This Was the Moment…

I still get chills when I recall President Obama’s 2008 convention speech. Unless it’s the norovirus I’m feeling.

Anyway, when his Muslim outreach is successfully completed, I look forward to his Tide Reduction Initiative:

Ambulances and fire fighters rushed to Ankara’s central Cankaya neighbourhood where many other institutions and embassies are also located.

Contrary to early reports in the Turkish press, the explosion is understood not to have been caused by a suicide bomber.

“It was not a suicide bomber or car bomb. Someone left a package or threw a package,” the source said.

An Associated Press journalist reported seeing a body in the street at a side entrance.

A witness on the ground has contradicted earlier Turkish media reports that the blast was caused by a suicide bomber. One source at the nearby British Embassy told the Daily Telegraph that the explosion was caused by a bomb.

“It was not a suicide bomber or car bomb. Someone left a package or threw a package,” the source said.

However, witnesses told CNN’s Turkish service that a bomber was seen appraching the building and later entereed a gate at the fortified compound.

Initial reports say the blast occurred near the gates of the visa section of the embassy compound. Security has been tightened around the embassy as there are fears that a second bomb could be detonated.

Oh well, at least there’s Egy—… I mean Lib—… well, Syri—… Iran is… uh… at least Afgh—….

Get to work on those tides, Mr. President!

    This is the foreign policy that we voted for and it’s about to get worse. John Kerry and Chuck Hagel – can you believe it?

    AND Uncle Aggie points out that this is not terrorism; it is a Man Caused Disaster. He said the administration came out with a statement calling it terrorist and that surely can’t be.
