The apparent al Qaeda attack on our embassy in Yemen is part of a series of attacks that I don't remember getting much attention.
The State Department ordered the departure of all non-emergency American staff from the embassy, along with their family members, in April, after attacks against the embassy and a residential compound. That order was lifted last month.What's that again about no terrorism since 9/11? Sadly, the list of exceptions grows.
In March, three mortar rounds landed near the embassy, wounding Yemeni students at a nearby school and Yemeni government security personnel, the State Department said.
