Skip to comments.Terror Threat Intelligence Not New, Agencies knew of threat to embassies, officials for months
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 administrations 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.

“Helmy el-Gazzar, secretary general Muslim Brotherhood-aligned Freedom and Justice Partys office in Giza...”
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”.
