An utter display of cowardice that would make a Frenchman proud! More Al Qaeda pre-US election attacks forecast: Americans quietly lifted out
Instead of confrontation, the Obama administration has opted for retreat. debkafiles exclusive sources report that an administration team has hurriedly put together a list of 20 endangered countries where US diplomatic, military and economic may be targeted for al Qaeda attack. The list is prioritized according to the level of risk and US security capability for protection. The highest-risk locations have been quietly evacuated either to the US or West European countries - leaving only a skeleton staff behind for emergencies. A senior American source told DEBKAfle Tuesday that Tunisia, Libya, Mali, Nigeria and Egypt have been virtually denuded of a US presence. Middle East intelligence observers have told debkafile that they dont recall US diplomatic military and intelligence personnel, businessmen and technical staff with their families being withdrawn from the region on this scale or at comparable speed.
