President Obama, back in September of 2014, boasted about the counter-terrorism “success story” of Yemen, and has since regretted those remarks.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest and new White House communications director Jen Psaki are struggling to maintain Obama’s narrative.
Yemen has watched the U.S. pull out of its embassy due to hostility in the area, prompting Megyn Kelly to grill Psaki on how she could still call Yemen a “success story” when their ayatollahs led chants of “death to America” for everyone to see.

After the Yemeni president evacuated by boat, Earnest faced grueling questions by ABC’s Jon Karl – who called it “astounding” that the administration would still consider it a success story – and Fox News’ Ed Henry.
“Why can’t you just say, “You know what, we were wrong. It is not a model of success,” Henry asked Earnest. “Why can’t you say, ‘He was wrong and we’re trying to fix it; we’re trying to figure it out?’ It just seems like we keep going around and around that it’s still a model when it’s not, right?”
Earnest was bombarded with tough questions the next day when he visited MSNBC’s Morning Joe, clearly not expecting actual questioning from the typically friendly and supportive left-leaning hosts.

It appears that it’s not just the right that is concerned and fed up with the Obama-given Yemen narrative — even the left wants to know the truth.
