It may have to do with the disposition of Morsi and the mo-bros in Egypt.

I thought that after Libya, Obama had dealt with Al-Qaeda. Silly me.

Interesting. I haven’t heard anything at the federal level (I work at a military base). I wonder where this intelligence is coming from?

Doesn’t make sense as we only shut down embassies on Sunday. The terrorist can easily wait to Monday when they reopen.

The Dear Leader armed them to the teeth with 20,000 MANPADs
and other WMD, while he claimed they did not exist.
... until they were fully armed,
and some diversion was needed from Benghazi,
the IRS Atrocity, and after warnings before the
Boston Atrocity were ignored.

For sure, or CNN wouldn’t be hyping the story. If something doesn’t benefit Obama, it doesn’t get reported.

That’s what I’m thinking. The British are usually pretty quick to pull their people out of harm’s way in the event of a perceived threat but they don’t seem terribly concerned this time.

Will CNN ever mention that Dear Leader called the war on terror over and won? Remember-Islamic terrorism is literally not in this president’s vocabulary. The philosophy of ‘close your eyes and it will go away’ will be Obama’s legacy.

Actually I read several reports saying they may not reopen Monday..they will make the decisions as the situation warrants.

I don’t know what to believe or trust- we’ll see. IF this really IS a big deal they may get away with an attack somewhere -maybe we’ll thwart some.

We did have some unusual aircraft intercept activity — or what looked like it — on the west coast (of the U.S.) yesterday, although we’re a long way from the Arabian Peninsula.

It is difficult to muster the denial necessary in order to believe anything the government says about anything. This current crop of DIM/LIB commies don’t understand the meaning of “truth”.

I heard yesterday the threat could be for the whole month... VERY specific it is they also say. Which is it? They have been trying to scare us since 9/11, and they always seem to miss the actual plots. Both Bush & Obama- countless issued warnings, did any of them come to pass?

I am inclined to not suspect al-Qaeda as much as some other, far more capable, player.

For instance, Iran has really gone to lengths to preposition al-Quds (Quds Force), which is active in dozens of countries and even has eight major directorates, or regional commands.

They have had some success in “setting up shop” in other countries, but have been singularly incompetent in carrying out terrorist acts or even simple assassinations. Likely because their organization has been penetrated by several intelligence agencies.

So, while their theoretical threat is considerable, practically speaking, they are bozos.

this is such garbage. The “alert” was just to create cover for the NSA spying program.

When nothing happens, which will probably be the case, they will run around spiking the football, braying, chest beating and claiming to have stopped it..

the media will lap it up..

"VERY specific it is they also say."

It's so specific that they don't even seem to know what country is targeted or what day the event will occur.

(excerpt)

The State Department, in addition to shutting embassies in countries including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Egypt, warned that tourist resorts, bus and rail systems and airlines could be targets, standard language that accompanies such alerts.

AQAP has successfully honed bombing technology that has previously threatened U.S.-bound air travel on passenger and cargo planes, making the organization one of the prime threats facing America and Yemen—and making Yemen of the most frequently targeted sites of the U.S. drone campaign.
