The foreign policy of President Barack Obama took a devastating blow on Saturday as news broke of the last U.S. troops fleeing Yemen as the terrorist group Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula attacked the city of al-Houta near their base.The BBC reported the troops were training the Yemen military to fight AQAP at al-Anad air baseWhile US troops were humiliated yet again under Obama, their commander-in-chief was goofing off.
Obama attended a NCAA women’s basketball tournament game at College Park, Maryland Saturday where his niece Leslie Robinson was serving as a benchwarmer for Princeton.
Before Obama headed out for the game, the news media broke reported on the evacuation of about 100 U.S. troops, including Special Forces, from Yemen.
Following the game, Obama went directly to Joint Base Andrews to play golf.
The actor Charlie Sheen ripped Obama this week for putting his obsession with the NCAA basketball tournament ahead of looking out for the country.
The U.S. Embassy in Yemen was abandoned last month as the Yemeni government collapsed in a civil war. U.S. Marines were ordered to disarm themselves and destroy their weapons before leaving the country, a decision that sparked outrage.
The evacuation of the U.S. troops took place on Friday, but the U.S. and international media completely missed on reporting it.
Apparently the Obama administration did not make an announcement, but a Yemeni on Twitter, Haykal Bafana, posted about it on Friday.
