US Embassy Damascus Closes

leave a comment »

The US Embassy in Damascus, Syria has closed due to the ongoing violence in Syria.  The decision to close an embassy is not taken lightly, but thankfully employees working in Embassy Damascus had several months to prepare for the event.  Contrast that to the few weeks Embassy Tripoli had to evacuate entirely before shutting down.
