DHA photo A suspected suicide bombing has occurred in front of the U.S. Embassy in Ankara, causing at least two deaths.

Two people, including the suspected assailant, as well as a security guard, were killed in the explosion while two others were injured, according to initial reports.

The explosion occurred at the entrance used by the embassy personnel and their visitors, CNNTürk reported. A security guard at the X-ray machine at the entrance was killed in the explosion that occurred as the suspected suicide bomber was passing through the machine, the report said.

Bomb experts are at the scene of the blast, Daily News reporter Hüseyin Hayatsever reported from the site of the explosion. Police have taken precautions against the possibility of a second attack, he added.

Daily Vatan reporter Kıvanç El claimed in a televised interview that the police suspected that the assault was a suicide bomb attack and that there were body parts strewn around the site.

El said the blast occured at the embassy building’s second entrance.

Another reporter told NTV, citing U.S. embassy personnel, that there was no damage inside the embassy.

Ambulances and firefighters have been dispatched to the area.

All US embassy personnel have been taken to saferooms in the embassy, a reporter from daily Star told NTV.

I have always said that the people who work the metal detectors will be the first to die when someone with a bomb or a gun wish to enter.

Hillary’s and the demoncrat party’s legacy is to make every white Western European being a SITTING TARGET for terrorism and murder.

What’s left will be stupid takers and fakers who are much easier to dominate.

The ruling class always wins. Parasites reproduce much faster than workers.

Ah, nothing to worry about then.

Our fly-bait pres’ent has everything under control.

Because he’s a Democrat.

I don’t believe in confiscating all suicide bombs. People should be allowed to own suicide bombs with a legitimate sporting purpose, but they should all be registered./sarc

I heratedly agree with you that when a suicide bomb is found it should not be confiscated.

It should be strapped to the user , taken to a safe place and detonated. No Sarcasm.

Exactly, just what I was going to say. This woman was/is an unmitigated absolute disaster from hell as S of S and once again the communist propaganda machine posing as our MSM gives her a pass. Can you imagine Condi Rice saying “What difference does it make?” There would be coverage 24/7, calls for her to resign, NBC would be holding public forums with people crying, saying how upset they are blah blah non stop.

That pretty much explains why Al-Qaeda controls 2 new countries in the middle east with a 3rd on the way. They never had it so good under our first foreign born POTUS and this b*tch.

What difference does it make

This is the difference that it makes. The inept response at the highest levels of our government, the groveling before the Muslim world, the rush to bury the truth for political cover... all of that merely emboldens the terrorists to strike again and again.

That is the difference.

The attacker was a Marxist:

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2013/02/01/turkey-embassy-bomb/1882475/

Turkish Interior Minister Muammer Güler told reporters that the attacker was Ecevit Sanli, a member of an outlawed leftist group that news media reported as being the Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party/Front (DHKP/C). The suspect in the attack spent eight months in prison for attending illegal demonstrations, Turkish news media said.

Sure he was. If you look at the local Turkish press (Hurriet Daily News) there’s an article just above the embassy bombing about bin Laden’s son-in-law being arrested in a hotel in the Çankaya district of Ankara (not far from our embassy).

I agree. It is an act of terror by the Obama administration.

Notice how quickly the White House deemed this a “terrorist attack”.. Is that because at least one Muslim was killed (the bomber)??? Or is it because 0bama doesn’t have a re-election to worry about anymore??
