There are those in the administration that delude themselves into thinking we can work with Al Queda linked fighters in places like Libya and Syria and they will leave us alone. There are also those that think we can capture these fighters and return them to prisons in their home countries. The recent prison breaks in several countries shows this does not work. Those we capture should go straight to Gitmo. Al Queda wants to try a mass breakout there, but the Marines and the adjacent security perimeter make this a much tougher task.
The embassy closures were due to chatter between Al Queda leaders. Those who think the Obama efforts to co-opt Al Queda or that Muslim radicals will love us because he is not Bush are deluded.
