It goes on for many more pages because no govt. body can say things with a thrift of words. But what our embassy sends in their updates and newsletters, when they think about sending it, is still cause for concern. And still, the western deMOCKracies fall over backwards to insure that we maintain a standard of behavior the enemy does not recognize. Currently (and it’s been going on for awhile) there are many accusations and of course the threat of lawsuits, with regard to torture by the CIA under extraordinary rendition, and witnessed by Brit Intel or if not actually witnessed then with the knowledge of Brit Intel, blah,blah,blah. So the Brits get dragged into the mess with lawsuits planned against them for what the CIA did or did not do. Gets hairy. Don’t it?
And it’s all done under the banner of human rights. Which supposes that the enemy is indeed human. Which I question in the first place and don’t give a damn in the second.
Actually, we have to take this kind of thing seriously, especially in light of recent events here, and posted at bmews only in the last week or so.
Welcome to our brave new world, made entirely possible by the libtard left.
The Department of State has issued this Worldwide Caution
to update information on the continuing threat
of terrorist actions and violence against U.S. citizens
and interests throughout the world.
U.S. citizens are reminded to maintain a high level of vigilance and to
take appropriate steps to increase their security
awareness. This replaces the Worldwide Caution dated
July 18, 2012, to provide updated information on
security threats and terrorist activities worldwide.
The Department of State remains concerned about the
continued threat of terrorist attacks, demonstrations,
and other violent actions against U.S. citizens and
interests overseas. Current information suggests that
al-Qaida, its affiliated organizations, and other
terrorist organizations continue to plan terrorist
attacks against U.S. interests in multiple regions,
including Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
These attacks may employ a wide variety of tactics
including suicide operations, assassinations,
kidnappings, hijackings, and bombings.
Extremists may elect to use conventional or
non-conventional weapons, and target both official and
private interests. Examples of such targets include
high-profile sporting events, residential areas,
business offices, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of
worship, schools, public areas, and other tourist
destinations both in the United States and abroad where
U.S. citizens gather in large numbers, including during
U.S. citizens are reminded of the potential for
terrorists to attack public transportation systems and
other tourist infrastructure. Extremists have targeted
and attempted attacks on subway and rail systems,
aviation, and maritime services. In the past, these
types of attacks have occurred in cities such as Moscow,
London, Madrid, Glasgow, and New York City.
EUROPE: Current information suggests that al-Qaida,
its affiliated organizations, and other terrorist groups
continue to plan terrorist attacks against U.S. and
Western interests in Europe. Additionally, there is a
continuing threat in Europe from unaffiliated persons
planning attacks inspired by major terrorist
organizations but conducted on an individual basis. On
February 1, 2013, an individual detonated a bomb at a
side entrance to the U.S. Embassy in Ankara, killing one
Embassy guard and injuring others. The Revolutionary
People’s Liberation Party/Front (Devrimci Halk Kurtulus
Partisi/Cephesi or DHKP/C) claimed responsibility for
the attack on its website. The DHKP/C has stated its
intention to commit further attacks against the United
States, NATO, and Turkey. European governments have
taken action to guard against terrorist attacks, and
some have made official declarations regarding
heightened threat conditions. In the past several
years, attacks have been planned or carried out in
various European countries. On February 5, the
Bulgarian government announced its judgment that
Hizbollah was responsible for a July 2012 terrorist
attack in Burgas which resulted in the deaths of five
tourists and a bus driver.
Ireland is infested with Al-Qaeda terrorists.
An Algerian at the center of the so-called Jihad Jane conspiracy unexpectedly pleaded guilty during an Irish proceeding on Wednesday that may hasten his extradition to the United States on terrorism charges, a court official said.
Ali Damache, who has lived in Ireland for a decade, pleaded guilty in court to a single count of sending a menacing message by telephone to an American Muslim activist, according to a court official in Waterford, Ireland.
Damache was Colleen “Jihad Jane” LaRose’s contact in Ireland. She stayed with Damache as she stewed over her inability to kill the blasphemous cartoonist Lars Vilks. Colleen’s friend from Colorado, “Jihad Jamie” Paulin-Ramirez’s flew to Ireland and married Damache on the day she met him, but later regretted the decision.
It’s not clear exactly how involved Damache was in the plot, but Colleen has suggested to reporters that although the plot was partially Damache’s idea, that she was mad at him for not being urgent enough in his zeal to kill Vilks.
Interestingly, as soon as Damache plead guilty he was released from custody for time served. Immediately following his release, he was re-arrested on an extradition warrant and will now be sent to the US to stand trial for the more serious terrorism charge.
