Gunmen kill U.S. embassy employee in Yemen | Reuters

Please notice who the head of the security team was. Was he a Yemeni? If so, why are we “protecting” our diplomats with potential enemies? (as in Afghanistan) I am sorry this man has lost his life, but I see this as a much larger issue with this administration and its attempt to somehow cover up the fact that we actually have enenies! If we cannot use our own people for security in these countries, then do not open embassies. Obama is creating more and more al Qaeda with his drone attacks and ignoring the ramifications.

The attackers on a motorcycle opened fire on a car carrying Qassem Aqlan – who headed an embassy security team – in the center of Yemen’s capital, the source told Reuters.
“This (assassination) operation has the fingerprints of al Qaeda which carried out similar operations before,” said the source who asked not to be named.
