Notice the lack of posts on this topic...Hmmm...It's tragic and thank god for those brave security officers who likely saved the lives of those inside the embassy.

Cue the Blame Bush people next...Perhaps we should negotiate with Al Queda and have a sharing of feelings?

NYT:

"No Americans were killed or injured in the blast or when guards began to return fire"

If that were different there would be loads of posts, I am sure.
