Israeli sources have revealed that Egypt’s General Intelligence warned jihadists were planning attacks on U.S. and Israeli embassies as early as a week before they occurred on the anniversary of Al Qaeda’s 9/11 terror attacks.
The report indicated that the group behind the attacks was Global Jihad. This group is now supsected in the deaths of 16 Egyptian border guards in Sinai — deaths for which some Egyptian officials originally blamed Israel.
A letter from Egyptian intelligence warning of pending attacks was circulated to all Egyptian security posts on September 4th.
U.S. President Barack Obama has not attended a daily intelligence briefing since September 5th.
