Obama Success Story, Yemen, Now A No Go Zone For Americans

yemen2-10-15

Seriously – it was only last Fall that this president was citing Yeman as a model of success.

On September 10, 2014, the White House released a couple of excerpts from Obama’s address to the nation on his strategy to combat terrorism abroad:

“But I want the American people to understand how this effort will be different from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It will not involve American combat troops fighting on foreign soil. This counter-terrorism campaign will be waged through a steady, relentless effort to take out ISIL wherever they exist using our air power and our support for partner forces on the ground. This strategy of taking out terrorists who threaten us, while supporting partners on the front lines, is one that we have successfully pursued in Yemen and Somalia for years.”

Today, via Gateway Pundit, the US Closed its Embassy in Yemen – Suspending ALL OPERATIONS

The US Embassy in Sanaa, Yemen released an emergency message in January warning ALL US CITIZENS to “depart immediately.” The embassy went on to say US citizens are responsible for making their own travel arrangements.

Has anyone checked on Somalia lately?
