22 American Embassies Closed in Response to Heightened Al Qaeda Threat

Unfortunately for Ambassador Stephens, Tyrone Woods, Glen Doherty, and Sean Smith, this comes too late.

From Fox News.

Top U.S. officials met Saturday to review the Al Qaeda threat that prompted the State Department to issue a worldwide travel alert and close down 22 embassies and consulates for the weekend, a threat that has been described by Rep. Peter King as “very specific.”

……The travel alert was the first of its kind since an announcement preceding the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. It came as Washington prepared to close its embassies and consulates throughout the Muslim world this Sunday over security concerns.U.S. officials have not offered many details on the nature of the threat, but apparently are taking it seriously.

On Friday, the threat was described by Rep. Peter King, chairman of the Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence, as “very specific.”

“We’re not certain exactly where something might happen but it’s very specific as to when and it’s also very specific as to the fact that it is going to happen, so we have to be on alert everywhere,” the New York Republican told WINS-AM.

Since Obama royally fucked up in Benghazi, Al Qaeda figures it has a green light to attack more American embassies.

At least this time, the SCOAMF isn’t blaming it on a video.
