-- -- embassies across the globe are close this weekend due to terror chatter will not really across the globe in certain parts of the globe.
Let me put it this way if you -- in any place where Christians are welcome -- okay.
So other clothes for fear of attack which makes you wonder what movie is responsible for this shark -- -- Some -- to the upcoming musical version of magic Mike.
But the -- -- just raise questions they also raise the dead.
I -- al-Qaeda was deceased now I realize they're the Paul McCartney of terror groups their death was a hoax.
So of al-Qaeda is no longer a serious threat than what constitutes a serious one this.
About Qaeda was no longer a threat than Anthony Weiner was no longer -- -- Look I'm not making light of this I never thought al-Qaeda was dead and I wish Valerie Jarrett I mean President Obama had been right the first time.
But the threat is alive and well which sensible people knew all along the scary part.
Aren't really the threats but that officials say our response to the threats is a lesson learned from been -- The lesson is close up shop because we can't protect you.
That's no -- -- eighty bolster security or you get the hell out of those hell holes but you don't close up shop.
Because sooner or later this sign in that door we'll go from close to open an evil will return and it won't be there asking for directions.
So Kimberly if you looked like Bowling Green you're gonna be close to next Saturday at some point they have to reopen then what do you do.
Well then people feel really insecure about an ability for the United States to protect and since we do as you stay close up shop but I closed for business -- we decide we can figure something out.
Or the chatter -- well that's when you're going to be at your most vulnerable as soon as -- open back up again.
That's when you're gonna get hit.
There's been little -- activity in terms as predator strikes at such -- but no.
Major cattle -- casualties from that of any of the known.
Leaders hopefully from all of this chatter.
But to be quite extensively develops -- at a target -- getting more information and some people need to be taken out probably immediately.
-- what do you.
Job make it that the Intel community speaks -- they disclosed too much information -- Do you think that's true.
I do I think when you announce that the intelligence came from Yemen and that it was specifically targeted for a specific period of time.
And this goes that's a lot of the other things the administration is -- remember that the stud next virus with the Israeli attack on the -- -- -- nuclear program and in what they had a -- a -- also about the bin Laden raid.
I don't know why the administration is is seeing all these specific things is now all that.
Resource is that we have an all the people that we've gathering intelligence from -- these dangerous countries.
Why would they ever cooperate with us anymore and other written well -- makes -- good point pots should President Obama be impeached.
Well hot you don't need to actually drafting articles I -- -- we.
First of all let me -- make a few comments SA picked up some chatter -- it's about time menacing effect that is -- supposed to be and secondly.
Al-Qaeda has made a point four years now not to use cellphones and other communications node animated point before -- show that maybe they're desperate now.
My guess is as some of this may have been just to throw us off.
The third thing is if we hadn't closes embassies and something happened -- you all would have been all over us as battles that and the last and -- -- -- -- Embassies have been closed for the last 75 years right adverse circumstances have abdicated this is this may be more than vote most.
Closures but he goes back to Teddy Roosevelt in the closed embassy so I would not consider this to be -- -- great American weakness.
Doc kept high and also the -- -- -- yemen's with a wants to drop the not this is -- -- agent in our Antara.
Our -- our researcher who is clearly guys upset the right ran.
-- -- and it like the Star Wars bar scene it's rather freaks and eighteen AP hang out all of that sport in they gave all you don't throw it.
Well let me guess he did it at critics at the -- -- say would say well this is really convenient.
For this to happen.
What while these programs are under fire and snow and -- embarrassing us that we can come -- look at all this that we've we've uncovered.
The problem and I'm uncomfortable talking about intelligence things because in a previous life I -- -- are not commenting on this and but now we have so much more information and in the public David Sanger of the New York Times wrote a piece I think -- -- yesterday in which -- talked about.
Others too much classified information the government I think he's probably right.
But something like this re talking specifically about sources and methods and how people are communicating with one another terrorists are communicating with one another.
To me that that the it it does -- over broad.
Right however that threat to the -- got into the into our Libyan embassy was very specific right member of investor Christie and sends -- letter specifically saying we happen.
A threat assessment on -- this embassy that was a specific things -- I'm fine if people learned lessons that's that's okay I'm I'm comfortable talking about.
Sources and methods I do think this is not a partisan issue.
