U.S. told Egypt it must rescue Israeli embassy workers or suffer ‘consequences,’ sources say


“There’s no time to waste,” Panetta reportedly told Tantawi in the 1 A.M. call, warning of a tragic outcome that “would have very severe consequences.”Officials involved in attempt to resolve mob attack on       Israeli embassy in Cairo say U.S. Secretary of Defense Panetta managed to speak with head of Egypt’s ruling military only after 2 hours of repeated calling.
