The U.S. Embassy in Manila

The U.S. Embassy in Manila may have been the target of a simultaneous attack. (this is a rumor, NBC has stated that two men were found videotaping the embassy, and they were questioned, released, and then they fled to Thailand. Bomb-making materials were found in their home.)

According to local news, the men seen filming the Embassy were Omani, and the police questioned them prior to the Tuesday attack. Now, it turns out that one of their names is on the manifest of one of the hijacked planes.

I'm not sure what to make of that. Our news isn't saying anything about bomb-making materials.

Holy crap. I just checked the news again for more stuff, and it turns out a building just a block away from my office got an effing bomb threat.
