A year ago at the Democratic Nationa Convention is heard this several times.

Bin Laden was dead and Al-Qaeda was on the run.

Since Bush was gone everyone would like us.

We even killed Bin Laden at his house.

So, what has happened?

Now, both Democrats and Republicans are chattering like parents at a little league game.

Now, although they won't be more specific, we are told there is a huge plan to attack.

So much so, we are shuting embassies down.

Why didn't we shut the consulate down on Benghazi a year ago?

And here in our country, Reuters is reporting , "A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans."

Although these cases rarely involve national security issues, documents reviewed by Reuters show that law enforcement agents have been directed to conceal how such investigations.

The undated documents show that federal agents are trained to "recreate" the investigative trail to effectively cover up where the information originated, a practice that some experts say violates a defendant's Constitutional right to a fair trial. If defendants don't know how an investigation began, they cannot know to ask to review potential sources of exculpatory evidence - information that could reveal entrapment, mistakes or biased witnesses.

I don't recognize my country.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

Bob I agree that every soldier and federal employee, including Congress, the Judicial, and the Executive branch, take an oath to " protect and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic".
Many of them have voted to suspend the bill of rights. I find it sad and suspicious that few US news sources are calling them out on it. Ron Paul has been trying to warn people for decades. Can you hear me now?

Ed Snowden is also not a "leaker" as he exposed high treason. He is protected under law. Diane Feinstein sits on an "Intelligence Committee" charged with over seeing the NSA. Frank Church created them to be adversaries of the NSA for good reason. Today she(and others like her even in previous administrations) is paid off by "defense" contractors and defends this treasonous cold war on Americans. It's how tyranny always happens and it always ends with accountability, or implosion of the nation.

Our nation's been hijacked. It's being run by criminals that have been paid off by "defense" contractors and foreign interests. The NSA's spying on Americans, which means we are their enemy; which means they are committing treason, levying war on us. They must be held accountable if the nation is to recover. They won't stop without treason charges & firing squads for those participating in/advocating this treason. This includes Sen. Lindsey Graham as well as Nancy Pelosi and many others.

The war is being waged against us. We are the targets of a psy-ops campaign designed to create public opinion. And all 6 media conglomerates are on board. You've heard about everything but Fiscal cliff 2, they'll start banging that drum in September. The US has exceeded the debt ceiling. The Russians and Chinese seem to be gearing up to defend the Syrian government, could that be the motivation for closing embassies? None of these issues are being reported.

Media is this nation's greatest enemy.

It's the tact that the American citizenship and our Constitution is a greater threat to America than Muslim terrorists.

I agree that at 62 this is not the America I grew up in and remember. It is not the America I studied in History Books or the America my father, his brothers and cousins fought for. I lived through 50's, 60's, and 70's and I saw all the race riots, Vietnam Protests, Drugs, Gangs, Illegal Immigrants, Welfare, Medicaid and all the other social ills that has made my America unrecognizable. The only problem is that they never put the blame on the people who cause the problems. It all about votes

It's easy to see that this is not the America our fathers fought to preserve and it's clear as a bell who is behind this change once a person looks behind the diversions of party politics. That we are not a democracy, that we are not capitalist , that we have not really been those things for a long time is more a realization of our naivety, but that we have become fascist at the hands of those we saved from fascism, now that's a kick in the pants.

The embassies closings may be for real (in which case we are leaving the Middle East to the terrorist) or they may be use a NSA fund raiser scam OR Obama is using it to drown out all the other scandals by scaring us into thinking we are being attacked (and grab more power in the process.)

Now matter what, the whole thing STINKS.

It is fishy and just does not have the feel of a real threat.
