Jihad Watch note who is backing the rebel takeover in Yemen:
The Prez was gonna say something like this tonight: “…while supporting partners on the front lines, is one that we have successfully pursued in Yemen and Somalia for years.”: AND THIS via The Weekly Standard:
….So our strategy in Iraq and Syria is going to replicate “one that we have successfully pursued in Yemen and Somalia for years”? According to the president, Yemen and Somalia are examples of success? I’m no expert on either place, but I have the impression both are in pretty bad shape, have probably been getting worse, and that our government is pretty worried about the export of terrorism near and far from both….
And Gateway Pundit notes the Prez’s 2014 statements:
In September 2014, Obama bragged that Yemen was a foreign policy success story. On Tuesday Houthi rebels seized the Presidential palace in Sanaa, Yemen after a brief gun battle.
