U.S. counterterrorism operations ongoing in Yemen

President Barack Obama defended his counterterrorism strategy in tumultuous Yemen Sunday, saying efforts to root out a dangerous al-Qaida affiliate there would not be affected by the political vacuum in the country.

The U.S. campaign against al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula is heavily dependent on using drone strikes to take out terror targets. Obama has held up that approach as a model for the military mission against the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria, which relies on airstrikes instead of U.S. ground troops.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...political vacuum", my ASTROLABE!!!

Mr. President, the Houthi rebels have flipping taken over the country, and the President and Cabinet have resigned (if not fled, outright, from the country.)

IF your strategy had worked, sir, the rebels would not have taken over the country, period, end of discussion.

In the immortal words of my late maternal grandmother, "The horse is already out of the barn."

You policy for Yemen can only be described as another "epic fail" in foreign policy for you.

And I had to appreciate the delicious, bitter irony of timing here: this happened precisely on the day you made the SOTU speech.

Doing the same thing (like drone strikes) over and over again, in precisely the same way, yet expecting a different outcome is a classic psychological definition of insanity.

Sir, get a grip, get a clue, and would someone in this guy's inner circle please sit this man down, and have a chat about "reality" not being a fabrication of his imagination, but very, very real facts on the ground which, although unpleasant, are completely true.

The American public would be very grateful for that, if any of you have the "male attributes" to dare to do so.
