The Washington Free Beacon has the story. Read it at the link to believe it:
US Gov't To Americans Trapped In Yemen: Call India
Somehow the Chinese, the Russians, the Canadians, the Indians, they're all able to get in there and get their people out. But for some reason we can't?
This was the biggest news to hit the wires yesterday and yet it barely caused a ripple. America has abandoned Americans trapped in Yemen.
If the American Government will no longer guarantee the safety and security of Americans abroad, what good is it?
Two months ago, after weeks of being aware such a situation might arise, our Marines and diplomatic personnel in Yemen had to leave Yemen. Their successful exit depended upon two things;
1) The rebels who had just seized control of the country being willing to LET them go, and
2) their being able to catch a commercial flight
I am not joking. I am not making that up. That. Actually. Happened.
The reason our Marines & diplomatic personnel were abandoned two months ago is the same reason these Americans still in Yemen are being abandoned now. Obama refuses to risk a situation in which the US military could end up in conflict with the Iranian-back Houthis now in control of Yemen. It's all about saving his precious nuclear deal with Iran.
Any situation that could derail the deal is to be avoided, even if it places American lives at risk. And don't kid yourself. Americans are in danger here. Every damn terrorist group in the region is very likely making a beeline for Yemen to see how many Americans they can grab.
Add to this the fact it's well known this administration made no real attempt to obtain the release of four Americans currently being held by Iran as part of this nuclear deal Obama's so keen to make.
This is a national disgrace. This is a dereliction of duty. Every American has a duty to speak up and demand this government do it's god-damned job.
