Obama defend Embassies closure

US President Barack Obama Friday said the  closure of US embassies across the Middle East and Africa this week  showed that al-Qaeda has ‘metastasized.’, news agencies reported.Obama

Obama dismissed the suggestion by a reporter at a press conference  that there was a conflict between his declaration in May that  al-Qaeda had been decimated and the actions this past week amid a  worldwide US terrorist alert.

While terrorists are ‘less likely’ to carry out ‘spectacular  attacks’ on the homeland like that of 9/11, they have the capacity to  ‘go after our embassies … our businesses … to be destabilizing  and disruptive in countries where the security apparatus is weak.’

‘That’s exactly what we’re seeing right now,’ Obama said.
