Nothing Says “Confidence” and “Restored Our Place in the World”

US diplomats in Beirut burning classified material

WASHINGTON (AP) — Diplomats at the U.S. Embassy in Beirut have started to destroy classified material as a security precaution amid anti-American protests in Lebanon and elsewhere in the Middle East and North Africa.

A State Department status report obtained Monday by The Associated Press said the Beirut embassy had “reviewed its emergency procedures and is beginning to destroy classified holdings.” It also said that local Lebanese employees were sent home early due to protests by the militant Shiite group Hezbollah over an anti-Muslim film produced in the U.S.

Oh, and shoot! There we go with the “film” thing again.

Glad to see the AP can stick to the meme.

    At least they are not shredding them. Whole lotta good that did us in Tehran in 1979. Can’t weave ashes.
