Holder Voices ‘Extreme Concern’ About Terrorist Bomb Makers
NY Times ^ | July 13, 2014 | BRIAN KNOWLTON

Posted on 07/13/2014 7:30:08 PM PDT by Innovative

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. expressed “extreme, extreme concern” on Sunday over reports that bomb makers from Yemen responsible for the 2009 underwear-bomb plot are now in Syria cooperating with foreign militants there, possibly to develop new, nearly undetectable explosive devices.

Asked on Sunday whether that threat was a “clear and present danger,” Mr. Holder responded: “I think it is. In some ways, it’s more frightening than anything I think I’ve seen as attorney general.”

That's why Bush and Rumsfeld said that we need to get the terrorists "over there" not wait until they come here.

Of course Obama totally dismantled the War on Terror, even it's name has been abolished..

Now they may be reaping the consequences.

Whatever.

Get back to what really matters in this country - making sure no more outhouses are called Obama’s Library.

No, Holder has said he stays up nights worried about all the “home-grown extremists” here in the US.

Yes I agree. The threat is real and we need to stay on the offensive against these real threats. Unfortunately Obama is not up to the job.

Al-Qaeda leader Mokhtar Belmokhtar sparks new jihadi terror threat

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/al-qaeda/10964077/Al-Qaeda-leader-Mokhtar-Belmokhtar-sparks-new-jihadi-terror-threat.html

The al-Qaeda terrorist behind the massacre of six British gas workers is recruiting foreign Jihadi fighters returning from Syria to launch attacks on Western targets, defence and security sources have claimed.

Mokhtar Belmokhtar, the terrorist who masterminded the Algerian gas plant terror attack where 40 hostages, six of them British, were killed last year, has fled to Libya after surviving a counter-terrorist operation in which he was reported to have died.

Now it has emerged that he is recruiting foreign fighters from Syria, raising fears of new terror plots against Britain and France.

ISIS Terror Threat to US Targets ‘High,’ Say Officials

http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/iraq-turmoil/isis-terror-threat-us-targets-high-say-officials-n144541

ISIS, the Islamist terror group that now controls much of Syria and Iraq, poses an “extremely high” terror threat to U.S. targets, and has the bomb-making skills and foreign fighters needed to strike U.S. and other Western interests, according to multiple U.S. intelligence officials.

What a ridiculous statement:

They won’t attack Holder, professional courtesy. Thanks Innovative.

Justice Dept finally finds ‘real’ scandal; looking at Obama outhouse parade float

http://www.bizpacreview.com/2014/07/12/justice-dept-finally-finds-real-scandal-looking-at-obama-outhouse-parade-float-131157

Since investigating multiple “fake” scandals like the White House Benghazi cover-up and IRS targeting of conservatives seem so petty, Holder’s crew have been itching for something worthy to investigate.

A controversial float in the Norfolk Independence Day parade is just the ground-breaking case they were hoping for.

ISIS gets its hands on nuclear material

http://www.worldmag.com/2014/07/midday_roundup_isis_gets_its_hands_on_nuclear_material

Loose nukes. The ISIS terror group in Iraq has seized about 88 pounds of uranium kept at Mosul University, Reuters reports. The uranium is not weapons-grade, but it poses a large enough threat that Iraq is asking for international assistance to respond. “These nuclear materials, despite the limited amounts mentioned, can enable terrorist groups, with the availability of the required expertise, to use it separate or in combination with other materials in its terrorist acts,” wrote Mohamed Ali Alhakim, the Iraqi ambassador to the United Nations, in a letter to Secretary General Ban Ki-moon obtained by Reuters. ISIS has taken over a large chunk of territory and effectively erased the border between Iraq and Syria.

Absolutely nothing keeps these liberals up at night. They feather their own nests and care less all the disasters they cause. Holder and Obama want more power and money and that’s their priority. Domestic terrorism? They tell him to say that.

That's why the Obama Administration is arming, training and funding terrorists without the approval of the American people or Congress.

The so-called individual terrorists are nothing but just one more of Holder's many lies.

Holder has been a disaster. In any sane and just country he would be arrested and imprisoned.

When they become experts at making bombs, Holder will welcome them as they walk across the Mexican border, and make sure they are well placed in American society, where they can do the most damage. What a$$ holes these liberals are.

Sure Eric, whatever you say.

To the extent he is ‘concerned’, the remedy will end up being Martial Law and the further dismantleing of our Constitution, that is, unless We the People stop it.

“To the extent he is ‘concerned’, the remedy will end up being Martial Law and the further dismantleing of our Constitution, that is, unless We the People stop it.”

This is exactly the plan.

Just saw an article where Holder is calling the US a nation of cowards.

Eric Holder Stands By Controversial ‘Nation Of Cowards’ Speech

http://news.yahoo.com/eric-holder-stands-controversial-nation-cowards-speech-165007249.html

And of course he is engaging in trying to inflame racial tensions.
