Al Qaeda Plot in Final Stages

Wait didn’t his majesty campaign on the platform that Al Qaeda was decimated and on the run? You do know since 9/11/12 nothing was ever done in retaliation for the Benghazi attack. Heck the regime never went after anyone responsible.

Uh huh…. A little convenient this alert goes out today after CNN broke the story about dozens of CIA operatives on the ground in Benghazi during the attack.
