The times continue to get more interesting.

"The first signs something unusual may be happening at the Houston consulate emerged on Tuesday, when people overlooking the building's courtyard noticed several bins on fire.

Footage shows people throwing what appears to be paper into the bins. It is not known who they were. People were later filmed appearing to pour water on the bins."
I mean, when that's happening at a consulate or embassy, it's hard to interpret it as anything other than the burn barrels being used to destroy sensitive materials.

Both Beijing and Washington seem pretty eager to have outside threats to distract from internal failings. Hopefully it just remains at the level of angry posturing.
