Obama Success Story: Yemeni President Resigns After Terrorists Seize His Palace

In September 2014, Obama bragged that Yemen was a foreign policy success story.

On Tuesday Houthi rebels seized the Presidential palace in Sanaa, Yemen after a brief gun battle.

Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu resigned today after being held captive by Shiite Houthi rebels earlier this week.
Reuters reported:

Yemeni President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi resigned on Thursday, a government source said.

Just before, Prime Minister Khaled Baha offered his government’s resignation to Hadi, saying it did not want to be dragged into “an unconstructive political maze”.

This was an apparent reference to a stand-off between Hadi and Yemen’s powerful Houthi movement.
