Well there seems to be a media brown out tonight so who knows what we will wake up to tomorrow. I hope nothing.

I fear it will be less Tehran and more Mogadishu. Only this time with civilians and women.

Obama said he will be actually thinking about it in a few days. He’s moving with all the breakneck speed we’ve come to expect since he only took too long to do too little in Afghanistan. After all, he needs to come up with a set of rules of engagement that will hamstring any American military and which will lead to excessive American casualties. He has set a high standard for himself after all.

So sick over all of this. So many military people’s blood and guts sacrificed there for nothing.

Of course I’m so happy that zero is being briefed while he’s busy golfing and raising money. /s So sick of him.

Nothing on Official US Embassy website in Baghdad nor on their Twitter/Facebook. It’s as if nothing is happening.

50 to 100 Marines have been sent to guard the Embassy. Hope we’re not going to have another Benghazi. At least they will have air support from the GHWBush carrier which has been sent (IF Obama authorizes air strikes-who knows if he will).

Oh he is! The news said between 100 and 150 Marines were sent to secure the embassy! He’s being firm and doing a lot from the golf course and the rubber chicken circuit. /s

Obama must have known that this might very well happen after ISIL took Fallujah awhile ago.

He should have had a plan in place already...yet he needs a "few days" to think about it.

From what I read on another thread here, the internet access at the embassy has been cut. So they couldn’t update even if they wanted. Messages - few - are getting out via text message.

Let’s hope the rules of engagement applied in Benghazi won’t be applied or that the enemy gets info on evacuation so they can shoot down helos as in extortion 17.

Mostly because there wasn’t much happening. Couple of Grads and mortar rounds, just like the old days. Flights are leaving on time now. The State Department mentioned the incident in their travel bulletin.

Sitting ducks is right.


A senior U.S. military official told Fox News about 100 Marines and Army soldiers have been sent to Baghdad to help with embassy security.

I agree 1OO%!! I live in Jacksonville, NC, which is blessed to be the home of Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base. I am reminded every day of those sacrifices by the missing limbs, the use of canes, and the signs of PTSD I see in my community college students.

I also despise the media who keep trying to excuse Obama's behavior this week-end by saying, "Bush went on vacations, too." GWB would never have left Washington with such a crisis going on! Still, he was roundly criticized for every trip he took to the ranch, even though her would have been in a constant state of communication with his advisers (who were much more competent than Obama's political cronies).

I am sick of hearing the excuse ‘blame Bush’. I must have heard, “it’s Bush’s fault” about 100 times today. Barry has been President for 5 1/2 years. He owns it. Is Barry too much of a WIMP to take ownership?

You’re exactly right. Can you imagine if Bush were in office right now? it would be wall to wall coverage of why Bush wasn’t running in there to save everyone. We’d probably be seeing the worst photos possible 24/7.
