Map of Countries Where Al Qaeda and Its Affiliates Operate
The New York Times ^ | September 30, 2011 | MARK MAZZETTI, ERIC SCHMITT and ROBERT F. WORTH

Posted on 09/16/2012 2:16:18 PM PDT by Fpimentel

If the New York Times is aware that Al Qaeda has been operating in Libya since September 30th 2011, why is the White House taken off guard by the attack on our Embassy in Libya? Doesn't anyone "war game" this stuff out and plan and prepare to defend against an attack?

"Tonight, we are a country awakened to danger and called to defend freedom. Our grief has turned to anger and anger to resolution. Whether we bring our enemies to justice or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done."

-President Bush September 20th 2001

I noticed that also. I keep saying it, but It’s amazing how many folks on both the left and right fail to recognized we are at war and under attack here and throughout the world

Does the Obama Administration count as a mere operation? The answer may lie there.

Also Italy, France, the UK. I'm not sure why anyone even bothers to look at the New York Times any more. It's sad, just 30 years ago it was actually the "paper of record," or at least many of us thought it was.

Now it's just a farce. Or, worse, a direct propaganda arm of our totalitarian government.

No point in getting tangled up with worrying about what gang colors they wear.

Compare that to the map of recent ‘demonstrations’ and ‘attacks’ in the Middle East.

I'm trying to think of a country where they don't operate.
There must be one or two rinky dink island nations they haven't bothered with.
Don't anyone hold their breath until I come back with a name.

Iran is majority Shi’ite. AQ is Sunni. They wouldn’t get along too well.

According to the left, ‘it’s our fault’.

They will never see it any differently.

This map is ridiculous.

The London bombings and the multiple attempted bombings since then pretty much confirm that Al-Qaeda has members in the UK (no surprises there)

They also forgot to include the Chavezsphere where terrorists are being trained in the jungles (Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Argentina)

No, they were operating our of Iraq. Jaysh Al Mahdi (Messiah’s Army) were being trained/equipped by Iranian gov’t/military against us.

JAM and AQ had frequent run-ins. Shi’ites in/around Sadr City would never give up JAM folks since they were often protecting the populace against the AQ and other assorted Sunni death squads.

It was a real mess over there.

They can’t include the US because if they did, too many questions would be raised by the populace.

Continue lulling the people to sleep and pretend that the US is in no danger and that everything is alright until the next big hit.

The map is definitely weak, but it is obvious to even the NYT’s that Al Qaeda has a strong presence in Northern Africa. It was Obama’s failure to protect our Embassy’s. Have these guys ever heard of a bomb shelter?

I want to know why U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens was given orders to return to this death trap by 9/11.

Yeah, guess they don’t want to publish that.

It might get the leftist thinking.
