A three word text was released from inside the Embassy about six hours ago: Too late Alamo. That message is open to interpretation.
Just minutes ago news came from within the United States Embassy in Baghdad that the Iraqis have shut down internet service for those barricaded inside. Limited text messages via private cell phones are still coming through.
It is unknown how many of the more than 5,000 U.S. civilians in Baghdad are actually taking refuge inside the embassy compound. NBC war correspondent, Richard Engel reported last night that civilians in and around Baghdad have boarded up residences and businesses.
The embassy lockup is a reminder of when Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait in August of 1990 and U.S. civilians were held hostage for months, including those from the State Department and Department of Transportation.
This week ISIS terrorists operating in Iraq have toppled Fallujah, Ramadi, Tikrit, and Mosul, robbing the Bank of Mosul for more than $450 million dollars. ISIS leaders now claim they are the richest terror group in the world, topping al Qaeda and Hamas. This militant group has vowed to overrun Baghdad, the nation's capital, and eliminate the Shiite ruling party.

Very impressive feat.
With Barry spending Father’s Day with a couple of homosexuals, I wonder if anybody is paying attention in the so called “war room”. (The recent hangout of many hip hop types and Hollyweird celebrities since 2008).
obama is the single worst leader , of any nation, in human history.

Is he still golfing?
They have figured out how to stop the relentless twitter attacks!
We are doomed!
Yep. I’ve never bought the idea that he’s a mastermind of evil, he’s just an awful president.
I’d say Alamo is a Texan.
Send Kerry and Hagel to sort out the mess
Fire up the helicopters, it’s Vietnam II. Meanwhile, out on the golf course ...
Did Øbama have the sense to move the Amphibious Readiness Group (ARG) close enough to do the job?
DERELICTION OF DUTY ... he is definitely Impeachable, but would the Senate pass sentence? Slow Joe must give them pause ... exactly why he was chosen.
The only competition I can think of is Caligula. The really sad part is that O. seems to be giving his base exactly what it wants. That's a recipe for disaster.
You would think that Fox News would interrupt their REPLAY of Fox News Sunday to report on this development.
Way to go FNC.
Not sure how tall the embassy is there.. but, if it is high enough (above rooftops, so as not to be seen), they can break out the portable sat dish/sat phone.. (they may be using it now, but keeping that part quiet.. If Obumble learns this, no doubt he will make a press conference to let our enemies know)..
Also, I think I understand the message.. USA (govt) didn’t come to their aid..
Release all the gitmo “freedom fighters”! Obammy will save us without bombs and baby killing!/s
