I'll tell you one thing. Whatever these Muslim savages are planning in their next big assault on the US, the one thing they are not worried about is what Obama may or may not do. He's a weak, spineless sister and they know it.
A senior U.S. official told ABC News that Al-Qaeda jihadists are plotting an attack that is “going to be big” and “strategically significant,” based on intercepted communications.
The new threats come fresh on the heels of the closure of 21 U.S. embassies and consulates in the Muslim world. How they must laugh at us. They chatter -- we close our embassies in the Muslim world. Boom.

“The part that is alarming is the confidence they showed while communicating and the air of certainty,” the official said, adding that the group — Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula — appeared to have a media plan for after the attack.
Authorities do not know the exact target of the planned attack, according to the official.
“We do not know whether they mean an embassy, an airbase, an aircraft, trains,” the official said.
The official said there is concern about devices that could be implanted inside the body of a terrorist.
“We are concerned about surgically implanted devices,” said. “These are guys who have developed the techniques to defeat our detection methods.”
The official also said authorities were stunned that the group broke “operational security” — meaning they talked likely knowing it would be picked up by intercepts.
