SUICIDE BOMBER KILLS GUARD AT US EMBASSY IN TURKEY

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — In the second deadly assault on a U.S. diplomatic post in five months, a suicide bomber struck the American Embassy in Ankara on Friday, killing a Turkish security guard in what the White House described as a terrorist attack.

Washington immediately warned Americans to stay away from all U.S. diplomatic facilities in Turkey and to be wary in large crowds.

Turkish officials said the bombing was linked to leftist domestic militants.

The attack drew condemnation from Turkey, the U.S., Britain and other nations and officials from both Turkey and the U.S. pledged to work together to fight terrorism.

“We strongly condemn what was a suicide attack against our embassy in Ankara, which took place at the embassy’s outer security perimeter,” said White House spokesman Jay Carney.

“A suicide bombing on the perimeter of an embassy is by definition an act of terror,” he said. “It is a terrorist attack.”

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said police believe the bomber was connected to a domestic leftist militant group. Carney, however, said the motive for the attack and who was behind it was not known.

    Wait until that sh!t starts happening on American soil. See what your boy in the White House calls it.

    Meanwhile, he’s remodeling the White House into TWO Oval Offices. One for official meetings; the other for Moslem call-to-prayers.

    I’d say, “Wake up!” but it’s too late. :-(

    I think their asses are still burning from the last time they tried to play the racist-video card.

    O.K. Everyone all together now

    What difference, at this point, does it make?

    Hillary has resigned with no serious damage to her political capital. Shes paid off her 2008 campaign and already has a SuperPAC.

    Let the slaughter of the U.S. diplomats continue unabated.

    “be wary in large crowds” Hmmm. Like the large crowds at TSA choke points BEFORE screening at airports. Thanks Obama.
