41. The right to asylum is conferred under the UN Convention on the Status of Refugees. No distinction

in the '51 Convention and '67 Protocols between the two for a grant of asylum by a signatory state to a person with "a well-founded fear of persecution." Each state is left to its own administrative methods for granting asylum. All states consider their embassies to be their sovereign territory, and it's up to each to decide whether to grant refugee status at an embassy.

The "distinction" that the State Dept is trying to draw is just more obfuscation.
