If the media was actually paying attention to this,

there'd be hell to pay.
The State Department suspended embassy operations back on Feb. 11. On April 1, the embassy sent a message to U.S. citizens in Yemen indicating there were “no plans for a U.S. government-sponsored evacuation of U.S. citizens at this time” and encouraging U.S. citizens “to monitor the news and seek available departure options from Yemen, via air, land, or sea.”
The travel warning for Yemen was updated on April 3. “We encourage all U.S. citizens to shelter in a secure location until they are able to depart safely. U.S. citizens wishing to depart should do so via commercial transportation options when they become available.”
An emergency message sent to citizens on Sunday said they “may be able to leave Yemen from either Aden or Mokha and cross into Djibouti by boat.”
Just go read it all.  The level of stupid and incompetent is amazing.  Smart Diplomacy, no doubt.

A federal judge has issued a scathing rebuke to lawyers for the Obama administration in a case involving the president's unilateral immigration action. In an order issued Tuesday night, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen, who had put a temporary hold on the action, not only refused to lift the hold — he also came very near to accusing administration lawyers of flat-out lying to him.
Assuming this judge might actually care about the law and ethics, if it can be shown they did lie, I think that's 'Recommend they be disbarred' territory, possibly perjury charges as well.  Now THAT would send a message.

Sen. Harry Reid: lying sack of shit.  Who's STILL demanding Romney prove something.

Here you've got cops behaving badly, Child 'Protective' Services being the assholes they tend to be, and quite possibly both shoving into this home without a warrant:
“He said, ‘We’re here to remove your son,’” Robinson said. “I said, ‘Nobody is touching my kid without a court order or a warrant.’”
According to the 38-year-old mother, officers failed to show her the documents and forced themselves into her home.
Aside from assaulting a pregnant woman, did these assholes have a warrant?  If so, did they show it?  If no on the first, that's a flat criminal action, and they should be prosecuted for it.
