Fortress America

Fortress America

The US Embassy, Grosvenor Square, London.

Whatever the justification for this, as an American, it's embarrassing.

About six weeks ago I was in London and happened to be staying in Grosvenor Square, at a hotel across the street from the embassy. I didn't realize it was the embassy at first; instead, I thought it was a building under construction.

When I realized it was the U.S. Embassy, I was incredibly sad. That our national site at the home of our strongest ally in the world is so threatened that it needs to be blocked off from the surrounding street...it's just wrong, and whatever got us to the point where that would be necessary is wrong too.
