U.S. Embassy in Yemen Attacked, Not Because of a Video This Time
More jihadi attacks on the U.S., this time in Yemen. Reuters reports, “An al Qaeda splinter group said it launched a rocket toward the U.S. embassy in Sanaa on Saturday, wounding several guards, to retaliate for a purported U.S. drone strike in a northern province of Yemen the day before.” At least it wasn’t a YouTube video to blame. It’s not just the U.S. embassy that’s in trouble, either – it’s the entire government of Yemen. “Sanaa is already in turmoil after Shi'ite Muslim rebels seized control of much of the capital last week, hours before the accord was signed with other political parties providing for the creation of a new government.” Remember just a couple of weeks ago when Barack Obama said his strategy for airstrikes against ISIL would follow the model “successfully pursued in Yemen”? Good times.
