Iowa Congressman Steve King opposes the Obama Administration’s decision to close 19 U.S. embassies in Northern Africa and the Middle East all week due to terror threats.
Prison breaks in Iraq, Libya and Pakistan in late July freed hundreds of terrorists linked to al Qaeda. U.S. intelligence agencies reported heightened internet chatter about attacks on Western targets planned for this week, at the end of Ramadan (RAHM-uh-dawn), a month-long period of fasting and self-reflection for Muslims. King, a Republican, says the embassy closings were the wrong move.
King suggests President Obama has inappropriately sent “signals” to the enemy.
