  • President Obama's Strategy

    The President's speech last September:

    This counterterrorism campaign will be waged through a steady, relentless effort to take out ISIL wherever they exist, using our air power and our support for partner forces on the ground. This strategy of taking out terrorists who threaten us, while supporting partners on the front lines, is one that we have successfully pursued in Yemen and Somalia for years. And it is consistent with the approach I outlined earlier this year: to use force against anyone who threatens America’s core interests, but to mobilize partners wherever possible to address broader challenges to international order.

    Five months later, we tuck tail and run....

    Yemen rebels seized U.S. Embassy vehicles in the capital of Sanaa on Wednesday as diplomats fled the country and several foreign embassies closed amid deteriorating security conditions.

    More than 25 vehicles were taken by Houthi rebels after Americans departed the city's airport, airport officials told the Associated Press.
    The Marine Corps said security personnel destroyed their personal weapons before boarding a commercial flight out of Yemen.

    They destroyed heavier weapons, such as machine guns, before departing the shuttered U.S. Embassy in an "orderly" evacuation, said Col. Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman. He said "several" vehicles were left behind.

    We had forces ready to do a NEO.

    Two amphibious ships moved into the Red Sea on Wednesday to be ready should U.S. officials order an evacuation in Yemen, a Navy official confirmed to Navy Times, as clashes intensify in the capital.

    The amphibious assault ship Iwo Jima and dock landing ship Fort McHenry, with embarked troops from the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, have not been tasked, but could aid in the event of an evacuation of the U.S. embassy in Sanaa, Navy spokeswoman Lt. Cmdr. Sarah Flaherty said.

    "Iwo Jima and Fort McHenry are there as part of normal operations," Flaherty said. "If there were an evacuation, that would be an option, that those two ships are there with the Marines and the MEU."

        The troops aren't the only ones paying the price....

          "Obama" and "strategy" do not belong in the same sentence, let alone in the same White House.

            Look at it this way- it could be worse. Could have been another Benghazi. He's actually improving...

                Yemen reminds me of what happened in Saigon the day North Vietnam invaded the city with the exception that the Marines took their personnel weapons with them.

                  "Improving"? I would hate to see your definition of "failure".

                      Obama has a strategy? I thought this might be about his golf game.

                        Here I thought Obama's strategy was to make himself out to be the greatest President in history and a paragon of intellect. He doesn't give a $h!+ about America or anybody else. Isn't it obvious?

                            Obama has no strategy....The White House strategy comes from these two morons.
