The U.S. supported government is now gone...creating a greater power vacuum for AQ to spread it's influence.
Didn't Obama just call Yemen a 'success story' against terrorism?


SANAA, Yemen (AP) -- The Yemeni government submitted its resignation on Thursday amid a heated standoff between powerful Shiite rebels who control the capital and the embattled US-backed president, who has been held "captive" in his house for the past two days.

Prime Minister Khaled Bahah's resignation came as the U.N. envoy to the Arab world's poorest country met with representatives from the Shiite rebels, known as Houthis and other political factions to try to implement a deal reached Wednesday to end the crisis.

Under the agreement -- struck while the rebels confined Hadi in his private home -- the group's militias were to withdraw from the presidential palace and key areas of the capital they have overrun in recent days in return for political concessions.

Don't believe it guys, he'll just have you rounded up and executed now. You had him, and you let him go.

Noble gesture, but you aren't dealing with him, he's just a puppet of the US.
