    Should the US Raise Security Threat to the Nation at its Highest Level for Sept 2014?

    Well.....Sept has arrived. We are down to 10 more days until the Anniversary of 911. We have asked others to up their security and watch for those who have Passports with their Airports. We have had to evacuate our Embassies in Iraq and Libya. We have AQAP threatening and taunting us in their New Magazine. Then we have ISIL who has threatened to come after us if we didn't stop the airstrikes on them. We continued and now they are vocal and probing us.

    Last year BO did not set the Nation at the highest level. He didn't do so in 2012 and We lost an Ambassador in Libya. With the way things have been with our relations overseas. Should we take any chances this year? What say ye?

    If there is no credible threat, there is no need. The world is not more screwed up than usual.

    I'm pretty sure most such steps are mere security theater anyway.

    I'll be flying on 9-11, but admit I'm a little apprehensive. Not about my flight, but about our country experiencing some sort of attack on that day. Let's just hope the terrorists remain as ineffective as our president. Neither of them seem to be able to find their own butts with both hands.

    I wouldn't mind a higher state of security this year. Then again, that might result in a full body pat down by a butch TSA agent. I could do without that.

    That's what was said in 2012 and we lost a US Ambassador.....Its a simple matter and on that Day. All our Diplomats will stay on lockdown in hot areas if the level is raised to its highest.

    If this is a poll, MMC, I can't see it (on my phone). I'll vote when I get on the PC... later.

    Yeah it is.....but I guess we wont be raising the Threat level. Which the Z Man......will be releasing his usual video with AQ's message for this year. Last couple years it has come out 3 days prior to the day.


    U.S. does not plan to raise threat level

    The United States does not expect to follow the United Kingdom in raising its terror alert level because of concerns over Islamic militants. “As it relates to the United States’ national terror alert system, I don’t anticipate at this point that there’s a plan to change that level,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters at his daily briefing Friday.

    Johnson said that his department “is mindful of the potential for homegrown violent extremism inspired by radical ideology overseas, and, both through law enforcement and community outreach, we are taking steps to counter that potential threat.” .....snip~

    As long as golf courses aren't being threatened, this president isn't engaged.

    Unfortunately we have no leader.

    Re: Should the US Raise Security Threat to the Nation at its Highest Level for Sept 2

    Here are 2 law makers from both sides of the Aisle saying something about ISIL.....and their threats.


    Lawmakers: Islamic State group wants to hit US.....

    Cities in the United States and Western Europe are being eyed as Islamic State militants' future targets and President Barack Obama needs to take action, two U.S. lawmakers are warning. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House intelligence committees on Sunday prodded the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on U.S. soil. The bipartisan pair of lawmakers shared a dire warning against the Islamic State group, which now has control of vast swaths of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley

    "This is a group of people who are extraordinarily dangerous," said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the California Democrat who leads the Senate intelligence panel. "And they'll kill with abandon." The pair of lawmakers, who have access to some of the nation's most sensitive secrets and receive regular detailed briefings from the nation's spy agencies, offered dire predictions of an attack on the United States or its European allies if the militants are not confronted. "They have announced that they don't intend to stop," Feinstein said. "They have announced that they will come after us if they can, that they will, quote, 'spill our blood.'".....snip~
