US "Loses" $500 Million In Weapons Given To Yemen, Now In Al-Qaeda Hands

Nobody could have possibly foreseen that yet another US foreign diplomacy "success story" would turn out to be an epic disaster. Well, nobody, except for those who accurately predict that every US intervention abroad is now a staggering fiasco (for everyone involved except the US military-industrial complex of course). As for Yemen, the outcome was clear long ago:
And, naturally, after noting that "the employees said that more than 20 vehicles were taken by the fighters after the Americans departed from Sanaa's airport" we asked how long until we have a "tabulation of losses to US taxpayers, just like the great Islamic State 'robbery' of hundreds of millions in US military equipment in Iraq?" That, of course, was another epic US intervention success story.

  1. I think it is a very clever way for Obama to arm his fellow mujahadeens. After all, why else would Kerry/State Dept. traitors give the Marines explicit orders to disarm before they left Yemen? Geez, maybe someone would have tried to prevent AlQaida/Whoevuh from confiscating of all this "hardware." Didn't the same thing happen in Syria and Iraq?
