WASHINGTON - The US State Department on Friday moved to reduce its diplomatic presence at its consulate general in AOceander, Turkey, due to security threats, it said in a statement.

"The Consulate General in AOceander has been authorized to draw down its non-emergency staff and family members because of threats against US government facilities and personnel," the department said.

It also recommended "that US citizens defer non-essential travel to southeastern Turkey," the statement said.

Too many congresscritters think it is more important to save Obama's face, than to do the right thing. Obama has already lowered the prestige we once had in the world, and saving his mug will bring us down even further.  Bill O'Reilly and RINOS have a different take on it, or they are afraid to stand up to our leaderless leader. Catering to Obama is doing the worst damage to our reputation.

The entire world is more dangerous because of Barack Obama.
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!
