The State Department on Tuesday ordered most embassy personnel out of Yemen and urged all U.S. citizens currently in that country to leave over the Al Qaeda threat that triggered the shutdown of 19 American diplomatic posts this week.
The U.S. Air Force already has flown State Department personnel out of the capital of Sanaa as part of the broad evacuation effort.
"The U.S. Department of Defense continues to have personnel on the ground in Yemen to support the U.S. State Department and monitor the security situation," Pentagon spokesman George Little said.
The rapid-fire developments on Tuesday came as two drone strikes killed four suspected Al Qaeda militants in the Yemeni province of Mareb, an Al Qaeda stronghold. The sources said that one strike hit a car with four militants inside, while the other hit a militant hideout. There have been six drone strikes in Yemen in the past six days, Fox News has learned.
The Obama administration has offered few specifics on the nature of the threat, but repeatedly has ...

Gee, I wonder if Obama is resting well, maybe he should take some time off and get some golfing in, his nerves must be frazzled... here Mr. Prezident, take 10 mil and go relax somewhere posh...
Welll .. ok ... but don’t touch my computer ... alright ?
With all the upheaval in the ME, I wonder if AQ has possession of WMDs?
No one to report those AK's are damned shiney spanking new.
Maybe the USSA should take over that country and turn it into a big military base.
But, but, but...GM is dead and OBL is alive or wait, I mean GM is alive and OBL is dead and Al Qaeda is on the run and this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow, and our planet began to heal.
Hahahaha, I can’t even post that anymore without laughing my head off...my God King O is so full of BS!!!
To quote Bill Kristol “Four years ago President Obama gave a much heralded speech as outreach to the Muslim world,” Kristol said during a panel discussion. “And now, four years later we are closing embassies throughout the Muslim world. A year ago, the president said al-Qaida is on the run. And now we seem to be on the run.”
And there it is — “And now we seem to be on the run.”
Just as he wanted it! America, fundamentally transformed from a land of warriors to wusses...why to go barrack...what a legacy.
run for your lives
My God in Heaven this folking administration is depraved
Nothing could make us look more ridiculous in the eyes of satan than cutting and running. You are to stand in the face of adversity
WAG THE DOG!!!!
Funny, the IRS, Benghazi, NSA, etc. scandals are now off the front page. I guess Zimmermann and Bowden were place holders until this fustercluck could be carried out.
Vegas odds on what will get bombed?
1-1 day care center
2-1 milk production plant
8-1 aspirin factory
10-1 ambassadors residence
Is this an “official” admission that the folks in the muzzie world do NOT really, really like us? Maybe he should give another speech over there to remind them.
This is just as he wishes it to be...to eliminate the infidel from the lands of the Muslims...just lie Osama Bin Laden demanded concerning Saudi Arabia years ago, and to get the Russians out of Afghanistan.
We have pulled out so much from the boundaries of the as yet undeclared Caliphate that the Muslim world should be very excited at the progress they are making.
They have also used the circumstance to warn the leaders of AQ that they are being monitored, and they are getting the bonus of getting the other scandals off the front page for Obama.
Its a win win! Unless you are one of the people that will die as a result...
This sums up the Obama years thus far.
I would also add that the Trojan rabbit plan could not be carried out because Arthur’s Knights did not remain INSIDE the rabbit and then suprise the silly French.
This is very similar to Obama’s military directives...although POTUS resembles Sir Robin more than any other Knight, certainly not Arthur, King of the Britons.
Is there another cesspool as nuke-worthy than Yeman? [Why did I ask such a rhetorical question?] Yes! The whole muslim world.
We should have bombed Yemen for what they did to the USS Cole.
