And Jihad Friday escalates further. This is apparently the same southern Afghanistan base where Prince Harry is stationed.

Two Americans have reportedly been killed or wounded:

The attack is apparently still ongoing:

AP reports that 2 Marines were killed:

Early reports call the assault “complex” and indicate the attackers were armed with mortars and rocket-propelled grenade launchers.

It’s possible that the attack is over already. News sources say that the attack was made on Camp Leatherneck, the American side of the base.

Family members and friends send their thoughts and prayers as they await more information.

    I feel like America has been abandoned. Where is the president? Michelle is prancing around on Dr.Oz while Americans are being killed. Obama can’t even speak to the American people. If the press tries to ask him questions he turns his back and walks away. Are they still blaming a film? This is insanity.

      The media will only ask him what he’s wearing to his next fundraiser. The media is in the tank for this mistake, correction coming in November unless after a clear cut win by Romney is overturned by some activist judge.

        Believe it or not I usually dismiss some of the more alarmist fringe, but even I’m starting to worry about this nut. I’ve said for a while, half jokingly, that next Jan. there’s going to be a Secret Service extraction squad pulling him out of the basement bunker. I really wonder just how desperate he might get. I take some encouragement though that he’s been spotted house hunting in Oahu; he has seen the writing on the wall.

        • pcimarron

          I hope that’s true, I’m willing to help him find the perfect house, a deserted island would be ideal

          I’d have no problem if Mitt let him stay in the bunker, as long as he’s never allowed out again.

            He could be put in timeout with Biden to think about what he’s done.

        • BeautifulAmerica

          Wishful thinking. He’s going to GITMO as an enemy of the USA.

    This is so sad. I am really scared for our wonderful country. This is on the President. Period. I am so sick of his excuses. If he is re-elected, we are screwed. God bless our men and women overseas and here in the U.S. I appreciate you all and what you represent, whether you are in our embassies or in our armed forces.

    • $92510698

      I agree with you completely.

  • JET

    How many more Americans will die before the President stops his campaigning and addresses the public and what will he do?

    • http://www.facebook.com/todd.summers.7 Todd Summers

      He will continue to apologize for offending someone.

    • Garth Haycock

      Don’t hold your breath. Obama only cares about his reelection. The entire country could burn to the ground and as long as he was reelected, he’d be fine with it.

      • Mom for Mitt

        Obama only cares about himself… reelection is a side effect.

    • Mom for Mitt

      Campaigning is more important than protecting the citizens of this country at home & abroad. What better way to get all of their votes!

  • Lynne Zimmermann

    time to yank all funding from these savage Muslim,murderers, pull our funding from UN and send that den of thieves, spies and vipers elsewhere and escrow all money held in the USA by these murdering nations. Let them kill each other and we should be bombing them into bigger 13th century sand pits than they are now

      So, turn the Arab Spring into a Nuclear Winter… Maybe the environmentalists will quit complaining about global warming too! Win-win! 😀

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      I agree. If we never went over there in the first place, they probably wold have eradicated themselves by now. They may have been around for a thousand years, but it’s obvious they’ve finally discovered fire…

      • Mom for Mitt

        They’re still throwing stones over there! What’s with that? They obviously have the capability to construct bombs but rocks seem to be the weapon of choice! Even the police “protecting” the embassies were throwing rocks back. Really?

    This is so sad that we have a president who refuses to lead while Americans are being killed. I miss Bush. Say what you will about him, but he would have harsh words and not be off campaigning and partying. How could anyone vote for Obama still?

    • Disgusted American

      Thats the difference betwrrn a Real President and a self proclaimed messiah.

    Our President has no idea what to do right now. Moving two destroyers closer to the rebellions would not make me feel safe if I were on the ground surrounded by thousands of people in a murderous state of mind.
    All he can do is to continue campaigning and partying until someone in the liberal party comes up with an acceptable plan for handling this.
    Only one other president in our history has not known what to do when we are attacked… Jimmy Carter.
    I’m not saying we should nuke or destroy but the one thing I do know is that we need to protect those in harms way… and yes, open fire if we need to in order to get them to safety.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      I don’t understand the Destroyers myself. The first move should have been to park a Carrier in the southern Med and start some sorties over our embassies. We should also be moving an Amphib Carrier into place for personnel extraction from the embassies. Once our folks are out, we can level the buildings we leave behind and start using the desert countries as a large target range.

    I hate to say this because I used to be one, but DoState, DoD, and the USMC senior leadership have apparently learned very little in the past 30 years when 241 died in Beirut because of criminally idiotic rules of engagement.
