With the terrifying news out of Iraq that the Islamist militants are vowing to capture Baghdad, is it only a matter of time before the U.S. Embassy will be evacuated and abandoned?

Should we expect to see iconic images like this rooftop evacuation from the U.S. Embassy in Saigon, Vietnam in 1975?










Or, does our 104 acre compound/fortress U.S. Embassy in Baghdad,  “the biggest and most expensive in the world” already have landing lawns so rooftop evacuations will not be necessary?

If the U.S. is forced to evacuate, tell your children that this was when our nation officially lost the War on Terror.

But have no fear! Our Commander in Chief is totally engaged for today he is visiting an Indian Reservation in North Dakota. Is he there to gather support to change the name of the Washington Redskins?  Surely, THAT is a crisis he can handle.

Apparently, the possibility of our embassy being overrun is not that dire because after visiting the Reservation, President Obama and the First Lady have some swanky reservations of their own!  This time in ritzy Palm Springs, CA. There they will engage the locals in a little fundraising and most likely, a few rounds of golf in the golf capital of the Golden State.

According to the local Desert Sun:

“The couple are scheduled to arrive at the Palm Springs International Airport on Friday for a four-day visit. The local news also reported, “The couple’s destination within the valley remained a mystery Thursday.”

Let us hope that over the next four days, images of Obama golfing in Palm Springs will not appear along side video of American Embassy personnel hurriedly boarding aircraft while clutching boxes of classified material.

THAT might just ruin his peaceful Palm Springs weekend and interrupt strolls along Bob Hope and Frank Sinatra Drive.

Lest we forget, that helicopter on that roof top stairway exit was an Air America helicopter, one of several which made many, many round trips out to waiting United States Navy ships offshore.
More details, first hand accounts, of that day and much more, and also the photo credit are available at airdashamericadotorg.

We gave up the War on Terror the first Tuesday in November 2008; we gave legitimacy to the fifth column of American communists that have been masquerading as liberals, democrats, progressives, whatever - they are ALL 100% anti-American commie marxists who have done untold damage to the fabric of our society. We are currently fighting for the very soul of our nation....the conservative victories in local primaries and even in Europe give us all hope, but the fight ahead will be long and dirty; take the gloves off and get into the gutter with them....that's all they understand is brute force, because the words 'honor' and 'integrity' are as alien to the neo-commies as 'freedom' and 'honesty'.

Remember BENGHAZI!

Back off on those snippy comments regarding Obama's fundraisers.

He's running again in 2016...after he is forced to declare Martial Law.

I blame Bush.

I understand Obama will also be doing some fundraising in Los Angeles.

Isn't it odd how many of the crises erupting on Obama's watch, seem to do so while he is playing golf or fundraising?

Actually, I was wondering about the timing occuring so suddenly after the release of The Five.

Well, this isn't something the Obama regime decided to set loose as a shiny distraction.

They had nothing to do with the timing of this particular disaster, just the cause.

"If the U.S. is forced to evacuate, tell your children that this was when our nation officially lost the War on Terror."

Maybe the act, but in many ways we culturally lost the "War on Terror" years ago: we no longer question authority if the right excuse is given like "To protect children" or "to fight terror". Terror (not terrorists) wins: make people afraid enough and they'll give up liberty and rights.
