It was only about half a year ago that Obama famously – well, “famous” other than the fact that the mainstream media is doing pretty much everything they can on their end to keep you from hearing about it now – said the following:
Not that long ago, Yemen was being painted in a different light. Flash back to the heady days of September 2014 (four months ago), and the war on terror in Yemen was being touted as a “success” in speeches by President Obama. Talking about the threat posed by the Islamic State, Obama pointed toward Yemen and Somalia as possible examples:
This counterterrorism campaign will be waged through a steady, relentless effort to take out [the Islamic State] 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.
How’s that Obama strategy working for you, soon-to-be-part-of the Islamic State’s Caliphate-world???
This is, of course, the same Obama who amazingly called Islamic State a “JayVee team” even as it was overthrowing Iraqi cities on the way to establishing the first true terrorist caliphate in the history of the world before Obama’s very eyes. And then infamously lied about what he said after he said it.
What are the actual fruits of Obama’s strategy?
U.S. forces leave Yemen amid concerns it is safe haven for terror groups
All U.S. personnel leave Yemen as country descends into lawlessness

All remaining U.S. government personnel withdrew from Yemen over the weekend as fighting erupted near the last safe haven for American special forces there and an Iran-backed militia took control of key locations in the country’s third-largest city..
About 100 American special operations troops evacuated Al Anad airbase in the southern part of Yemen on Saturday, as Al Qaeda militants fought house-to-house in a nearby town. The withdrawal comes a month after the U.S. embassy in the capital of Sana was vacated, after months of Shiite rebels clashing with government forces there.
“Due to the deteriorating security situation in Yemen, the U.S. government has temporarily relocated its remaining personnel out of Yemen,” State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke said in a statement.
The U.S. departure from Yemen as it further descends into chaos is likely to hobble the American counterterrorism campaign against two potent extremist groups, the Islamic State and Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. The Islamic State militants who control large swaths of Iraq and Syria are extending their reach into both North Africa and Yemen, where intelligence officials are concerned they can take advantage of the lawlessness to expand their influence and recruit fighters, as they have elsewhere. And AQAP, the most resourceful and dogged of Al Qaeda’s affiliates, has repeatedly used Yemen to plot and stage attacks against the West.
This is exactly what I’ve repeatedly pointed out was the result of the Clinton years: America left weak and blind and rightly viewed as vulnerable to attack because of the moral stupidity of Democrats.
The world just keeps getting uglier and uglier under this treasonous emperor thug Obama and his policies and strategies. But don’t you worry, because the world, the flesh and the devil have teamed up with Obama to keep as many people ignorant of that fact as possible.
This continues the pattern of Obama and his administration ignoring and denying the facts on the ground. This continues what Obama did when he pulled out of Iraq and we lost all intelligence to know what was going on in that country and all power to affect any changes. It continues what Obama has announced he still plans to do when he does the exact same thing in Afghanistan that he’s done to make everything he’s touched toxic to America and its vital national security interests.
I’m not alleging Obama is incompetent, although that is your ONLY POSSIBLE remaining option for what is happening. I am saying that this is EXACTLY what Obama has been intelligently building toward. Barack Obama is a truly capable and truly evil man who with the incredibly wicked and cynical Democrat Party set out to destroy America and is well on the way to their real “Cloward and Piven” strategy.
What is Obama’s strategy? It now stands openly revealed according to Obama’s own words describing Yemen: to allow the world to metastasize into a safe haven for terrorism and allow terrorist armies to gain strength and build momentum all around us even as Obama so weakens America both militarily and morally that by the time the American people finally awaken to their sobering senses they will realize too late that they have been led by the nose and duped by lies. That is his strategy.
Obama’s reverend for 23 years nailed it: “God damn America.” Fools voted for it and America will die a fool’s miserable death as a consequence.