Biggest enemy and an al-Qaeda knows that and so if we have to be vigilant -- and that I've been vigilance doesn't stop after a month interesting thing from a foreign policy aspect is.
Is President Obama responsible for al-Qaeda is marking an evolution yeah.
In -- know about that it's not -- I do know that anyone other reasons for the easy increased chatter here is a lot of these prisoners had this gates yet from where we've been holding them and we've been releasing a lot of -- icing on bright so a lot -- they had Abu Ghraib prison break the other day more -- needs it just release about a thousand.
Iraq and Afghanistan we have a program -- we pay militants to leave the battlefield they get to keep their guns they just have to sign on the dotted line and say.
-- -- -- It reintegrate into the community it's.
Did you do that for Chicago could think my heart you know I decided serving as I'd love to watch the Sunday shows -- just sit and record them.
Just for this show here's a montage of people talking about this terror threat.
Is this threat to blow up an embassy -- consulate or something else that part of his unspecified but the intent seems clear.
-- the intention is to what the intent is to attacked western not just US interest.
This is an effort to terrorize us to drive us out of the mideast and if we ever take the -- And try to come home and create fortress America you'll have another nine elevenths is try one -- specific.
And credible threats I've seen perhaps since 9/11.
This is your wake up call al-Qaeda is in many ways strong that it was before 9/11.
Hope -- -- In America that takes time horse but they did to trees is it to al-Qaeda that.
Orchestrated 9/11 has been decimated.
It has now been its name it's -- inherited by a number different.
Terrorist groups and so in effect it is alive and welcome to call but it's not the same al-Qaeda and by the way.
Releasing prisoners from Guantanamo -- -- places.
When -- went back from the Bush Administration into the Obama administration.
We've done it for perfectly legitimate reasons.
There was overcrowding down -- they need to get to out some of the get back -- Much of the game but some of the most of what not.
Well I think you guys -- -- 30% was recidivism that was -- sent -- a lot and I'm so what's the problem with overcrowding.
I -- -- if you're living with the family -- -- prisoners rapid overcrowded it's not like it's -- -- yeah it's like soccer.
The but suck a feel good about that and read at best -- expensive but it it's some of those -- by the way they have provided.
And continue to provide designers in the US intelligence overseas were there when -- KG you a problem.
Bob writes you buddy Bob knew it however I have to take issue with every timing when you say.
Al-Qaeda has been decimated they're not they shape shift and they just change their name and it's the same roster.
The current leadership of eighteen AP is all former ex gitmo detainees that are now smarter better -- have more cash in their pockets.
And are now fostering new attacks against -- strong.
-- connections is our hearing an -- in Pakistan DC is the new face of terror and they're bolder and stronger so to say we decimated is to put -- Operational disadvantage though that's not -- Accurately they -- -- just say that did George Bush kept a picture of all the people those cards right and he got rid of virtually the entire top leadership of al-Qaeda with the exception.
Of Osama -- who eventually was caught there's one -- Now we agreed to bring the -- yeah.
That's I don't see this as partisan but -- Not saying it I know about why we keep talking habit to president is in America.
And that -- -- if the complacency is our biggest enemy -- we should just all work together and say OK look do you trust a government or do you not -- skepticism.
Healthy in a democracy and every single bit of skepticism they got today and but for the administration that's.
It was the same -- the -- the Bush Administration yet I think that that's probably a good.
But what -- -- decimate mean you destroy everything but 110 of.
01% or 10% estimate I think maybe I'm not really shut up I have an issue what can you get back to me on that why -- -- to this tape of people talking about.
Al-Qaeda being decimated.
There should be no doubt.
Today America stronger.
Al-Qaeda does on the path to defeat free decimated Al qaeda's leadership al-Qaeda is on the path to the thing.
And bin Laden is -- we decimated al-Qaeda central.
We have a limited and Osama bin Laden al-Qaeda.
Is much weaker than it was what I came and off list Osama bin Laden is dead.
In General Motors is alive.
War in Afghanistan.
Is coming to a close.
Al-Qaeda is on the path to debate.
Osama bin Laden is bad for -- the core of al-Qaeda in Afghanistan.
And pockets -- is on the path to defeat.
The remaining -- spend more time thinking about their own safety and plotting against us -- Poppies and you have if I get pop -- -- -- if you'll notice he said that al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan are on the run and using that on right.
