Reports are starting to show up on Twitter of explosions in the International Zone in Baghdad, aka the Green Zone. It is about 2:15 a.m. in Baghdad, IIRC.
#BREAKING assaults beginning in Green Zone, #Baghdad. #ISIS sleeper cells activated! #Iraq #Iran
#BreakingNews Huge explosions are now reported inside the Green Zone in #Baghdad. #ISIS #Iraq
.@AllMilitaryNews Not me; it is the Iraqi state TV who reported that..
Sorry....Obama’s busy on the 19th hole.
Home base to Golf Cart One . Come in!
As always, these are unconfirmed reports in a war zone. Take with a grain of salt before getting the vapors.
If your vehicles and every gas can you own aren’t slam full at this point you need your head examined.
That made me laugh out loud!
Prayers up for all our people still there.
"Between 50 and 100 US Marines and Army personnel arrive at US Embassy in Baghdad"
This is sensory overload - too much wrong to absorb and just impossible to deal with. Horrific scandals are being minimized.
The devil must be laughing - doesn’t he love chaos?
Obama is too busy yapping about Climate Change to give a damn about this..besides, this is what he wants anyway..a Caliphate is the Muslim Dictator’s ultimate goal
Exactly. The pResident won’t become too concerned until he reads about it in the Washington Post, and then he may become very, very angry and whip out his red Sharpie.
If true, the famous amateur golfer is going to be doing some serious fundraising and golfing.
Calling in the Spartans.
They said the Battle For Baghdad would start Monday.
It’s Monday there now.
Apparently there was a text from inside the embassy: “TOO LATE ALAMO”...
Never mind the 3 am phone call, Obama can’t even respond to the 3 pm phone call.
It’s a phone and a pen if I recall correctly. Unfortunately it is very ineffective and quite old technology.
Muslims keep their own.
Still looking for confirmation. Problem is Iraqi government is apparently blocking social media, so first hand reports are scarce.
From Google..search parameter-last hour.
