A Country In Disarray, Or Prudent Action?

Global travel alerts were issued today for American’s by the State Department, warning that al Qaeda could launch attacks in the Middle East and North Africa. The State Dept. also announced, 21 embassies and consulates would be temporarily be closed due to the expectation of al Qaeda attacks. Did President Obama overreact to intelligence reports that show a potential for attacks in Yemen and other hotspots in Northern Africa and the Middle East? A Senior National security official in Yemen said that the threat appeared to be much worse than it has been in a long time, but is this overreaction on President,s part, a show of weakness. US officials were particularly concerned about the security of the US Embassy in Yemen between the days between Saturday and Tuesday. The 17 Embassies are in Afghanistan, Algeria, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Djibouti, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Libya, Mauritania, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, The United Emirates, Sudans and Yemen. Consulates in Iraq, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are also being shut down. Time will tell whether or not this is an overreaction on the part of the Obama Administration or this was the prudent reaction that might save American lives. What do you think?

  1. I wonder, is this just a “dry run,” for the president or will some kind of attack actually take place against American interests in the Middle East or North Africa.
    My guess is, Obama and his gestapo have America in training for his own purposes and congress seems to be falling for it.

  2. I think people who worry about “shows of weakness” betray their own feelings of weakness and inadequacy.

  3. Nobody
    You have a weird take on International Relations but what the heck, your opinion is as good as most.

  4. I see no reason to do this.

    Obama told us that Al Qaeda was on the run and that Detroit was still alive. Not to mention that we reset our relations with Russia. I mean if some idiot stole our secrets and fled to Russia, they would send him back to us straight away. We really don’t need to close embassies in Muslim countries. Those guys all love us after Obama’s Cairo speech.

    We don’t need to worry about Iran. The mullahs there endorsed Obama for reelection.

    We should be worried about Great Britain, Poland, and the Czech Republic.

    They thought that the U.S. was an ally until Obama beyotch slapped them and he showed them who was boss.

  5. “I think people who worry about “shows of weakness” betray their own feelings of weakness and inadequacy.”

    Nobody, I bet you loved Neville Chamberlin. That idiot Churchill advised against a show of weakness against Hitler. But Chamberlin showed his feelings of strength and adequacy by giving away Austria and Chechoslovakia.

  6. There was never anyone named Neville Chamberlin. The correct spelling is Chamberlain.

    And now you can point me to the person in today’s world you equate with Hitler. C’mon, you can do it — find me someone who has annexed a neighboring country into his own and has simultaneously built up the largest fighting force in the world. You were so quick to turn to Hitler as an analogy that I’m sure this won’t be much trouble.

  7. I believe that Tuesday will come and go with nothing of importance coming from al Qaeda. This is just a training session from the Obama Administration. I find it difficult to believe anything coming from the Administration’s mouthpiece.

  8. Well, it’s Monday morning and not a single terrorist act of any significance has yet to take place in the wake of Obama and the Media’s paranoia. (yes the media got sucked in) Yes, I would rather be safe than sorry but the overreaction is a “Johnny come lately,” knee jerk reaction to the Obama Administration’s lack of defense in the Benghazi slaughter situation.
    Too late to save face on that one Obumer. Now you’ll have to face the humiliation of being a serious fore-teller (fortune teller) of doom for your own gain.
    The President is paranoid and wants us to drink his Kool-aide. I hope that we as Americans aren’t stupid enough to see through his attempt to recoup after the Benghazi incident.

  9. Well, it’s Tuesday morning and not a single terrorist act of any significance has yet to take place in the wake of Obama and the Media’s paranoia. (yes the media got sucked in too}.
    Has the Obama Administration recouped all of the bad publicity from the Benghazi slaughter yet. When will it be enough. Is this a situation of; everybody knows they’ve got weapons of mass destruction?
    Obama, you are soooo transparent and the American people and media have fallen for it.

  10. Not only that, but several foreign governments have fallen for it, too. I’m sure Don Ayotte knows more than whole teams of military men, diplomats and terrorism experts. Why they don’t listen to Mr. Ayotte instead of these obvious fools and traitors is a mystery.

    ” I’m sure Don Ayotte knows more than whole teams of military men, diplomats and terrorism experts.”

    I certainly don’t know more than everybody in the world but I do know that none of expected violence and terrorism has taken place. The diplomats and terrorism experts can say what they want to get the expected result and fear from the populace but what are the facts over the weekend.
    The facts are, the world is in dire fear but nothing has happened. It is an Obama scam to put the Benghazi slaughter on the back burner, and elevate his status as a leader.
    Fat chance, Obama is a cheap con-man in an expensive suit that has no worldwide respect at all.

    Asgain, I’m talking to Nobody!!!!!
