Tonight, terror strikes Saudi Arabia just minutes away from the U.S. consulate. Don’t you feel like you’re seeing attack after attack after attack? It’s either the desperation of a dying movement or a new more globalized conflict between Syria\Iraq. After all in the past three years they’ve trained thousands and sent them back to their countries this phase may have been intended.
The Obama administration also has a hand in this as well. They pulled a Michael Corleone and got rid of all the leaders who had control over these groups. Now Obama fails to call these terrorist out by their names because he doesn’t want to legitimize them.
Guess what, they’re already legit, Mr Obvious.

From Associated Press:
A suicide bomber carried out an attack early Monday near a U.S. diplomatic site in the Red Sea city of Jiddah, according to state-linked Saudi news sites.
Okaz news website said the bomber died in the attack, and that no other deaths were immediately reported. The bomber was apparently headed in a car toward a mosque and hospital that are near the U.S. consulate in Jiddah. Most of the consulate’s staff had reportedly moved offices to a new location.
Sabq news website reported that two security guards were wounded in the bombing.
U.S. Embassy officials in Saudi Arabia and Interior Ministry officials could not be immediately reached for comment. A State Department spokesperson, who was not authorized to be named and spoke on condition of anonymity, said U.S. officials are aware of reports of an explosion in Jiddah and are working with Saudi authorities to collect more information.
The attack comes just days before the end of the holy month of Ramadan, in which observant Muslims fast daily from dawn to dusk.
The U.S. Embassy in Riyadh regularly issues advisory messages for U.S. citizens in Saudi Arabia. On Sunday, the embassy issued a message reminding anyone taking part in religious rituals or other public events to be aware of their surroundings.
