The fighting broke out around 2 p.m. in the neighborhood of Wazir Akbar Khan, as traffic backed up near the diplomatic enclave and police and private security guards gathered on the streets. The U.S., British, German and Japanese embassies all came under fire. Across the city, armed men attacked the Afghan Parliament while it was in session. Both Afghan security forces and lawmakers took up arms to return fire from the roof, driving off the attack.Imagine McCain, Kerry, and Schwarzenegger picking up weapons and defending Capitol Hill.
