State Department claims they’re not “being run out of town” in the Middle East

After the U.S. withdrew personnel from their embassy in Yemen, it marked┬áthe third embassy in the Arab Spring countries that the U.S. has shut down in recent years. However, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said that the U.S. is not “being run out of town [1]” and said other Western countries have also done likewise. Yet, she believed it was not a result of Obama’s foreign policy (go figure).
