Al Qaeda Threatens Obama’s Grandmother

3

Kenya – In the wake of Osama bin Laden’s death, an African branch of al-Qaeda got personal, threatening President Obama’s step-grandmother. Security had already been increased around Sarah Obama’s home in Kenya after bin Laden’s death, but it was beefed up further after Somalia-based Al Shabaab’s threat. The number of police patrolling around the clock is enough “to patrol the entire village,” the police chief tells ABC News.

Even so, “my life has not been affected in any way,” says the 88-year-old. “It has not restricted my movement. If the government has decided to bring more security personnel, we are OK with it.” Other threats have been issued in recent days, including one from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, led by Anwar al-Awlaki. A leader of that group said yesterday that America would come to “wish for the days of Osama.”

  1. Maybe now BHO will begin to understand how Israel feels when dealing and negotiating with these radical Muslim low-lifes.

    I also read that bin Laden’s son decided to sue the President. Yep, maybe now he will begin to understand Israel’s position.

  2. For those of you who doubted that President Obama’s decision to authorize the raid on Bin Ladin required no courage on the president’s part, I hope you begin to appreciate the complexity of the world and the courage it takes to lead.
