Report: Zawahiri-Led ´Conference
Call´ Led to Embassy Closings

Weekly Standard, by Michael Warren

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/9/2013 9:00:45 PM

Over at the Long War Journal, Thomas Joscelyn and Bill Roggio confirm the report that the closings of more than 20 U.S. embassies earlier this week was the result of intercepted communications between al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri and several al Qaeda operatives. The story was first reported by Eli Lake and Josh Rogin at the Daily Beast, while Joscelyn and Roggio confirm with their own sources: Several US officials contacted by The Long War Journal have confirmed that the Zawahiri-led communication first reported by the Daily Beast did in fact occur.

Comments:
And because of the leaks that they deemed politically useful by the traitorous regime, further information was forever lost. I´m almost to the point where I have run out of adjectives to describe my utter contempt for 0bama and his regime.

Leaking this information (no doubt by someone not a stone´s throw from Obama himself) is a national security disaster. It is likely to result in the death of lots of potential CIA informers close to al Zawahiri. It will be a massive disincentive for future informers. And it will shut down the communication link that the leak was based on. As the then national security advisor Gates famously said: the White House needs to shut the f... up.

i still have a hard time believing that Zawahiri et all were on the phone. that seems reckless to me - unbelievably stupid. and i don´t think Zawahiri is stupid - but i do believe our leadership can be. are they telling the truth to us on this?

Terrorist threats do not end within one week. They are ongoing. The re-opening of 18 of the
embassies proves that the Administration is full of hot air, ( to be kind ). What occurred to lessen the threat of one week ago?

The behavior is out of character. Therefore, like all those "sealed indictments" concerning Benghazi, the story is not true.

Please remember that the plan of taking down the World Trade Center took them eight and a half years to bring to fruition.

Closing embassies and consulates for a week just isn´t going to cut it.

If I were an employee at one of our embassies and Dear Leader said it´s safe to return, I´d seriously consider another line of work.
Al Qaeda is just itching to embarrass Obie with an embassy bombing now.

And did you hear the one about.....?
How people can still be so gullible amazes me. This entire fiasco was conjured up to counter CNN´s Jake Tapper Benghazi report. It obviously worked. His revelations are now out there in the ether never to be heard from again. Remember, these are the same people who cooked up the Mohammed video ruse and some rubes actually still believe it.

Since 2001 our enemies have known - far more poignantly than you - that to get on a phone is Death. That to text each other is Death. Email? Death. Passing information on the Internet? Death. Even ground mail would more than likely result in Death.

kinda´ like a conference call ~ in slow motion ~

The ongoing automated mail-cover operation that takes place in every major country on the planet for every piece of letter mail scarfed up the fact that the principals in AlQaida were using old fashioned letter mail to communicate with each other. Appropriate follow-ups were made and there you have it.

BTW, all this same sort of equipment is installed in major postal facilities throughout the Middle East ~ which makes it almost impossible for anyone in the spy/terrorist business to use the mails ~ but they didn´t now about that until this embassy closing activity.

Now they know.

It´s back to tattooing messages on the shaved heads of servants, or thinking of the Iranians, the shaved backs of mullahs!

In this modern age of instant electronic communication, unless you posses very sophistic cryptographic equipment(and expensive) just about any and all communications can be intercepted. Our own military spends millions of dollars every year to encrypt some of it´s most sensitive communications, including some of the presidents. One big problem for al Qaeda would be that the codes have to be changed frequently to prevent interception. And I´m not so sure that al Qaeda, given it´s necessity to move about frequently, would have the means or methods to have such a network.

Yes, Obie, or more likely his national security people, made up this vague terrorist threat to attempt to gain sympathy for his NSA snooping. He is not smart enough to formulate a workable tactic. The timing is just too good to coincide with his recent speeches justifying the interception of communications.

I happen to approve of NSA monitoring, both here and abroad, if a competent government is data mining for terrorist threats, but that´s not the case in the Obie regime.

Closing and re-opening 18 embassies just made them look like over-reactive fools to the entire world but they couldn´t afford to keep them closed on a falsehood. If there was a credible threat, it still exists.

I personally do not believe a word of the Administration´s threat warning. If it existed it would not not be over in just a week; it would be ongoing. Dems will do anything to create a diversion from the multiplicity of scandals affecting the Administration. The leader of the pack is a liar. ( in my opinion ). Did the so-called threat dissolve because the terrorists had
to go back to work after their week´s vacation ? Their job is to create havoc and violence against Western interests anywhere and everywhere and anytime they can. They don´t just pack up and go home because the U>S> closed their embassies for 6 days. Obama´s tact is to blame, scare, lecture,
divert,etc.

One of two things. If the administration had truly intercepted this highly prized information, why would they blow their "cover" an announce so publicly the closings of the embassies? Wouldn´t it have been better to close those embassies quietly so as not to tip their hand on exactly what we are capable of doing? Or, Zero Nero and his incompetents totally blew it, were set up by Zawahiri (or Yaba Daba Doo as Levin says) and the wizards of smart went for the baited hook, and now Yaba knows somewhat of our capability and how we might react.

You know it´s hard to tell just what is happening because when this administration is not lying it is screwing things up so badly.

Bob Beckel just went on a rant against CAIR, the Council on American Islamic Relations, on Fox’s The Five. Beckel accused CAIR of lacking “guts” in not standing up for Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s rights after Brandeis University shamefully rescinded an honorary degree that it had planned to give her. Brandeis made that decision under pressure from Muslim students, and ultimately CAIR itself, after those groups accused Ali of being anti-Muslim. Ali is anti-Muslim, but with good reason. She was mutilated as a young girl, and then forced into marrying a close relative by her family in Somalia. She escaped to

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.

A top building trades union is launching a midterm-election assault on House Democrats who oppose construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline. A letter distributed Friday by the Laborers´ International Union of North America (LIUNA) to the districts of 27 House Democrats calls for union members to make sure their representative "feels the power and the fury of LIUNA this November."

In what some have referred to as “fireworks” during a House hearing with Attorney General Eric H. Holder, one of the more important revelations was the exposure of exactly how much literal contempt Mr. Holder actually holds for the American people. In a bizarre scene, Mr. Holder, emboldened with a rather grandiose opinion of himself, became enraged when Rep. Louie Gohmert referenced Mr. Holder being sanctioned for contempt of Congress two years ago.

A "how-to" guide published by a prominent journalism school to help reporters covering Islam-related issues is under fire from critics who say it sacrifices the First Amendment to political correctness. "Islam for Journalists,” an online guide from Washington State University, says coverage of the Muslim world can be fair, yet inoffensive without compromising journalistic principles. Yet it pointedly condemns publication of images of Muhammed, an act which is forbidden by the Koran, and seems to equate it with violence carried out in the name of Islam. “Across the Muslim world extremists are wielding their swords with grisly effect, but the pen…can

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama paid $98,169 in taxes on $481,098 income last year, according to tax returns the White House released Friday. They paid an effective federal income tax rate of 20.4 percent. The couple´s 2013 federal income tax return was posted on the White House website four days before the tax filing deadline. The 42-page document shows the Obamas reported donating $59,251 to 32 charities. That works out to 12.3 percent of their adjusted gross income. Their largest charitable gift, $8,751, went to the Fisher House Foundation, which supports military families. The Obamas also released their

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.
