Tag Archives: attack on yemeni embassy

And just like that …

… terrorism could come back to the forefront on the campaign trail.  There’s been another attack on the US Embassy in Yemen.  While no Americans were injured, sixteen people in total, including the attackers, were killed.  A group by the name of Islamic Jihad has claimed responsibility. 

We’ll see if this alters the landscape on the trail today, as this is the perfect opportunity for John McCain to, once again, start talking about the military and for idiots to begin circulating anew those Obama-is-Muslim rumors.  For his part, Obama can emphasize how the Bush administration’s war has inflamed the rest of the Islamic world and misdirected our efforts in stopping terrorism.  Of course, nobody could mention or do any of this.  We’ll see.
