"The U.S. government is strongly on record as defending the rights of citizens to demonstrate peacefully. The Embassy also rejects any allegation that the U.S. government has somehow condoned the use of violence by any side."
- U.S. Embassy in Sana'a, Yemen, acting a little jittery for such a self-righteous statement.
It's not much, but we've done what we can to expose the U.S. government's cover-up of Yemen's revolution.
Gerald Feierstein, U.S. ambassador to Yemen: "We've been clear in saying we don't believe that the demonstrations are the place where Yemen's problems will be solved."
John Brennan, White House counter-terrorism adviser: "All sectors of the Yemeni opposition should respond constructively to President Saleh's call to engage in a serious dialogue to end the current impasse."
President Barack Obama hasn't commented publicly since early February. Some "record."
