Geez, didn’t Obama tell us that he’d neutralized Al Qaida?
About this time last year Obama was strutting around the country boasting that Al Qaida was on the run, had been decimated and essentially defeated, “al Qaeda is on its heels” and the war on terror was ovah. He said al Qaeda’s “remaining operatives spend more time thinking about their own safety than plotting against us. They did not direct the attacks in Benghazi or Boston. They have not carried out a successful attack on our homeland since 9/11.”
“The president has indicated and will indicate again that he rejects the notion of global war on terrorism, which is an amorphous definition that applies to a tactic,” one official said.
Now, there is a pretty global shutting down of American embassies and Americans are being told not to travel to large swaths of the world because of that non-global threat from a supposedly decimated and on its heels terror organization. This is an unprecedented closing of embassies and the travel alert issued is at the highest level since 9/11.
