Special Report: American Embassy in Tunisia over-run, at least three dead

More deaths of Americans on sovereign soil and the State Department still does nothing concrete.  How many more must die before we see the folly of our policy and change it to reflect what drives our enemies to want to kill us.  It is not the film causing all this unhappiness, it is just the next step in the steady creep of Islam and sharia across the globe.  The film had been on YouTube for almost a year before it made it to the Islamic world, and the attacks on embassies had been planned since August 30.  Islam needs but the flimsiest excuse, the film in question happened to fit their need at the moment.

Tunisia Protests: Two Dead As Protesters Attack U.S. Embassy

TUNIS, Sept 14 (Reuters) - At least two people were killed and 29 others were wounded on Friday when police fought hundreds of protesters who ransacked the U.S. embassy in Tunisia in their fury over a film denigrating the Prophet Mohammad, state television said.

Tunisian President Moncef Marzouki condemned what he called "an attack against the embassy of a friendly nation".

Tunisia expects Washington to guarantee around a fifth of the $2.2-2.5 billion its needs to borrow next year to help its economy recover after its revolution last year overthew its veteran leader and triggered the Arab Spring uprisings.

16T in debt we are and this administration sees fit to send billions to prop up what is a jihadist/sharia compliant regime.

A Reuters reporter saw police open fire to try to quell the assault, in which protesters forced their way past riot police into the embassy.

The protesters smashed windows, hurled petrol bombs and stones at police from inside, and started fires in the embassy and the compound. A black plume of smoke rose from the building.

One protester was seen throwing a computer out of a window, while others walked away with telephones and computers.

A Tunisian security officer near the compound said the embassy had not been staffed on Friday, and calls to the embassy went unanswered. A Reuters reporter saw two armed U.S. soldiers on the roof.

Health Minister Khalil Zaouia told state media at least two people died and 29 were injured, revising down an earlier toll from state television which said three died and 28 had been wounded.

The protesters, many of whom were Islamic Salafists, also set fire to the nearby American School, which was closed at the time, and took away laptops and tablet computers.

The protests began after Friday prayers and followed a rallying call on Facebook by Islamist activists that was quickly endorsed by the local faction of the Islamic militant group Ansar al-Sharia.

Fridays are always dicey; agitated Muslims stream out of their mosques and look for some way to dispel their naked aggression, whipped up by the vitriol of their imam.  But remember, Islamophobia is the real problem.
