The Marietta Daily Journal – Chambliss Terror threat heightened

WASHINGTON — The weekend closure of almost two dozen U.S. diplomatic posts in the Muslim world resulted from the gravest terrorist threat seen in years, the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee said Sunday.

U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) said “the chatter” intercepted by U.S. intelligence agencies led the Obama administration to shutter 22 embassies and consulates and issue a global travel warning to Americans.

“Chatter means conversation among terrorists about the planning that’s going on — very reminiscent of what we saw pre-9/11,” Chambliss told NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“This is the most serious threat that I’ve seen in the last several years,” he said.
