It was not immediately clear what the cause of the blast was.

Wait for them to trot out the video excuse instead of blaming it on terrorists which will be the real reason again, just like Benghazi.

Update: Reports are that was a lone suicide bomber and the explosion caused no damage inside the embassy itself.

Some reports of 2 dead, though one may be the bomber.

Extremetist on the march. I remember after the fall of Murbarak Clinton had tomatoes thrown at her car in Egypt in the summer of 2012. Then 9/11 the video and embassy blow up. Read an article about how we get allies and anti American allignments wrong. The State Department seems to be where this weakness lies. Turkey is part of Nato, and Obama is siding with the Muslim Brotherhood as the power player over the Arab spring.

Reuters reporting: “ explosion at a side entrance to the U.S. embassy “ and
“Television footage showed a door blown out and masonry from the wall around it scattered in front of the entrance, although there did not appear to be any more significant structural damage.”

Or “high capacity” magazines in the U.S.

There are evil people in the world. Therefore, we must disarm law abiding Americans.

Can someone Photoshop the face of John Kerry onto the photo of Hillary in her green outfit with clinched fists screaming It Doesn’t Make A Difference during her Senate testimony?

Poor John... what a pair of shoes to fill...ugh....

The Turkish government says the bomb came from a “neo-Marxist” group.

Since their president Erdogan is a committed Islamist & is working to replace the secular state of Kemal Ataturk with Sharia, it wouldn’t make too much sense to ascribe this attack to fellow Islamists who just happen to be in a hurry.

Marxists? My foot.
