Source: Terrorists Behind Embassy Threat In Place
CBS News ^ | August 3, 2013 | John Miller

Posted on 08/03/2013 5:48:56 PM PDT by Biggirl

The terror threat prompting the U.S. government to close nearly two dozen embassies and consulates Sunday is the most specific, credible threat information in years, CBS News senior correspondent John Miller reports.

Intelligence officers have reporting from a reliable source that a major plot is under way and that the team to carry it out has been selected and is in place, Miller reports.

Anything to distract attention away from the phony scandals or the President's vacation. If this were legit, then the President wouldn't be partying at Camp David right now. That is if we had a legit President.

John Miller met and interviewed Bin Laden. He might be worth considering, even if he’s on a shonky network.

Personally I hope we capture every one of them
and water board them till they have nothing left
then dump parts of their carcasses at CAIR headquarters.

But, that’s only me.

...the team to carry it out has been selected and is in place, Miller reports.

Hmmm...

"The team has been selected and in place".

Why not just say that "the team is in place"?

Obviously if a team is in place, it goes without saying that the team has been "selected".

This report sounds made up.

I wonder if obama has hired some people to make some token attempts so our guys can blow them into the arms of their 72 virgins and obama can look like our toughest president on terror.

Promise each of their families a bunch of loot it they do a suicide run. On obie's birthday. Then he can do his usual "it's all about me" style speach.

I suspect there is a lot of strategizing going on. If a terrorist attack occurs, he has to do something dramatic - earthshakingly dramatic to pull out of the Benghazi pit he has dug so deep.

I could be wrong - and I hope I’m not - but I think this is all for show.

Ramadamadingdong, which ends next week, is always a dangerous time because Muslims love to celebrate their “holy days” with killing, and the “holier” the day, the more killings there will be. So I don’t think it took a genius to figure out that forecasting danger, with or without the supposed intercepts of AQ “chatter,” would not be out of line.

Polling must be bad on Benghazi and Obama’s other screw-ups, so he’s probably hoping this will get him security brownie points. Either that or scare us. But I’m not sure either one of those plans will work.

Now if the US government had done something to stop those jailbreaks that freed over 2,000 AQ terrorists in the last week alone, or something to strengthen the anti-Islamic forces, or even something to crush jihadis in our own country and let them know terrorism is not okay - something like taking Hassan out and shooting him - I might be more impressed. But this impresseth me not.

As I say, I hope I’m right. But if I’m not, and there really is an attack, it’s because Obama has done nothing but coddle these Islamic radicals for the last 5 years.

Mister T and you both have it right.

When a plethora of words...most of which add nothing to a scrap of perhaps useful information there’s alway’s a good reason to question the veracity of the the “statement” they’re padding.

With the DRONES we have IN PLACE....in such locales closing the Embassies makes us look like sitting duck SISSIES.

Has our once proud department of DEFENSE finally been morphed into The Department of "Peace"?

This has to be a mis-print. I thought that we have defeated Al Qaeda? Yep. according to all these Washingtom PEA HENS, since the killing of OBL, these Al Qaeda monsters have been beaten to the ground. Now, what are we hearing from these same people? WARNING, Al QAEDA IS ON THE PROWL, AND ALL AMERICANS OVERSEAS MUST BE VERY CAREFUL. Is there anyone tired of this LIAR IN CHIEF besides me?

Shaykh Tufayli, still a revered cleric, was a participant in the August 1982 First Conference for the Downtrodden which, I argues in a forthcoming volume, was the essential organizing event at which Hezbollahcan be said to have come into existence.

so there is a BIG Hezbollah Connection to the Month of August!

These "threats" will run until when? All the way till he leaves office or until when? Or is this some setup for something else manufactured can be devised? Has Obama made a cabinet level office to handle all the manufactured problems?

That department definitely has the inside track on what is coming next.

Victory party AUGUST,,,,2007

Hezb.ollah has been holding victory celebrations to coincide with the end of the conflict in August 2006, which Hezbollah considers a major victory. It's a war Hezbollah says is not over.<
br> In a speech earlier this week, Hezbollah leader Sayid Hassan Nasrallah declared there is "no ceasefire" with Israel, but only a "halt of offensive operations."

So just what does it mean to “close an embassy”? Does EVERYONE leave? Or does that just mean closed for business? Are guards left behind to secure it, or is it totally abandoned, and we just have to come back at some later time to see if it is still there? If it is abandoned, how are sensitive documents inside secured?

EXCELLENT Questions Grasshopper!

they simply lock the front doors and place a closed sign in the window?

“we just have to come back at some later time to see if it is still there? “

It does seem to be the plan. from what weve been told, and don’t we more or less OWN IT..and therefore have STANDING to ask such questions?

where’s our Commander In Chief? has he said ANYTHING about this YET??

Yes it seems like even in places where the bad guys had no bad designs before they heard we were going to abandon the place for a day, what an opportunity for them to toilet paper the place, or spray paint graffiti on the walls, or burn it to the ground. Also, I wonder where all the important people inside go to be safe when they close it down.
