Deserted US Embassy In Yemen Immediately Seized By Armed Rebels

.... And it's gone.

Moments after its US inhabitants leave the embassy in Yemen for one final time, it is now officially owned by the new, less than supported by the US, rebel regime.

  • ARMED HOUTHI REBELS SEIZE U.S. EMBASSY VEHICLES AFTER AMBASSADOR, DIPLOMATS LEAVE COUNTRY - LOCAL MEMBERS OF EMBASSY STAFF

And more from Reuters:

Armed Houthi rebels in the Yemeni capital Sanaa seized U.S. embassy vehicles after the ambassador  and diplomats left the country on Wednesday, local members of embassy staff told Reuters.

 

The employees said that more than 20 vehicles were taken by the fighters after the Americans departed from Sanaa's airport.  The United States, Britain and France have closed their embassies and evacuated staff as the security situation in Yemen has unravelled following the group's formal takeover of power last week.

We could make a token witty comment about how this entire episode is emblematic and symbolic of all US foreign policy in recent history, but at this point, what difference does it make?
