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

#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.
