Alerts go to law enforcement ahead of 9/11 anniversary

By Evan Perez, CNN Justice Reporter

Federal authorities have issued a series of general alerts to law enforcement for vigilance with the approach of the Sept. 11 anniversary and a possible U.S. military strike in Syria, law enforcement officials said.

U.S. law enforcement officials say there's no indication of specific plots in the Unites States related to the 9/11 anniversary, which is the first since the 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.

    America is the root of all terror. America has invaded sixty countries since world war 2.
    In 1953 America overthrow Iran's democratic government Mohammad Mosaddegh and installed a brutal dictator Shah. America helped Shah of Iran to establish secret police and killed thousands of Iranian people.
    During Iran-Iraq war evil America supported Suddam Hossain and killed millions of Iranian people. In 1989, America, is the only country ever, shot down Iran's civilian air plane, killing 290 people.
    In 2003,America invaded Iraq and killed 1,000,000+ innocent Iraqi people and 4,000,000+ Iraqi people were displaced.
    Now America is a failed state with huge debt. Its debt will be 22 trillion by 2015.

    Stevens got himself killed in Benghazi by being in an "unprotected outpost" on the wrong day of the year! He should have returned to our protected embassy in Tripoli. Stupid mistake for such an important ambassador to make! He knew he was in danger, but did nothing proactive to get to safety.
    How many ambassadors do we have deployed world wide? Ambassadors are supposed to be "smart" people. Is it really necessary for our Sec. of State to remind every ambassador to look at the calendar every year and make sure they are inside our highly protected embassies on every 9/11?
    Let's see who gets targeted this year! Someone will! Listen up ambassadors, don't be stupid! Hillary was too busy running around the world and couldn't keep up with all her urgent dispatches. Now, Kerry is too busy trying to start another war! Do any of you ambassadors think you can expect quick military action to save your butt if you are in the wrong place on the wrong date? 9/11 will be with us for at least another 100 years! Mark your calendars!
