US Embassy in Yemen fails to get memo about "human caused disasters", uses politically incorrect "T" word

I guess news travels slow in Yemen

January 03, 2010

The U.S. Embassy in Sana’a is closed today, January 3, 2010, in response to ongoing threats by Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) to attack American interests in Yemen.

On December 31, the U.S. Embassy sent a warden message to Americans citizens in Yemen to remind them of the continuing threat of terrorist actions and violence against American citizens and interests throughout the world. The U.S. Embassy reminds U.S. citizens to maintain a high level of vigilance and to practice enhanced security awareness.

I wonder what the private conversations of State Dept employees in places like Yemen are like when they hear the insane clown posse in Washington using terms like "human caused disaster"? Once can only speculate, but I'm guessing they're not too amused.