Do you think that that's really let Americans who heard that the message that they were trying to deliver from the White House to America during the -- twelve election -- the -- being specific.
And al-Qaeda in Pakistan.
That's not not what they meant at all and that's why there and I'd laugh I I support them but it's but when you start tumble out of watering down a global war on terror for political reasoning is that bush and what it says -- is an actor is.
Is al-Qaeda left in Afghanistan know this is Pakistan -- but all of that stuff.
Was the reason why they played down the gods before the election is all just got his date -- was a lie it was well and it's coming back.
So there's -- dozen -- more -- no and you get tentacles and that is have different names and different factions and they're still -- And they still operating and strong enough to the point we considered a credible threat that we are setting down embassies about a quick out of -- -- yet they shot it down with I don't know one's gonna come.
Help me if I'm stuck -- and getting attacked for seven hours even though you could get some help there to get me out.
Right and you can play word games it's decimated its not they tried to sell us you know that they were decimated.
Before the election they're obviously not -- they said the war on terror is over it's not obviously because we're closing a record amount of embassies.
I mean this is Susan Rice where -- -- -- out on the Sunday to win but are we blaming America though could -- I don't look at the last I -- that's his -- she was holding these meetings.
With I think it was John Kerry who is on his yacht.
The last time there in -- it is in Egypt and then James clapper the Director of National Intelligence.
Who you know lied to congress that last -- he wasn't even an event that weren't so over it's a huge trifecta I think -- the big speech -- gave three months ago.
When he said technically the war on terror is over it's ten greens -- yet.
Look it up.
Look it up that I didn't -- -- when we come back to -- here how pretty.
Dictating where it technically is at the wording about it if you if you read between the ones I know you -- Do about re -- I know okay did he did say that you know essentially the war on terror was over as we know and it's not.
What did what did it now is it what is the lesson -- -- to -- get basic sources say that officials have learned lessons from the Gaza.
-- -- -- -- -- -- order I don't know specifically what that lesson is I do from a macro political standpoint I think it is that.
It is key for the present in the United States to have to rally the nation when you are at war.
And war is tiring.
And America is tired of being and what that that when people think about that specific to.
Iraq and Afghanistan under I understand that -- -- -- but the president has to rally and remind people that the vigilance is in is so important.
On NSA program in particular if that communication between these two terrorists that led us to information is that a bit of practice is shut something down does that not mean at -- NSA program is worth something and could some.
I'm in the administration besides -- and general Alexander.
Have to go out and try to defend it aren't -- trying to spend defend the president's use of a program that's very important if you even help us defend and knowledge and technology -- -- How incredibly important it did its job -- intercepted overseas people who were -- -- United States that is entirely different.
Bob how do you now.
You know I remember how do you know that that communication between these two sons didn't come from the through the United States and that's the only way that you know.
Well get -- They can using a lot look terrorists in Boston Garnett to communicate to one another are back and forth well we don't know that NSA program is collecting.
Lots of different numbers but they just try to find out what he's going to sentence if -- we could -- Peter King yeah has toxic or Clinton gets briefed and I don't I don't I hate how do you have more information I'm -- Suggestion -- but he did he suggest is -- chatter with in the peninsula was not chatter between.
Oh that's recess and I know how do you know that he's wrong.
I'm not say he's -- he said it I've given that.
-- given that -- -- -- -- it seemed like you can't -- -- unless you have a haystack you need to have the grid in order to connect the dots and you have to employ a lot of people to constantly be looking for those needles and it's expensive but it's the most important thing we can do to protect ourselves.
Can answer question how -- you think we have to keep -- wants -- gone.
Well forever the thing it's not that war isn't as specifically it's his job we're hearing it is a mindset from the Muslim world a certain -- The Muslim -- -- -- who would have declared war against.
-- -- -- I want our lifetime I'd rather have a war on -- go forever than out on drugs I got -- doing the war on drugs forever and it's failed site -- get a -- -- guarantee -- -- -- -- -- and the minute you say it's -- isn't any -- by the -- this you know the attacks are scheduled for Sunday which is the was that the -- of power.
Where the first verses of the Koran were revealed to Mohammed.
Which some militants used to encourage to kill infidels just thought we should know that what would like on a set of smarts too lenient.
We're live stuff and of course that's -- And it was quite I got to be a lot of -- -- they'd like to party what are my talking about.
