Are Marines deployed at the embassy in Karachi?  Or are we relying on Pakistani protection?

Pentagon spokesman report:

The Marines that arrived in the Yemeni capital Friday are members of a platoon from a Fleet Antiterrorism Security Team, a specially trained and configured group that makes short-notice deployments in response to terrorist threats and to reinforce security at U.S. embassies.

A similar team was dispatched to Tripoli, Libya, on Wednesday in response to the deadly consulate attack in Benghazi.

Pentagon press secretary George Little said no other such teams had been sent to Cairo or other Arab capitals.

In Pakistan, some Muslims held peaceful protests against the film, shouting slogans and carrying banners. Police in Islamabad set up barricades and razor wire to prevent protesters from getting to the diplomatic enclave, where the U.S. Embassy and many other foreign missions are located.
