Yemeni police Thursday shot dead four protesters and wounded 34 others when they opened fire on a crowd attempting to storm the US embassy in Sana'a to protest a film mocking Islam, a security official said. The White House, meanwhile, said it was doing everything it could to protect its diplomats in Yemen, where witnesses reported that roads leading to embassy were closed down as the area was calm later in the evening.
"Four people were killed and 34 others were wounded in the clashes that lasted from morning until late in the evening" in the area around the U.S. embassy in Sanaa, the official said, adding that eight of them were "seriosuly injured." Rioters chanting O Messenger of Allah, O Mohammed... launched a second assault on the American compound following an attack rebuffed by security forces earlier in the day.
President Abdurabuh Mansour Hadi apologized to U.S. President Barack Obama and to the American people for the acts of a mob and ordered an investigation into the attack.

I think we’ve found an sure-fire way to disrupt Muslim societies. No need to go to war with Muslim nations, rather, let them kill themselves. I assume Mossad is paying attention....
Obama: “Yemeni police acted stupidly”
That’ll learn ‘em!..........
What no obligatory pic of Helen Thomas and the other 71 virgins ???
I wish we still had battleships, and a comander in chief that would use them.
Don’t you just love the way they call these terrorist savages “rioters”?
Four is not enough. Four million of these fanatics would be in the ballpark.
Thanks musicman. Love it.

That’s 10. Who has names for the other 62?
Yemeni police have weapons that are loaded? Shocking.
No fair. Why can’t the USMC have some, too?
I’ve been thinking of BB’s in that area a lot lately for some reason. With extended range sabots and smart projectiles there are a lot of possibilities. Shame, ain’t it.
