and many other sites.

"The Islamist Jihad group claimed responsibility for the attack against the US embassy compound in Sanaa and threatened that it would also target the British, Saudi and Emirati missions in the Yemeni capital.

The compound was hit by a car bomb and heavy gunfire lasting around 10 minutes following the blasts, a Yemeni security official said.

The dead included six Yemeni soldiers and four civilians, including an Indian. The six attackers - one wearing an explosives belt, also died in the explosion............."

Death toll now given as 16, this as a result of bomb, rocket and gun attack.

Fortunately, some innocent soul was pointing his digi-cam at the exact spot, just as it all kicked off!!

Reckon that the scapegoats are now being chosen at Langley and Ft Dix??!!
Sorry,are you implying the authorities are going to frame a US reservist for the attack?
My bad: Ft Meade.

Because thats exactly what the attackers want, a return to the dark ages.

Everytime the embassy is attacked they should increase aid to the government.
