(Newser) – The State Department plans to reopen all but one of the diplomatic posts it shuttered this week over a possible al-Qaeda attack, reports CNN. Only the embassy in Sanaa Yemen will stay closed over continued concerns of a terror strike. The Obama administration will reopen 18 other facilities throughout North Africa and the Middle East on Sunday. In a separate incident, the US pulled most personnel from its consulate in Lahore, Pakistan, yesterday; that consulate will stay closed for now.

TRUTH BE TOLD...... Obama proves he's an (educated fool) everyday... He hasn't a clue about anything. Obama and his Team of morons, idiots, and imbeciles, monitor every communication device in the world. but they can't tell anybody .. if Al-Qaeda is going to attack anybody, today, tomorrow, or a year from now. (1) ..Obama losses the Afghan War to guys riding donkeys, wearing nightshirts, gym shoes and sandals .. (2) ..then warns Americans of the North Korean threat to attack the US, the greatest military country on earth .. (3) ..then he closes 19 US Embassies in 19 countries, out of FEAR of a few Al-Qaeda terrorists? The whole Islamic world is erupting in chaos and violence. and America is led by the (educated fool) Obama, who hasn't got a single clue, on what the hell is going on anywhere................................................... REALLY

I'm glad they're taking down the white flag and putting Old Glory back up.
