Baghdad Museum Threatened Again?

One of many museums in Iraq
As ISIS/ISIL militia consolidate their hold over the northeast of Iraq and the newspapers publish shocking stories to whip up public enthusiasm for more military jaunts in the region just a decade after Bush's infamous "mission accomplished" speech, the US embassy in Baghdad is moving some of its personnel out. And what about Baghdad Museum? Are there emergency measures in place this time to protect the collection and documentation? Just what do they intend to do to keep them safe if ISIL overtake the city?
