Now Team BO is even prepared to responds for additional security. Is he worried about something will happen this Sept 11 2014? What say ye?
The Obama administration is directing all U.S. diplomatic posts overseas to review security and the State Department says it will give additional help to embassies and consulates in need. The department's disclosure of the move to tighten security was made in a recent letter to Sen. Jim Risch of Idaho. The department indicated in the letter that each American diplomatic post was reviewing security to protect American personnel, facilities and interests, including those of private citizens and businesses.
"Based on these ongoing discussions with our posts overseas, we are prepared to respond to requests for additional security support," Chad Kreikemeier, the State Department's legislative point-man, said in an Aug. 29 letter to Risch. A copy was obtained by the Associated Press. In their July 30 letter to Secretary of State John Kerry, the GOP lawmakers raised the question of even suspending embassy operations or closing diplomatic posts in particularly sensitive places. "The men and women who work at these installations are patriots, often doing so at great personal risk in some extremely dangerous and harsh circumstances," they wrote. "Their security should be our utmost priority.".....snip~
