    The State Department has reportedly deemed any mission to rescue U.S. government assets in war-torn Yemen too risky.

    The Wall Street Journal, citing a State Department official, reports that any evacuation point designated in a country where an Al Qaeda affiliate is active and an unstable security picture puts Americans and any U.S. military assets involved at risk.

    Instead, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf has pointed to an online system where Americans stranded in Yemen can register to receive updates on opportunities to leave the country. The department has also talked to other countries about Americans joining their rescue missions, she said.

    Not really new.

    This administration has made a habit of abandoning American citizens.
