Suicide blast at U.S. embassy in Turkey

Another U.S. embassy is attacked, and this time, the White House immediately labeled it an act of terror.

"A suicide bombing in the perimeter of an embassy is by definition an act of terror." Jay Carney, White House Press Secretary said, "It is a terrorist attack. However, we do not know at this point who is responsible for the motivations behind the attack. The attack itself was clearly an act of terror."
