US Evacuates Personnel From Embassy in Libya as Obama Plays Golf
Obama really has checked out, hasn’t he?
This is pretty serious news, via CNN…
The U.S. Embassy in Libya evacuated its personnel on Saturday because of heavy militia violence raging in the capital, Tripoli, the State Department said.
About 150 personnel, including 80 U.S. Marines, were evacuated early Saturday and were driven across the border into Tunisia, U.S. officials confirm to CNN.
U.S. officials stress operations have been “temporarily suspended” until “the security situation on the ground improves.” The embassy will continue to operate from other locations.
A senior State Department official said some of the staff will be sent to other U.S. embassies in the region and others will return to Washington.
Where’s President Obama? Playing golf, where else?
