Sanaa, Yemen (CNN)The U.S. military is in the process of evacuating about 100 Special Operations forces members from the Al Anad airbase in Yemen due to that country's deteriorating security situation, sources in the region familiar with the situation told CNN.
Those being evacuated are the last American troops stationed in the Arab nation, which is home to al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the terrorist group also known as AQAP. The United States closed its embassy in Sanaa last month, after Houthi rebels took over the Yemeni capital. And hundreds of al Qaeda members escaped two Yemeni prisons Thursday and Friday, raising further security questions.
The US spends $250,000 a minuted on the war on terrorism in the Middle East alone. Money well spent...

Terrorist attacks did happen and the U.S. embassy was evacuated. Ive searched some Yemen english news sites and so far I haven't found any reports of Al Qaeda attacking an air base but that doesn't mean it's not true.
