The Associated Press: Bush: ‘We are at war with extremists’

President Bush said Wednesday that the attack on the U.S. embassy in the capital of Yemen was a reminder that the United States remains “at war” with ideological extremists.

Attackers armed with automatic weapons, rocket-propelled grenades and at least one suicide car bomb assaulted the U.S. embassy. Sixteen people were killed, including six assailants, officials said.
