Some are saying that Baghdad could be the next Benghazi as a Muslim caliphate is forming in Iraq. Megyn Kelly discusses how the embassy in Baghdad is not being evacuated because of ‘political sensitivity’. See below according to Liberty Unyielding:

The first is from Megyn Kelly’s Fox News show on Friday, 13 June. In it, she talks with retired Army Lieutenant Colonel Ralph Peters, a Fox military analyst. Peters makes this point:

There is a very good chance our embassy will be attacked before Obama does a thing.

It can only happen if Americans allow obama and his minions to kill our people and we do not react. I’ll bet on Americans!

Not to worry.

Ubama is sending 275 troops to guard the embassy.

That's more than enough.

I do not remember where I read this, but these troops are being sent in to “advise/train”, and not to fight.

Can anyone find their ROEs? Are they being set up like sitting ducks?

If he lets this embassy with several thousand people get kacked there really will be hell to pay. They need to evacuate everyone now while the airport is open.

Megan needed to let Lt Col Peters speak and not interrupt.

They’re probably not even issued any ammunition. I bet it’s all locked up and it will take a Presidential order to unlock it ... and you know what happened in Benghazi.

Per Wikipedia:

At 440,000 square meters, it is the largest and most expensive embassy in the world and is nearly as large as Vatican City. It employs 15,000 people and cost $750 million to build.

Well, we can kiss that $750 million goodbye.

Agree. I was interested to hear what he had to say. She needs to have him back on so he can talk.

I think my “minor” disagreement here reflects a bigger issue. Commentators need to let the experts they bring on their shows talk....or don’t bring them on at all.

Well that would make Benghazi insignificant in comparison...

Gee, what a random, unexpected, lucky break for Hillary that would be...

Who would think that something so opportune could happen for her right now...

And as for the massive loss of life, well, “what difference does it make,” right?

He was just getting into the most important issues of the discussion and she cut him off. I wanted to hear what he had to say. She’s usually better than that. Hopefully she’ll have him back on and allow him to talk.

The Marines and soldiers are there to assist with a possible total evacuation. The Special Ops units are supposed to be advising and training, but are not there yet. Where they are going when the Iraqi army is scattered is beyond me. I do know the Pentagon is against all boots on the ground, probably except for protecting the embassy.

After so many green on blue attacks in Afghanistan, the rules were changed a little about being allowed to carry weapons when working with the Afghan army. Since the Marines and soldiers will be alone, they better be armed to the hilt.

That's probably more accurate.

I love Megan Kelly but sometimes she needs to know when to shut up.
