So as of last Sunday the US State Dept. closed down 19 foreign embassies and facilities in North Africa and the Middle East due to an ongoing “terror alert” begun last Friday based on what Thomas Gaist in "US officials cite deadly drone strike in Yemen to defend NSA spying operations" reports US officials call a "need to exercise caution.” Gaist declares this a “euphemistic way of saying the government does not have credible, specific evidence to offer to the public.” Read more about Real Global Terror Alert or NSA-Justifying Scare Tactic?

Bill Quigley has taken a hard and well-researched look at Obama’s continuation and escalation of what Quigley terms the “draconian domestic civil liberties intrusions pioneered under the Bush administration” (involving freedoms of speech, of assembly of association, to privacy, to a fair trial, of religion, etc.).
