The U.S. Embassy will not be evacuated despite the fighting near the presidential palace. A cease fire has been negotiated and no imminent threat as been detected towards Americans inside the embassy. However, Americans in the capitol have been urged to leave the capitol on commercial jets for their own safety. This lurks for me as a "one bitten, twice shy" scenario. We did not evacuate an embassy quickly enough once and it was tragic and a red tape mess. Are we making a mistake here?
