Will they get help? What a good question.

I wonder if they'll wake the president? He's probably in the situation room right now. HAH!

Probably ordered by Saudi Arabia because Obunga failed to bomb Syria. Not that Obunga gives a flying funk about dead servicemen.

Not that it will ever be revealed, but I wonder if and to what extent our people asked, or even begged, for additional security.

Bomb hits near US consulate in Afghanistan; 1 dead

By AMIR SHAH
Associated Press

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Taliban militants staged a suicide car bombing and then engaged in a gunfight with security forces near the American consulate in the western Afghan city of Herat early Friday. Afghan officials said an Afghan translator was killed, but the U.S. said all of its consulate personnel were safe.

The attack, which injured several people, including police, underscored the perilous security situation in Afghanistan, where U.S.-led troops are reducing their presence ahead of a full withdrawal planned for next year. The insurgent strikes are no longer concentrated in the country’s south and east, but occur with troubling frequency in the north and west, which have been the more peaceful areas in years past.

Another youtube video by a defamer/hater of Islam caused ROPers to rise up, justifiably outraged, and we’re so sorry, Uncle Mustafa, etc.?
Man, it’s hard to fight these maniacs when your president belongs to the Muslim brotherhood and kowtows to rich Saudi poobahs the bass-terd.
