So I’ve literally spent the past week or so trying to wrap my brain around the recent decision to close shop on 21 different embassies around the globe. I can almost hear the collective shouts now: why the hell would it take so long to figure that out? First, stop screaming or you’ll wake up the NSA watcher assigned to you. Second, this move only makes sense if I accept one of two premises. Third, I was joking about the NSA thing (they don’t sleep!).
What are those two premises that must be accepted for any of this al-Qaeda (version 3.0) threat to make sense?
