Early reports stating a car bomb on the US Consulate in Herat Afghanistan. Injuries being reported.
@TsarReed Another small explosion and some gunfire. General Consulate area it seems. Maybe not quite over. #Afghanistan #herat
"What difference does it make?"
@kabul3 Cellphones jammed at scene of attack on US Consulate in Herat #Afghanistan
@kabul3 Taliban claim credit for the attack on US Consulate in Herat #Afghanistan alleging several Afghan & foreign forces were killed
#Greta van Sustern reports: US consulate in Herat #Afghanistan under attack. #lnyhbt #tgdn Repeat of #Benghazi ? Will they get help?
Send John Kerry.
Is Obama going to arm the Taliban now?
I wonder if they'll wake the president? He's probably in the situation room right now. HAH!
Even the Taliban sense the weakness of this Administration.
Detroit Dead....Taliban Alive......Heckuva job, Barry.
That’s why they are attacking
How many games of spades will PrezBO play tonight?
So one year from now we still won’t know what happened.
Probably ordered by Saudi Arabia because Obunga failed to bomb Syria. Not that Obunga gives a flying funk about dead servicemen.
Yep, attack with impunity.
@BBCBreaking deems explosion “huge” from suicide bomber, fighters are attacking the building. #consulate #Herat #Afghanistan
Not that it will ever be revealed, but I wonder if and to what extent our people asked, or even begged, for additional security.
GREAT 2016 campaign slogan!
Greta just reported one dead, seven wounded. Local police reporting situation under control.
Someone should tell McCain they the attackers are shouting Allahu Akbar.
That video hacked me off a little too......
The weapons given to al Qaeda and the Taliban
by Obama-the=Undocumented Moslem are coming
‘home to roost’ (as the traitor planned).
How sad. First thought was he would have to ask Putin.
Not until Obammy renames them “the rebels”.
Bomb hits near US consulate in Afghanistan; 1 dead
By AMIR SHAH
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.
Men. take care and kick some azz.
Has O Dark Won deemed this to be work place violence as yet?
He’s playing hearts with Reggie in the sauna.
Relax, it was just a movie.
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.
More diplomats that will never be avenged.
“Even the Taliban sense the weakness of this Administration.”
The Taliban?! Heck, your local garden club can sense the weakness and duplicity as well.
“How sad. First thought was he would have to ask Putin..”
Who? Dear leader or our diplomats in Afghanistan?
Is Obama drunk again, or will we know where he is during this event?
