Inside the Ring: New al Qaeda threat
Washington Times ^ | 31 January 2013 | Bill Gertz

Posted on 01/31/2013 7:54:16 AM PST by LSUfan

A jihadist website posted a new threat by al Qaeda this week that promises to conduct “shocking” attacks on the United States and the West.

The posting appeared on the Ansar al Mujahidin network Sunday and carried the headline, “Map of al Qaeda and its future strikes.”

The message, in Arabic, asks: “Where will the next strike by al Qaeda be?” A translation was obtained by Inside the Ring.

Al Qaeda warns of 'shocking' attack on USA...

Let's see, President Bush appeared on an aircraft carrier under a banner which said "Mission Accomplished," and got criticized for it. Obama declares that Al Qaeda was defeated. Since then, Al Qaeda has killed Americans and other Westerners in Benghazi and Algeria and French troops are locked in combat with Al Qaeda forces in Mali.

Now, Al Qaeda has issued an overt threat to conduct new attacks inside America. If these become reality, will President Obama be held to account for his public claim that Al Qaeda has been defeated, the way that President Bush was criticized for his "Mission Accomplished" appearance?

The “O” would only USE any attacks to his benefit and that of his “brothers”

Not on your life, Red Badger.

No matter how incompetent this child-king becomes, andrea mitchell & co. will still provide maximum cover for him.

Careful what you say...... remember we no longer have the power of a color coded threat assessment chart.

This could be a good way to reduce the Islamic presence on the North American Continent.

A liberal here where I work was praising his 60 minutes interview like it was the Sermon on the Mount.

0bambi is funding Al Qaeda in Syria $155 million, according to news reports yesterday.

The Saudis (et. al.) also funded the “Syrian People” (a.k.a. Al Qaeda in Syria) to the tune of $1 billion yesterday.

The Syrian weapons stockpiles are opening up to Al Qaeda.

Why shouldn’t we expect excellent attacks from Al Qaeda? We fund them!

How quickly we moved from "overwhelming force" to "smart power".

Dangerously sad.

Was Mumbai a dry run? Dress rehearsal? Al Queda did a rehearsal of their 911 attack in Nepal and Afghanistan to prove the theory that the authorities would negotiate with terrorists after they killed a passenger and allow the plane to keep flying. After that attack they were convinced that they could take over an airliner by killing passengers and crew. They also convinced their own attackers that they had a plan to survive and escape.
There is no doubt an attack like Mumbai could spread terror and confusion in a big city and confuse the responders with multiple mobile attacks.

Yep. So far, he's blamed the weather, Japan, the muslim spring, Sandy, and of course George Bush, and I'm sure others I can't remember right now, for his failing economic policies. When the bond crash hits and the derivatives explode, he's going to need something bigger than cow farts to blame it on.

He's even tried to appoint, and will probably succeed, a Republican Secretary of Defense so he can blame REPUBLICANS for all his defense failures. Hagel is being set up right now to take the fall and blame. The stupid party will probably play along, too.

“Let France be prepared, and let the helpers of France be prepared, for it is going to be a long war of attrition.”

We've gone from being "The Great Satan" to "helper of France"? We as a nation should be insulted. I demand a return to Great Satan status.

Heck no. The billions of tax dollars he's sent to them were tithes for Allah. He's doing it voluntarily!

Conjecture: muliple and simultaneous attacks on soft targets like schools, sporting events, theme parks.

The economy is in the tank, freedom is withering and the Middle East is on fire. Obama has a 60% positive rating. There is only one answer. Satan’s forte is deception.

This is not a recent development. In the 80's the US used Al Qaeda to attack the Russians and in the 90's the were used to attack the Serbians. More recently they were used to attack Libya.

Yet the TSA has to grope American citizens at the airports and spy on all our emails because of Al Qaeda might get us. See how that works.
