Terror Threat Intelligence Not New, Agencies knew of threat to embassies, officials for months
Free Beacon ^ | 8/5/13 | : Bill Gertz

Posted on 08/05/2013 4:18:37 PM PDT by Nachum

Intelligence regarding al Qaeda plans to attack U.S. embassies, officials, and interests last Sunday was known for months by U.S. intelligence agencies but was used only recently to trigger the closure of embassies and issuance of public warnings of impending attacks.

Al Qaeda “chatter” about coming terrorist operations, mainly against 22 U.S. embassies and consulates, and threats to attack or bomb officials in the Middle East and elsewhere was widely reported in classified intelligence reports over several months. The report said an attack was planned for Sunday, although no attack was carried out.

The intelligence was based on electronic surveillance of al Qaeda communications indicating some type of spectacular bombing or other attacks was being planned and would in fact be carried out very soon.

The timing of the administration’s announced closure of numerous U.S. embassies in the Middle East has raised concerns among some U.S. officials that the Obama administration is politicizing intelligence to distract attention from the Benghazi and other scandals.

I suppose that reads as "This stinks!"

The POTUS and the Arabs have one thing in common: all talk and almost no action. Yakyakyak.

Tinfoil(?) take: NSA will be credited for thwarting a large attack. NSA good, sheeple. We need more surveillance!

Not at all. There is plenty of nasty sh** he can and will pull. It's going to be a bumpy ride.

This whole thing has the stink of cover up (NSA/CIA) around it. Another masterful diversion to fool the great unwashed.

I submit several observations:

1. With the nation-wide exposure and public outcry of the NSA invasive programs, with world-wide condemnation, especially from Europe, and the timing of this warning - this may well be a manufactured emergency in an attempt to make NSA appear needed.

2. With the outing of NSA massive data collection operation, it is very possible, if not probable, that our enemies are playing cat and mouse with us. They know that by planting false reports they will cause havoc. And, as we see, it can be successful.

3. Also, recall that before Bush was out office AQ and Taliban had ceased using internet and telephone communication because it was being intercepted by the US intelligence. What caused them to begin again, knowing it would tip off their enemies - that’s us.

Well, that’s my analysis - what do you think???

THey supposedly stopped when Leaky Leahy tipped them off and they supposedly stopped again when Edward Snowden tipped them off.

Frankly I think they're feeding us a line of bull.

Obama is creating cover for something. This cretin and his minions have become so predictable.

With the “breaking CNN News” that there were 30 plus CIA agents on the ground in Benghazi, this is likely an attempt to say “WE NEED SECRECY!!!!” Never mind that if there was a real threat to the embassies, our brilliant leaders have given away the opportunity to set traps.

Pathetic children are at the controls, and we are all in clear and present danger from them more than any terrorists.

Just remember what the creep’s old Chief of Staff said...”no good crisis go to waste”.

Includes manufactured crises.

Let's see....several months....How does 911, 2012 fit??? That would be nine months.

And of course, Russia warned us about them Chechans about 10 times.

Obama blew Russia off....and people died!!!

And Obama wonders why Russia is giving Snowden asylum. And apparently, Obama doesn't even know how asylum works.

Wonder if THIS guy’s been found yet, or, is he going to be part of the terrorist’s party we’re being warned about? (Missing in the US since May 9—no one has found him yet, to my knowledge.)

Never let a crisis go to waste. But sometimes you might postpone it until you really need it. Such as when scandals start getting really bad.

Good grief! Does this mean the administration is just now responding to the warnings about Bengazi?

If so, expect this administration to issue orders to scramble the pursuit planes at Pearl and Clark, disperse the heavies and require all ships in harbor to fire boilers in prep to sortie ... :))

This is nothing but a wag the dog diversion. Benghazi is heating up too much.

Dupe the dullards, drones and proletariat... and the rest of the population if possible.

Obama is convincing the sheep that he needs access to their bedrooms, bathrooms, cars, laptops, phones and sweet nothings whispered between you and your “OTHER”.
