US, Britain Withdraw Last Personnel Including Special Forces Out of Obama Success Story Yemen, Because It's Such a Success People are Murdering Each Other With Fire

You can't spell "Obama success story" without "succ."

Britain reportedly has withdrawn its remaining special forces from Yemen, days after a similar U.S. move, in response to the worsening security that the U.N. envoy for Yemen described as the "edge of civil war."

The reported development comes as Yemeni Foreign Minister Riyadh Yaseen called on his Arab neighbors to intervene militarily to stop the inroads made by Shiite Houthi fighters in the predominantly Sunni Muslim country.

Reuters, quoting a person familiar with the matter, reported on the U.K.'s withdrawal of its special forces. Britain withdrew staff from its embassy in Sanaa last month and suspended operations because of the deteriorating security situation there.

The U.S. Embassy suspended operations last month for the same reasons, and Saturday the State Department said "the U.S. Government has temporarily relocated its remaining personnel out of Yemen." The Associated Press reported over the weekend that U.S. military forces, including Special Forces commandos, evacuated the Al Anad air base near the southern city of al-Houta, which was seized by al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.

By the way, if this were happening under Bush, the fact that the Administration had declared Yemen a "success story" just a year and change ago would be the second sentence in every story.
As this is unraveling under the Idiot Prince, the media is only slightly interested in such irony.

But I shouldn't claim they're not interested at all. In fact, one reporter asked Josh Earnest if the President stood by his claim that Yemen was a "success story" and could serve as a "template" for counter-terrorism operations.

As the nation literally burns -- literally, shit's on fire everywhere -- Josh Earnest incredibly claims that statement is still Perfectly Correct.


Yemen is now in such a state that it's not even considered safe for our SEALs and Delta Force fighters, but hey, It's Obama's Kind of Success Story.

Obama Success Level: Critical.
