U.S. Embassy warns Americans of security threat in the Philippines

By Associated Press

MANILA >> The U.S. government is warning its citizens in the Philippine capital that they are facing a security threat. It is urging them to avoid gatherings that may be regarded as “American events.”

In an emergency message today, the U.S. Embassy in Manila said “reliable security forces” detected a threat in suburban Pasay City. The embassy maintains a residential facility and a Veterans Affairs office in Pasay.

It did not describe the nature of the threat or say where the information came from. It says the threat remains through Oct. 10.

It says Americans should exercise “extreme caution” and keep a low profile.

The embassy had requested additional police security following an attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya in the wake of protests over an anti-Islam film.

Watch out for those "spontaneous demonstrations" that we were told happened in Libya in response to a movie trailer. Yeah, right.

Yes, it was due to the disrespectful movie video that set off the mortar & RPG attacks which later quietly turned out to be a terrorist attack on a U.S. Embassy yet our 'local boy' prez still goes around telling the Islamists & the world that he condemns the makers of the video who were expressing their freedom of speech causing the terrorist to spontaneously assault the U.S. Embassy killing the ambassador & three embassy officials on 9-11. Perhaps he should set up a Censor Panel to ensure no one ever makes a movie, video, book or speak of anything which may offend anyone, yes, then even he would have to keep his comments to himself as others may find what he says offensive.
