  •  The reason our embassies are vulnerable: Reagan (3+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    The sole instance when terrorists seized a US Embassy and did not suffer lethal consequences was under Reagan in Iran, 1981.

    After seizing and occupying our embassy for over 400 days, our hostages were finally released an hour after Reagan was sworn in to office.

    The world held its breath. Would the tough talking new President strike back at the rogue regime?

    He sent them a cake.
