Yemen's president on Tuesday called in the U.S. ambassador and told him he would sign a deal to step down, a U.S. official said. The embattled leader, who has made that pledge several times before, spoke as violence shook his capital.
President Ali Abdullah Saleh informed Ambassador Gerald Feierstein of a new cease-fire, but clashes on the streets threw that into doubt. Activists said seven protesters were killed and 10 wounded.
It was the first meeting between Saleh and a U.S. ambassador since Saleh returned from Saudi Arabia last month, said U.S. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland. Saleh left Yemen after an attack on his compound in early June left him badly wounded.
Nine months of mass protests calling for his resignation have moved his powerful Arab neighbors, with U.S. backing, to propose a plan allowing Saleh to step down in exchange for immunity from prosecution. That reflected a reversal for the U.S., which up to then had backed Saleh as an ally in its fight against al-Qaida in Yemen.
Nuland said Saleh confirmed he would sign the Gulf Cooperation Council plan for him to step down a claim he has made several times this year but then backed down at the last minute, infuriating both opponents and former allies.
She also said that Saleh confirmed that a cease-fire had been arranged with the opposition demonstrators, as announced on Yemen's state news agency's website.

Protests in Kuwait today.
THESE 4 YEARS ARE GOING TO HAVE BEEN 100X WORSE THAN CARTER’S. LORD HELP US.
Saleh doesn’t want to end up sodomized by a crazed mob and shot in the head or in a cage in a kangaroo court
Watch out for Jordan’s King
Mo violence and islamists waaay too close to Jerusalem
Predictions of the false peace and deception brought by the antiChrist is no longer out of the realm, is it
Nevermind him, watch out for the Queen
He’s probably looking for asylum for he and his family.
She’s also a muderous bitch.
A lot of folks are saying that.
I for one don’t think we’ve even begun to see the real damage. Much of the new law goes into effect after 2012...
Another one may become a Shariah State
The one called 0bama is very evil. Something wicked this way comes.
I am so very, very confused by what these people are doing? They depose a dictator in favor of theocratic hell. Really?
And yet we have these fools in the US (OWS), that are no smarter, as they lift their hands and beg for their own chains.
Blasphemous names, the seven mountains (Egypt, Syria, Yemen, Tunisia,Libya,) that is 5 so far revealed.
10 They are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is (iran), the other has not yet come (Saudia Arabia?) (elections 2012?) ; but when he does come, he must remain for only a little while.(assassinated). 11 The beast who once was, and now is not, is an eighth king. (?) He belongs to the seven and is going to his destruction.
16 The beast and the ten horns you saw will hate the prostitute (America)....They will bring her to ruin and leave her naked; they will eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to accomplish his purpose by agreeing to hand over to the beast their royal authority, until Gods words are fulfilled. (the Arab Spring calls for democracy...and yet they hand their lives over to shariah).

Anyone not seeing we’re in for it is in denial or totally ignorant. Thanks, EBH.
0bama is totally evil.
Yep! Now "we" are allied with al-Qaida in Yemen and everywhere else thanks to Hussein and Hitlery.
And it all started with Carter.
Yemen's president on Tuesday called in the U.S. ambassador and told him he would sign a deal to step down...Wow, this will be bad news for Gaddafy when he hears about it. Oh wait...
