Why don’t embassies have panic rooms?
Here’s something I was thinking about last night after I woke up and was waiting for a hot flash to pass. You know that Jodi Foster movie called “Panic Room”? It is a pretty boring ‘thriller’ if you ask me, but a lot of wealthy and even some not so wealthy folks have panic rooms installed in their homes in the event of a home invasion. Lars Vilks, for instance, had one installed in his house following significant death threats and it is what saved him from the Jihadi lunatic intent on killing him and his little grand-daughter.
Panic rooms have their own, separate air systems. They are essentially small bomb-proof, gunfire-proof, fire-proof, rooms with full video surveillance of the surrounding area from inside and separate lines to contact the outside world. If wealthy people living in the hills surrounding L.A. have these almost as a matter of course, why the heck aren’t embassies, particularly in dangerous and volatile areas but really all embassies because you just never know today with sleeper Jihadi cells in the most innocuous of places, equipped with them as a matter of routine?
