US set to close embassies for day in Muslim world

WASHINGTON

The United States is shuttering its embassies and consulates throughout the Muslim world Sunday after receiving an unspecified threat, officials said.

State Department officials said Thursday that they were taking action out of an “abundance of caution.”

Spokeswoman Marie Harf cited information indicating a threat to U.S. facilities overseas and said some diplomatic offices may stay closed for more than a day.

Other U.S. officials said the threat was in the Muslim world, where Sunday is a workday. American diplomatic missions in Europe, Latin America and many other places are closed on Sunday.

Those officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to speak publicly about the matter.

Too bad the President who loves to lead from behind did not think about this a year ago. Obama and Hilliary forgot to close the embassy in Bengahzi and it cost 4 Americans their lives.

Close them permanently and save our tax dollars . They really don't need or want us there anymore. Unless we are giving them billions of our dollars.

TonyRizzo If your good buddy BILLY BOB CLINTON had done his job . We would never had 9/11.But no he listened to the B!%ch Hilliary and didn't take out Osama when he had the chance (3times) I believe. So as far as I 'm concerned 9/11 put the American deaths on his and Hilliary hands , not Bush's you libeturd
