2 Dead in US Embassy Terrorist Attack

A suicide bomber detonated an explosive device on the outside perimeter of the U.S. Embassy in the Turkish capital Friday, officials said, in a terrorist attack believed to be the work of either Al Qaeda or a proxy for Iran. According to U.S. military sources, a Turkish national was killed in the attack in Ankara -- the bomber is also thought to be dead. All U.S. staff are safe at this time, though the U.S. consulate in Turkey reportedly has advised Americans in the country against visiting U.S. missions for the time being.

    Kudos to the Turkish security at the gate who prevented the bomber from entering the compound. Turks are the unsung hero allies of the US through all these years.
