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

The substance of the briefing: "Give it a little more spin!"

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.

I feel for the Gold Star parents of America whose children have paid the ultimate price by dying for change in the Middle East.

Thanks for that. Not a hopeful scenario for sure.

A distinction that actually means something in the ME.

At one time, I thought he dithered so long so the situation would resolve itself before he had to actually do something. Now, I just think he’s a dumb sh!t.
