Decimated Al-Qaeda? Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss … “the Threats are Very Reminiscent of What We saw Pre-9/11.” … “the Most Serious … I’ve Seen in a Number of Years.”
My what a difference an Obama presidential reelection year makes … Wasn’t Al-Qaeda decimated? … At least this time Obama did not blame Embassy closings on a video tape.
As reported by FOX News, Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-GA), the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said on the Sunday talk show ‘Meet the Press’ that that the threats are “very reminiscent of what we saw pre-9/11″ and the threats as “the most serious … I’ve seen in a number of years.”
The US State Department has now extended the closings of Embassies across the Middle East and North Africa, , as the terror threat across the region remained high through the final days of Ramadan. So how is it that a decimated Al-Qaeda caused the United States to shut down embassies and go on high alert?
Capitol Hill lawmakers, including top-ranking members of intelligence committees, on Sunday described the terror threat that closed 22 U.S. embassies and consulates across the Muslim region as the most serious one since before the 9/11 attacks and related to specific act or plot.
If I had plans to travel to certain places in the Middle East, I would probably go ahead and cancel them,” he said.
Rooney’s comments followed Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss, the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, telling NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the threats are “very reminiscent of what we saw pre-9/11.”
He also described the threats as “the most serious … I’ve seen in a number of years.”
But wait … Didn’t the Obamamessiah tell us during the 2012 Presidential campaign at stump speech after stump speech that Al-Qaeda was decimated and on the run? Barack Obama tried to portray us as some savior of America and that he had defeated Al-Qaeda. But of course with the Lying King, it was all rhetoric and misrepresentations as to what was really going on in the Middle East and terrorism. Obama told us that Al-Qaeda was on the path to death and yet then Benghazi happened. Obama boasted that Al-Qaeda was on the path to defeat and on the run, yet by the looks of the two dozen US Embassies and Consulates closed, nothing could be further from the truth. Barack Obama, the “Campaigner” in Chief would do and say anything to get reelected no matter what. He knows nothing about leadership, it was about being reelected.
Can we just come out and say the obvious … HE LIED!!!

ARE YOU KIDDING!!! US Closes 21 Embassies Due to Al-Qaeda Threat … Obama Officials Meet on Al-Qaeda Threat and Barack Obama Goes Golfing
The don’t call him the “Golfer” in Chief for nothing … Barack Obama is a complete joke as President … When the going gets tough, Obama goes golfing.
So lets understand this, 21 US Embassies have been closed due to what ABC News reporting that Senior U.S. Official intercepted Al Qaeda communications indicate a planned attack ‘Big,’ ‘Strategically Significant’ … and our fearless leader goes golfing. UNBELIEVABLE. How is it that high level meetings can be taking place with such an unprecedented security threats that so many Embassies and Consulates are closed in the Middle East and North Africa and Obama’s sees fit to go golfing yet again? What is actually more important to this guy, he celebrate his birthday, or US security and the war on terror?
Seriously folks, how does Obama go golfing when there was supposed terrorist chatter that has not been seen since 9-11? What is wrong with this man that he cannot comprehend that the perception that he take terrorism seriously matters? There is something seriously psychologically wrong with Obama that he cannot stop golfing in the face of what is reported as the greatest terror threat since 9/11.
On the day that almost two dozen U.S. embassies and consulates across North Africa and the Middle East are closed following the identification of a significant threat from an al-Qaeda affiliate, a senior U.S. official is providing new details about the communications intercepted from the terrorists, telling ABC News that al-Qaeda operatives could be heard talking about an upcoming attack. The official described the terrorists as saying the planned attack is “going to be big” and “strategically significant.”
“The part that is alarming is the confidence they showed while communicating and the air of certainty,” the official said, adding that the group — Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula — appeared to have a media plan for after the attack.
Authorities do not know the exact target of the planned attack, according to the official.
“We do not know whether they mean an embassy, an airbase, an aircraft, trains,” the official said.
Today on “This Week,” Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-MD — the ranking member of the House Intelligence Committee — said the intercepted communications called for a “major attack.”
“We received information that high level people from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula are talking about a major attack,” Ruppersberger said. “And these are people at a high level.”
“It’s a very credible threat and it’s based on intelligence,” Ruppersberger continued. “What we have to do now is the most important issue, is protect Americans throughout the world.”
Just what we needed for the rest of the summer as individuals try and take vacations the rest of the Summer or have to commute to work. Gas prices are expected to rise due to the unrest in the Middle East in Egypt and a drop in oil supplies.
Gas prices are heading up again.
