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.

True. Remember the Alamo.
And then there’s War, the band, in which 0bama thinks he’s the “Cisco kid”, or the “Low Rider”
Common denominator in 1975 and 2014: Traitorous Democrats.
Widely reported to cost $750 million. It even got a wiki entry.
The MSM is mostly ignoring this, it seems.
Just started a Bing search “Baghdad US Embassy” looking for map of the huge compound.
This was the very first entry.

CNN is replaying the OJ van ride.
He hasn't so far.
It was Nero who fiddled (or played the cithara) while Rome burned. Some say he started the fire and put the blame on the Christians, who he had executed. Even though it is not certain what Nero did while Rome burned to the ground, we do know what Zer0 is doing. Zer0.
Largely true, although in 1975 we had a semi-Republican President that had probably played football too many years without a helmet. And see if this sounds familiar - he ignored solid Republican principals and tried to cow-tow to the liberals and democraps, - and lost anyway.
Quick! Somebody ask Thad Cochran what he thinks of these developments! See if he says something like “We’ll deal with Saddam Hussein as soon as he’s captured!”
Al-Arabia channel just confirmed that Baghdad airport is being attacked
BREAKING: Attacks on Baghdad Airport with mortar rounds according to AlArabiya
Horrible - this has obviously been in the planning stages for some time, and I don’t want to think what surprises they have in store.
That particular story is a Drudge composite of the story released yesterday that we were removing non-essential personnel from the Green Zone, and the stories of Baghdad bombings over the last several weeks. The personnel removed were replaced with additional security personnel.
Regarding Obama, he would be just as ineffective in the White House war room as he is on the golf course
Remember, his trip was scheduled weeks ago and the war in Iraq wasn’t scheduled at all.
It is VERY LIKELY that Iranian Qods forces and ICRG forces are in Baghdad now calling the shots. Not good for our guys.
