    Default US Embasy in Iraq under attack

    Surprised this hasn't been posted yet. Started early this morning our time.

    Twitter has a few live update feeds. No links, just passing along from other forums.

    Heard on another site POTUS sent the Marines in . No more Benghazis.

    I'd be shocked if he let another Benghazi happen. My bet is just the opposite and will promote it as what should have been done under obammys watch.

    There are a number of US personnel at Kirkuk airbase. They have close support and some fast movers. I'm surprised we didn't see some gun runs on the attacking forces against the Embassy.....

    They've been landing the C17's at Bagdad Airtport, then transferring to Ospreys. First Marines at the embassy.



    More C17's en-route. 82nd Airborne is also in the mix.

    Refreshing to see our personnel relatively safe with this CIC.

    Glad to see the show of force so quickly. Just pray this don't escalate into a major conflict. Don't need that right now.
