GOP Senators Blame Obama for Chaos in Yemen

Republican critics of President Obama’s foreign policy are pointing to the unrest in Yemen as further evidence that a different approach is needed, The Huffington Post reported.

Addressing the president, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham asked during a Thursday news conference: “Have you not learned anything? Have you not learned anything at all from the failure of your policies?” He charged that the administration is “putting our nation at risk, and the region is on fire. This needs to stop."

HuffPost noted that the chaos in Yemen has reached new levels, with President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi being forced to flee the country Wednesday. He is closely allied with the United States, which has infuriated many of the country’s residents.

The Houthi movement took over the capital of Sanaa in September. This week, 10 Arab nations started bombing the city in an attempt to force out the rebels.

Two other outspoken opponents of the administration’s foreign policy, Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, joined Graham at the news conference. All three senators expressed their support for the Saudi-led coalition fighting the Houthis.
