Let's close the federal Government until 0bama is out of office.

That is the safest bet of any.

Statement from the State Department:

Statement on Update of Embassy and Consulate Closure Press Statement Jen Psaki
Spokesperson, Office of the Spokesperson
Washington, DC
August 4, 2013

Given that a number of our embassies and consulates were going to be closed in accordance with local custom and practice for the bulk of the week for the Eid celebration at the end of Ramadan, and out of an abundance of caution, we've decided to extend the closure of several embassies and consulates including a small number of additional posts.

This is not an indication of a new threat stream, merely an indication of our commitment to exercise caution and take appropriate steps to protect our employees including local employees and visitors to our facilities.

Posts in Abu Dhabi, Amman, Cairo, Riyadh, Dhahran, Jeddah, Doha, Dubai, Kuwait, Manama, Muscat, Sanaa, Tripoli, Antanarivo, Bujumbura, Djibouti, Khartoum, Kigali, and Port Louis are instructed to close for normal operations Monday, August 5 through Saturday, August 10.

The following posts that are normally open on Sunday, but were closed on Sunday, August 4, are authorized to reopen for normal operations on August 5: Dhaka, Algiers, Nouakchott, Kabul, Herat, Mazar el Sharif, Baghdad, Basrah, and Erbil.

And they didn't do this to protect Chris Stevens, because he and the CIA were neck deep in illegal arms trafficking to the Muslim Brotherhood, and there was an election to win.

I am wrong?

to protect their Koran and their Islamic/Lying way of life.

American embassies on Islamic soil are an affront to Muslims. They want us out. So what does Zero do? He withdraws, with the excuse of ‘terrorist traffic,’ but in reality out of deference for the month of Ramadan. Hence, my guess is that these embassies will remain closed for the entire “holy” month.

I wonder how the MSM would handle the story. No matter how they try to spin it, at least 70% of the country will NOT be ok with Hussein catching in the White House. And make no mistake, that fairy is the catcher..

In my opinion, they are doing this all wrong.
They should have never leaked any information...played along like everything was Business As Usual.
Then, quietly replace all embassy staffs with Marines, Special Forces and the like.
Arm the embassies like Fort Knox.

Then - let them come, and wipe them all out.

‘Course, we have Obama and his cadre of losers in the White House, so I guess self defense would be out of the question...

Isn't this the truth! It's a shame we have to suspect this President but I don't trust him at all....He and his team would create a crisis if necessary.

If I’m to believe the extent of this dire threat, I’d question the end time to be August 10... seems to me, after whatever happens... happens, then there won’t be any remnants of a country to re-open anything anyways.

How can the Obama administration know that the threat will be over by a specific date, August 10th, if it doesn’t know enough about the threat to prevent it?

How would you like to be a U.S. embassy employee in the Middle East returning to work on August 11th?

America has become the land of the semi "free" and home if the wusses! America's new policy under Obama has become:

"Run away and hide from Islamic MUSLUM terrorists instead of "STAND Up, HOLD FAST and FIGHT to DESTROY THEM". Our founding Fathers along with the American fighting men of our past ARMED FORCES woulld be ashamed of what we have become under this evil, gutless, tyrannical, Obamessiah administration. I know I am... it breaks my heart.

Somewhat off topic but about a crisis past. Does it bother anyone in the media or political world that according to the new book about the Kennedys it seems JFK and most of his Excomm people were on the 60s equivalent of crystal meth during the Cuban Missile Crisis?

So they are closing these for the protection of
their “employees”?

Kinda makes me wonder what their employers are suppose
to do, stuck in a foreign land with no access to their
supposed “government”.

As a citizen I sure wouldn’t want to be overseas
and having to depend on Obamagov for my protection.

This is extraordinary. The list of countries are not normally considered a threat such as Kuwait and Dubai and Abu Dhabi...

If our government knows who the bad guys are then why arent we sending drones instead of closing embassies? This is making no sense all of a sudden.

Heard there was a high level meeting at the WH yesterday with most of the high level persons present. The one missing that was not mentioned was The One. Wonder where he was? Also would like to know if he is fasting from sunrise to sunset.
