#1  There was no claim of responsibility, but Kurdish rebels and Islamic militants are active in Turkey.

Not to mention extreme nationalists and Kemal-type socialists, but those don't make for good press.

#2 Prelim ID of bomber has been released on updated news reports. Lebanese? This was a remarkably fast identification of a perpetrator. They must have had camera coverage of the outside perimeter of the US embassy. Even so - wonder how they ID'ed him so quickly?? It's almost like they had this person under surveillance or something.

#3 The way we fumbled the Bengazi fight tells a weakness that the enemy is about to exploit. I expect to see a lot more of this in the near future and some real fireworks next September.
