Correct--however the ability to have security in the form of our Marines as in most Countries, was denied here, as result of the failed leadership of the State Dept. Requests for security were ignored and the lack on funds blamed for the reason. Yet the various administrations people blew millions having parties during this same time period. More excuses for their failed leadership.<quoted text>
Spoken like a true uneducated teabagger.
Contrary to popular belief, diplomatic missions do not enjoy full extraterritorial status and are not sovereign territory of the represented state. Rather, the premises of diplomatic missions remain under the jurisdiction of the host state while being afforded special privileges (such as immunity from most local laws) by the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations. Diplomats themselves still retain full diplomatic immunity, and (as an adherent to the Vienna Convention) the host country may not enter the premises of the mission without permission of the represented country. The term "extraterritoriality " is often applied to diplomatic missions, but only in this broader sense.
Similar as the failed excuses of Ms. Rice sent to lie about some video as the cause for the uprising of the angry. This even angered the local Country leaders. Nothing but a total disaster of our failed leadership!
