You know, it’s hard to win a war, or even a battle, against any enemy when your Commander at the highest level avows more allegiance to that enemy than they do to you, the soldiers fighting the war. As if our Commander in Chief, Barrack Hussein Obama, could not prove where his true allegiance lies any more than he already has, he’s gone a bit farther in doing so, by ordering troops stationed in Yemen, about to engage with Al Qaeda forces who have been tearing their way through the region, raping, killing, and pillaging, to hold fire and actually retreat to a secret location. Here’s the story from the Associated Free Press:
Aden (AFP) – US military personnel stationed at Al-Anad airbase in southern Yemen have been evacuated over security concerns, a Yemeni military source said on Saturday amid fighting involving Al-Qaeda militants nearby.
The troops left late Friday for an “unknown destination”, the military source at the Yemeni base in Lahj province told AFP.
Members of Yemen’s anti-terror units, which are trained by US forces and based at Al-Anad, have also been evacuated, the source added.
At least 29 people were killed on Friday in clashes between Yemeni security forces and gunmen who included both Al-Qaeda members and separatists, in Lahj.
Yemen has acknowledged that American personnel gathering intelligence for drone strikes on Al-Qaeda are deployed at Al-Anad.
Yemen is a key US ally, allowing it to wage a long-standing drone war on its territory against Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, considered by Washington to be the most dangerous affiliate of the global jihadist organisation.
