Graham praises Obama administration; trip to Egypt still on

“I appreciate what the administration is doing. They're taking the right approach to this,” Graham said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

That's what he's up to.

GOOD.

Don't reopen any of them.

We don't need them there in the first place let alone building the largest, most expensive in the world in Iraq.

If you're in that part of the world, you need an arsenal not an embassy.

He's taking the republican security council advice on these matters and taking Romney's advice on Detroit....

That's what he's up to....since his own previous decisions were fk ups.

So surprised that Barack Hussein Obama has not been able to make nice with people who dislike America as much as he does.

Would that be the same Obama who had no problem having Morsi elected in the first place? You are as clueless as he is.

Graham praised Obama. Not the republican security council or rugby. Are you girls still stewing because you're no longer the party associated with a strong defense? Sword-swallowing baggerism will do that.

The timing of this "threat" seems off to me.

What happened Friday? Prior to the release of this "threat" by official assholes in Washington?

Jake Tapper at CNN had a report regarding Benghazi. That report stated there was 35-40 CIA operatives on the ground in Benghazi. Also near the end of this report, he mentions the possibility of gun running from Libya into Syria to arm the FSA and Al-Nusra (he doesn't call them out specifically, but, that is who is getting the weapons). Also, there is a mention of the CIA now performing polygraphs on operatives once a month to ensure they are not talking to the press.
http://thelead.blogs.cnn.com/2013/08/01/exclu...

Now when you do a little digging regarding the gun running, that will lead you to an article in the Canadian Free Press from a couple of months ago where a CIA operative explains the entire thing. And it all revolves around gun running from Libya to Syria through what is being called the Ho Chi Min Trail of Libya.

As this information begins to break and becomes more public knowledge, all of a sudden there is this massive terror "threat" with 24 hours. Really?

But, the focus on the topic is the "threat" and not further investigation on gun running from Libya into Syria.

But there is another thing that stands out to me. Almost a complete F up in reaction by the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Senator Chambliss on Meet the Press stated, "very reminiscent of what we saw pre-9/11."

This statement stands out. So what you are saying Senator is that the federal government knew of an event prior to 9-11 and failed to act? Thus allowing it to happen?
