    I learned to swim at the U.S. Embassy swimming pool in Niamey, Niger, in 1976. Little did I know, that would lead to a career as a U.S. Navy diver. It wasn’t pool parties, picnics or watching movies at the Recreation Center, the only entertainment in a country that didn’t have television, that prompted my 25-year career as a special operations officer. It was the Marines from the Security Guard Detachment that stood watch at the embassy all day, every day. -excerpt- President Biden has abandoned his sixth U.S. embassy in less than three years. -excerpt- When there is a...

    A massive new US embassy complex in Lebanon is causing controversy for its sheer size and opulence in a country where nearly 80% of the population is under the poverty line. Located some 13 kilometers (about 8 miles) from the center of Beirut, the US’ new embassy compound in Lebanon looks like a city of its own. Sprawling over a 43-acre site, the complex in the Beirut suburb of Awkar is almost two-and-a-half times the size of the land the White House sits on and more than 21 soccer fields. Many Lebanese on Twitter questioned why the US needs such...

    The U.S. military evacuated American diplomats and their families from Sudan, the country’s paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) said early on Sunday as fighting between rival commanders that has killed hundreds of civilians continued. The operation, involving six aircraft, was carried out in coordination with the RSF, it said. Separately, a person familiar with the matter told Reuters the U.S. military had successfully evacuated U.S. embassy personnel. The Pentagon did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Other foreign nationals began evacuating from a Red Sea port in Sudan on Saturday. The bloody onslaught of urban warfare has trapped...

    Ukraine is about to become Afghanistan 2.0 for Americans hoping to evacuate. Fox News Channel is reporting that the Biden Administration will not be able to evacuate U.S. citizens from Ukraine. “Given that the President has said military action by Russia could come at any time. The US government will not be in a position to evacuate US citizens. So US citizens, currently present in Ukraine should plan accordingly.” Arrange commercial flights,” a State Dept. official is quoted as saying on a phone call. The announcement is reminiscent of the administration’s feckless handling of the evacuation of Afghanistan — when...

    Houthi rebels have stormed the American embassy in Yemen and taken hostages, the Washington Free Beacon reported Thursday. State Department officials told the Free Beacon that “the majority of the detained have been released, but the Houthis continue to detain additional Yemeni employees of the embassy.” Houthi fighters reportedly took the compound on Wednesday, demanding “large quantities of equipment and materials,” per the Middle East Media Research Institute. Yemen has been embroiled in a brutal civil war between the Houthi rebels — who are backed, financed, and armed by the Iranian government —and the standing Yemeni government, which has the...

    At a time when US forces scramble to wind down evacuation efforts in Afghanistan, one of the most crucial resources that stranded American citizens have relied on to guide them safely to their evacuation flights was unavailable for several hours. The US Embassy in Kabul operates an ‘alert page‘ that provides status updates about the evacuation efforts and also details ways for those who are trapped behind enemy lines to reach the airport. On Saturday morning, visitors to the page were met by a “404 Error – Page Not Found.”

    While Biden Adminstration tries rushes 3,000 Marines to Afghanistan in the hopes of protecting the U.S. Embassy, it is my personal belief that the Embassy is already lost and surrounded! As I told a friend the other day, "The only thing that is factual in Afghanistan is loyalty to one's clan." and with the Taliban less that 50 miles from the capital, "How long do we expect Government Officials and the laughable Afghan Security Forces to hold on to the fantasy that they can stop the Taliban?" With 1,000s of refugees are currently flooding into Kabul daily expect the security...
