President Barack Obama made his first comments Tuesday on the latest terror warning that prompted the United States to close embassies and consulates in 16 countries.
On NBC's Tonight Show Tuesday, Obama said the latest security threats from al-Qaida are "significant enough that we're taking every precaution."
Retired foreign service officer William Davnie joins The Daily Circuit to discuss his firsthand experience with embassy closures and evacuations.
Davnie was involved with two embassy evacuations when he was stationed in Tajikistan in 1997. He lives in Minneapolis now after serving in more than a dozen countries, including Thailand, Russia and Iraq, over a 26-year diplomatic career.
