So is Obama being blamed yet?

This will be Obama's Fugazi.

The Taliban just directly email CNN now?

Unpossible. No Americans killed, and they insisted that it didn't matter in other attacks because of that. They'd be incredible hypocrites to make a stink about this.

Great, this will probably mean everything gets shut down again here in Kandahar.  (Been shut down since WED because of the 9/11 anniversary).

$100 says they also try to bake it into some royal class derp by attempting to link it to 9/11 too.

And take credit for attacks that might be regarded in some circles as a complete failure?

Do they still get their virgins if they're unable to kill anyone but themselves?

That's messed up. It's almost like we're at war or sumthin.

But ... it's 9/13 over there right now!
 
2013-09-13 12:00:20 AM
Seems like 9/12 is the new date of choice for terrorists.

\Oh, hai NSA guy. Sorry I typed all the keywords in one post.

Close the consulate. We don't need a presence in Afghanistan. Its just a tempting target.

I bet Miley Cirus Twerking is to blame.. If not, does anyone know what video is responsible for this attack?

I thought it was because of a YouTube video.

The hosts of Fox and Friends just collectively peed themselves with excitement.

Let's get this out of the way before the Potato Brigade comes derping in. Embassy attacks under the Bush administration:

January 22, 2002. Calcutta, India. Gunmen associated with Harkat-ul-Jihad al-Islami attack the U.S. Consulate. Five people are killed.
June 14, 2002. Karachi, Pakistan. Suicide bomber connected with al Qaeda attacks the U.S. Consulate, killing 12 and injuring 51.
October 12, 2002. Denpasar, Indonesia. U.S. diplomatic offices bombed as part of a string of "Bali Bombings." No fatalities.
February 28, 2003. Islamabad, Pakistan. Several gunmen fire upon the U.S. Embassy. Two people are killed.
May 12, 2003. Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Armed al Qaeda terrorists storm the diplomatic compound, killing 36 people including nine Americans. The assailants committed suicide by detonating a truck bomb.
July 30, 2004. Tashkent, Uzbekistan. A suicide bomber from the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan attacks the U.S. Embassy, killing two people.
December 6, 2004. Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Al Qaeda terrorists storm the U.S. Consulate and occupy the perimeter wall. Nine people are killed.
March 2, 2006. Karachi, Pakistan again. Suicide bomber attacks the U.S. Consulate killing four people, including U.S. diplomat David Foy who was directly targeted by the attackers. (I wonder if Lindsey Graham or Fox News would even recognize the name "David Foy." This is the third Karachi terrorist attack in four years on what's considered American soil.)
September 12, 2006. Damascus, Syria. Four armed gunmen shouting "Allahu akbar" storm the U.S. Embassy using grenades, automatic weapons, a car bomb and a truck bomb. Four people are killed, 13 are wounded.
January 12, 2007. Athens, Greece. Members of a Greek terrorist group called the Revolutionary Struggle fire a rocket-propelled grenade at the U.S. Embassy. No fatalities.
March 18, 2008. Sana'a, Yemen. Members of the al-Qaeda-linked Islamic Jihad of Yemen fire a mortar at the U.S. Embassy. The shot misses the embassy, but hits nearby school killing two.
July 9, 2008. Istanbul, Turkey. Four armed terrorists attack the U.S. Consulate. Six people are killed.
September 17, 2008. Sana'a, Yemen. Terrorists dressed as military officials attack the U.S. Embassy with an arsenal of weapons including RPGs and detonate two car bombs. Sixteen people are killed, including an American student and her husband (they had been married for three weeks when the attack occurred). This is the second attack on this embassy in seven months.


In other words, shiat can happen at consulates and embassies. Beef up security for next time. Don't derp and obsess over imagined conspiracies, Republicans.

I'm not sure what to think about this, until I'm properly advised by a fake PhD at the institute for moar war.
