Media blackout? U.S. Embassy in Kabul braces for imminent attack; Obama putts

I spent two-and-a-half years in Afghanistan and know Kabul fairly well. I’ve even spent an evening the U.S. Embassy there. And as a Member of Congress, I had the honor of traveling back to Afghanistan to visit our impeccable brave men and women deployed in the combat theater. So this latest development brings back a lot of clear memories — and concern.

Reported by our friends at Gateway Pundit, “The State Department issued a little noticed statement on Saturday warning of an “imminent complex attack” on the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan, telling Americans to avoid the area around the embassy.”

“As of February 2015, militants are preparing an imminent complex attack against the U.S. Embassy compound in Kabul City, Afghanistan, from a location near Massoud Circle. The U.S. Embassy is taking this threat seriously and advises American citizens to avoid the area.” Massoud Circle was the location of a deadly suicide bomb attack last September claimed by the Taliban.”

Funny how this is hardly being picked up by any of the mainstream media.

Needless to say I traveled through Massoud Circle quite a few time,s as it is a well-known centerpiece of the city — and therefore a target. And the U.S. Embassy is located less than three miles away.

Here’s more from the State Department warning:

“We strongly recommend that U.S. citizens traveling to or residing in Afghanistan enroll in the Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). STEP enrollment gives you the latest security updates, and makes it easier for the U.S. Embassy to contact you in an emergency. If you don’t have Internet access, enroll directly with the U.S. Embassy.“U.S. citizens in Afghanistan should regularly monitor the Travel Advisories on the website of the Embassy of the United States Kabul, Afghanistan, as well as the Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs website, where the Worldwide Caution, Country Specific Information and the Travel Warning for Afghanistan are found. In addition, the Embassy encourages U.S. citizens to review “A Traveler’s Checklist ” which includes valuable security information for those traveling or living in foreign countries.”

I know, President Obama has it all under control while he’s on a golfing trip to Palm Springs, California — you know those selfie stick videos take a toll. I’m praying there will be no attacks, but as we learned in the military, you always prepare for the enemy’s worse case scenario.

Wall Street Journal reporter, Margherita Stancati, found this tweet on Sunday (Afghanistan Time): “Police in Wazir inspecting every single car headed to Massoud Circle. They seem on the lookout for a specific threat. #kabul”

Just another day in the global Islamic jihad — then again, these are just armed insurgents, not terrorists and after all, Obama declared that combat operations had ended. Unfortunately, no one on the enemy side got the email or hard copy of that policy.

  1. Obama’s pulling out our troops gave ISIS the territory. His no policy making excuses and blaming the Christians for as he calls them in the PC anything but Islamic terrorist. After he created the problem they could have been stopped quickly, but Obama has refused to allow the military to do what they recommend to him and his non military advisors. Instead he tells the enemy that we will continue to let them expand without us interfering.

  2. Don’t you millennials feel outraged that YOUR president thinks the only way to connect with you is to take selfies with a selfie stick? What does that say about how intelligent HE thinks YOU are? How utterly pathetic for you.

    • That was my first thought with that stupid video of Obama the narcissist doing selfies and making faces in the mirror. If I were a millennial, I would be offended that he felt the only way to reach them was in a childish and condescending manner. He sent the message to them that he thinks they’re too stupid to understand anything unless it’s done in a comedic way, not to be taken seriously.

      • He makes a comedy of the role of POTUS. It truly is unbelievable. Can’t imagine any other president doing something so utterly stupid and undignified. Really just beyond words. How can anyone take anything about him serious? He is the laughing point of the entire world after this stunt. He’s the joke that just keeps on giving.

      • While Democrats in the U.S. liberal media defend this silly video, the international media is lambasting Obama for his undignified behavior demeaning as a world leader. I say he just keeps proving, again and again, that he is NOT a world leader.

      • I can’t think of a single world leader in the entire world that would have done this. It is bizarre. I think it is a sign that there is seriously something mentally wrong with him. Beyond everything else thus far, doing this is like a true sign of his complete failure to recognize what the President of the United States is. It is just weird.

      • The only thing that is missing from Obama’s news releases is a laugh track to put them into the proper perspective. The mindless one liner campaign slogans used to stir up the emotions of the liberal clones so that they can chant the meaningless mantras proving to the world just how stupid they are. While expressing hate and racism, soliciting violence as if that will in dear them to the majority that they are violating the rights of. No one has a choice in how they were born. Evaluate them by their behavior which they are responsible for. They insult us all be using their racism as an excuse for their bad behavior, and then calling us the racist when they are telling us of their racist hate for the majority.

      • He has to keep the “low information voters” happy and informed that their dear leader is not ignoring them…As for the rest of us who know what a bozo he is and what he is doing – he doesn’t give a rat’s patootie what we think…he’s got two more years to golf and party and take luxurious vacations, why should he care what is going on? In 2017 a Republican or conservative president will have to start the ugly task of cleaning up eight years of his mess…while he and his family are off somewhere living well and laughing at the stupidity of Americans.

      • Another one of his stupid insults to millennials was his lame skit-interview he did between two potted plants, or some such lunacy. Low intelligence crowd side-show.
