The U.S. Embassy has followed suit:

Per Catherine Herridge – US Embassy in Cairo closed this morning “in response to unrest”

Hmmm … only yesterday, the Lightbringer was bragging to CBS’ Steve Kroft about his incredible “leadership” when it came to Egypt. Mayhaps his horn-tooting was a bit premature.

What happens when you give F-16 fighters to Egypt, America has to close its Cairo Embassy and civilians run for their lives.

Well, we’re nothing if not generous.
A week after we give Egypt 20 F~16’s and 200 Abrams tanks we shut down our embassy in Cairo, @barackobama what the hell is going on

What’s going on? Oh, you know. The usual:
Because of rioting, the American Embassy in Cairo is closed.Did White House find another youTube video or something? #TCOT

Attacks force US to close embassy in Cairo. Which video this time? Oh what difference does it make?

Indeed. Meanwhile, what does this say about Obama’s favorite gal pal?
The closing the our Cairo embassy highlights Hilary’s failure as Secretary of State. #tcot
