    Egyptian demonstrators climbed the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo today and pulled down the American flag to protest a film they say is insulting to the prophet Mohammad.

    Update at 2:07 p.m. ET: CNN reports that U.S. security guards fired a volley of warning shots as the crowd gathered outside the embassy walls.

    CNN adds that the embassy had been expecting a demonstration and cleared all diplomatic personnel earlier from the facility.

    Reuters reports that protesters tried to raise a black flag carrying the slogan: "There is no god but Allah and Mohammad is his messenger."

    The news agency says about 2,000 protesters have gathered outside the embassy and about 20 have scaled the walls.

    Radical Islam is beginning to make it's move in the ME by attacking our embassies and killing or citizens. They sense weakness in our government right now and know that we won't move against them. Meanwhile our biggest ally in the region is given the brush off because the President thinks it's more important to appear on Letterman.

    It's no accident the Egypt and Libya incidents happened on 9/11. tx you're absolutely right in your assessment. Hurry up November.
    Good men sleep peaceably in their beds at night because
    rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
