I hate to tell you this, but we are rotating home in 3 to 10 days. Our orders are very specific, we are not to aid any US citizen unless our own lives are in immediate danger by not doing so. That is about as likely as a meteor strike on Baghdad and gives almost no room to "creatively interpret" orders.

Someone up top is incredibly pissed off with Obama, or Kerry, or Hagel, or any of the others playing toy soldiers with us. Second bleep time in under a year that that has happened, and they have pulled the plug.