Rising crude oil prices and a fall in U.S. supplies are driving wholesale gas prices up sharply. That has yet to be fully reflected at the retail level.
Prices at the pump — up 4 cents the past week to a national average of $3.52 a gallon — could climb another 15 cents or higher over the next two weeks. A year ago, the national average was $3.38.
“It’s getting ugly,” says Patrick DeHaan, senior analyst for GasBuddy.com. “First and foremost, the political problems in Egypt are driving crude oil prices, but there has also been a sharp drop in oil supplies the past two weeks. This is coming at a time when demand is at its annual July peak.”
Reuters’ David Rohde on Obama Administration : “Terrible Optics” of President Barack Obama Golfing and Sec. of State John Kerry Yachting after Egypt Over-Throws Morsi
So somebody in the MSM finally decided to say it … What the hell is Obama thinking?
David Rohde of Reuters criticized the Obama Administration on CBS’ Face the Nation this weekend. Rohde stated that the optics were terrible following what was supposed to be a strong statement by Barack Obama regarding the situation in Egypt. So some one in the media is finally questions Obama’s optics … “Terrible Optics” of Obama Golfing and Kerry Yachting as Egypt burns.
” … you have a bit now in Egypt where the president has a tough statement and then I don’t know how this happened, but it was terrible optics. The next day the President goes golfing, Secretary Kerry’s out on his yacht. What does that say to young people in Egypt, across the Middle East–whether they’re part of the debate–about America’s interest in the region?
Just curious, where has Reuters’ David Rohde been for the past 4+ years with regards to the “terrible optics” of Obama golfing or vacationing as record number of Americans are on food stamps, continued 7.6%+ unemployment, Americans are forced into part-time work rather than full time due to Obamacare and Americans losing their homes? How come no one has questioned those optics? Face it … Egypt and the Middle East is just learning what America has had to deal with, this president is apathetic and just does not care. Barack Obama has gone golfing 130 times since in office. Where was the MSM questioning those rounds of golf? Did theu just happen to missing those optics?
Secretary of State John Kerry Reporting for Duty, Or Not … Kerry Vacationing on Nantucket as Egypt in Turmoil … Kerry was not on the boat,before he was on it.
Secretary of State
Thurston Howard III John Kerry “Reporting for Duty” as he vacations on Nantucket as Egypt is in turmoil. What, do you think that some one in the Obama Administration would give up their vacation and actually do their job? The administration claims Kerry is engaged as Egypt was in chaos. Hmm, engaged, was he engaged while he was sailing? But why would we think that Kerry puts vacationing ahead of his job when we have been witness to Barack Obama, the Vacationer in Chief for 4+ years. Hell, we still do not even know where Obama was the night that the Benghazi consulate was attacked by terrorist and four Americans were killed.
Secretary of State John Kerry is spending a sun-splashed Fourth of July on Nantucket, even as a chaotic overthrow of the government rocks Egypt and continues to test diplomatic relations in Washington.
Kerry, who has a house and a yacht on the ritzy island getaway, was seen strolling down Federal Street away from July Fourth festivities on Main Street, a source told the Herald.
Kerry, who has just completed a 12-day, 2,500-mile trip to the Middle East and Asia, was with his daughters, their husbands and a security guard, the source said.
American Power adds, Look, it’s 4th of July. Why not just say Secretary Kerry is staying in contact with all the relevant personnel and be done with it? … But in line with this administration’s MO, it’s lying liars all the way.
Isn’t it funny how “flip-flopping” just follows this man … Kerry was not on the boat,before he was on it.
The State Department is denying a report that Secretary of State John Kerry spent the day on his yacht in Nantucket as Egypt’s military ousted President Mohammed Morsi.
CBS This Morning senior producer in Washington Mosheh Oinounou tweeted a photo of the “Isabel” and reported that a producer had spotted Kerry on board Wednesday.
UPDATE II: Oh wait, he was on the boat … John Kerry on his boat during Egypt upheaval, State Dept. concedes.
As regime change was unfolding in Egypt, Secretary of State John Kerry spent time on his boat Wednesday afternoon in Nantucket Sound, the State Department acknowledged to CBS News on Friday, after repeatedly denying that Kerry was aboard any boat.
We all know that whether Sec. of State John Kerry was reporting for duty or not, he could have done little to prevent the coup. The Egyptian military put forth the ultimatum to President Morsi. The Muslim Brotherhood and Morsi were a nightmare for Egypt and the coup was going to take place. But as Poweline comments, what is telling of the Obama administration feels the need to lie at all times.
