If ever there does surface evidence of this supposed communication between Ayman al-Zawahri in Pakistan and Nasir al-Wahisi in Yemen, which is the purported reason for closing embassies and issuing travel warnings, it will turn out to have been from two years ago. Mark this down on your calendar. They are flat out lying. This smells exactly like one of their lies.
This has all the characteristics of these kinds of lies. All you have to do is look at what the president's press secretary is saying. He will offer no proof, no specifics, nothing that they can quote when we do discover that it's a lie.
This comes in the wake of a mass revolt in congress against the president and congressional leaders over illegal NSA spying on US citizens, after a month of revelations by Edward Snowden about illegal invasions of US citizens' privacy during which despite all the efforts of the president and the media all the polling shows the public still believes Snowden did the right thing and is a whistleblower not a traitor, as the economy heads south again as was predicted by everybody except those who are given a platform in the media, and as further, even more startling revelations, of which they are certainly aware, are on the way.
They are lying.
