunghole sent Hillary to off to be Secretary of State. Out of the loop
Have you seen her on TV? She catatonically mumbles platitudes and nothings. She must be on meds or has suffered IQ decline
Hillary will announce to then in secret eetings, that the New World Order is about to be declared, and is giving them their marching orders. Why by meeting? Simple.
None of the COMS to the ambassadors are secure enough to give out the marching orders and policy changes, without them leaking. This is transparent government at its best/S/.Americans in their ignorance, are being led like sheep to the slaughter. Our tradtional allies are about to be abandoned. (Say good bye to NATO.Bye bye, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea. The American left is throwing you to the dogs.) Our newest allies will be nations who forward the World Wide Caliphate, with whom Obama will later declare an alliance.
This is the likely purpose of the meeting.
It will also distract from the dismantling of Death Care.
The American people are the enemies of their own government, and the executive branch is out of control.No crisis will go unexploited in order to destroy patriotic America.(Part of that plan is to pillory Sarah Palin, so she will not be able to save America.)
It’s probably new rules on how to transmit diplomatic cables, so to ensure that another Wikileaks doesn’t happen again.
sounds like its basically a get your asses here quick conference.
I really think they are very worried and not sure what the lay of the land is, maybe this wikileaks thing did way more damage than we thought and the intelligence is not forthcoming like before hence being caught way off guard.
If they wanted a photo op, you can bet Bambi would have had every world leader under the sun here for a world crisis conference.
Sound and fury signifying nothing....appearance over substance.
Hillary has got to be the most incompetent SOS in the history of the U.S.
Glad we don’t have the Cold war going on or Islamo-fascism taking over the middle east or something. Then we’d all be up sh!t creek /s
P.J. O’rourke had it right when the Clinton’s first came to office:
“We’re being governed by dorm room bull session. The Clinton administration is over there right now pulling an all-nighter in the West Wing. They think that, if they can just stay up late enough, they can create a healthy economy and bring peace to former Yugoslavia”....or in this case Egypt.
There’s been a rumor of Bill fooling around with an intern at some embassy somewhere. Hillary wants answers.
If you were a radical muzzie, the best time to move would be while a sympathizer is in power.
This is kinda ... spooky.
Clinton, “ Now remember, if you are under siege and
are taken hostage.....I will be writing letters of
recommendation to your captors telling them what
good employees you all are and begging for your release.
Please do not defend yourselves, it might give the wrong
impression. Thank you.”
well perhaps that wikileaks crap stuffed up intelligence completely, its probably dried up, no ones talking and getting the info we used to from informers, hence the 2x4 round the head and they didnt see this coming.
Thanks to amateur hour from Obama who is probably wafting round poppyfields as we speak on a unicorn.
notice how we find out about this in the middle of the night.
it always starts "historic" and, yet, always ends "unexpected"...
Anyone who thinks this is serious meeting is assuming the adults are in charge. Diplomatic leaks are not much concern to Hussein and Hillary
Ithink once again, we fail to step back, and look at the facts of this administration.
From the beginning, an Hillary Clinton is the master of this, whenever there is any kind of crisis, they form the appearance that they’re doing something, when in factthey’re doing nothing.
Bringing in all the ambassadors, surely at millions of dollars expense, is for show pure and simple. In this day and age, youcan convey a meeting via satellite whereby everyone is there.....
But no, Clinton wants us to think that they’re engaging in some hard boiled thinking.
When you have an administration that has no foundation, you get this muck.
They have no clue what to do, but for sure anything that can be gleaned from this politically will be done.
CLinton has got to be the worst SOS in my life time, or one of them.
Wonder what Kissinger has to say about all this.
Consider what this is costing in travel, accomodations
I feel like we should be waiting for some Japanese
staffer to finish typing up a translation...
So today through tuesday or wednesday all our embassies
will be under the second in command? Smart...../s.
I think it has the opposite effect, people may see this and think, WTF, something is going down. It does not make me feel secure in the least after the last few months that they are doing this.
I think it is a meeting to destroy any evidence that could be used against Hillary Clinton and/or the Obama Administration.
It’s a mass firing just like when Billy got rid of all the federal attoneys .
You should probably see this.
Hillary! rode her husband’s coattails into power. She is where she is simply by standing by her man in marriage. She is not the accomplished, self-made woman the left would have us believe.
And her boss’ resume consists of rabble rousing, campaigning and editing a newsletter somewhere.
I don’t expect them to know what to do.
The a scared....well without any poo... they all left brown stains on the Oval Office floor this weekend.
Add onto the emergency meeting of the Treasury department ...
I'd say their little regime change attempt went very badly and they didn't have a back-up plan.
Now is the time to lay in some reserves. This is going to be a very, very long haul and the whole world has changed. 0bama and his clan have successfully made the world a very hostile place. Freedom loving Egyptians have traded in their dictator for the bonds of Muslim Brotherhood slavery.
The longer Mubarak holds on in Egypt the more time the world has to prepare, but now is the time to lay in the last of your own security plans.
Agree. And I don't get the concerns over security of communications. She's going to communicate a secret message to 260 envoys and expect it to stay a secret??
Egyptian film legend Omar Sharif joins calls for President Hosni Mubarak to step down
lol, that’ll convince...oh no not Omar Sharif, i really must go now......not.

This Secretary of State makes Maddy look good. As usual the academics were caught unaware of world situations.
One can not know the pulse of body politics when all you do is meet with the couterparts in plush environs without looking outside.
Hildabeast is a fool, or idiot savant if one prefers.
Perfect pick by Obama.
When hillary was running for pres, she had about as much leadership and management experience as obama. She is just like obama except in different packaging. Since she and her boss have no clue what to do about this mess, they are going to convene all the ambassadors, some of whom actually have experience. They will cherry pick the best ideas and put in motion. If it goes well, then obama and hillary will take the credit. If it goes bad, then the poor sucker who offered up the idea will get the blame.
