Due to ongoing violence, the U.S. government evacuated personnel from its Sudan embassy. As a result, this leaves thousands of American citizens without consular services.
Two rival Sudanese generals are at war, creating a dangerous situation in Khartoum. Multiple ceasefires have failed and the escalating violence pushed the U.S. to plan its embassy personnel evacuation.
Consequently, hundreds of deaths from the conflict finally prompted the embassy's temporary closure.
U.S. troops, totaling over 100 executed the evacuation. Unfortunately, they rescued fewer than 100 people, including embassy Marines and foreign diplomatic professionals.
Thankfully, the operation was fast and clean, with no small arms fire.
Impact of the Sudan Embassy Evacuation
The embassy's closure affects thousands of American civilians in Sudan. The U.S. government can't provide assistance without an embassy. Therefore, civilians must rely on their own resources for safety and travel from the country.
“It’s absolutely imperative that U.S. citizens in Sudan make their own arrangements to stay safe in these difficult circumstances,”White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby
The Sudan embassy evacuation highlights the dangers faced by diplomatic personnel amid political unrest. The situation leaves American citizens in Sudan vulnerable, with limited options for assistance.

We need an American President Right NOW, not the Traitor we have now.
Biden and his entire communist lackeys need to be charged with HIGH TREASON
And the Administration in charge keeps telling us that they care about Americans??? Anyone believing that BS has no comprehension of what is taking place in our government!!!!!
Here we go again!! Some Americans are rescued along with non Americans while even more Americans are left behind to fend for themselves!!
That jack***in chief doesn't care about the Americans who are left behind. Look at what happened in Afganistan. There were thousands left behind. He's a total disgrace to this country. Trump would've rescued everyone. I hate that dimentia ridden, evil man.
Biden has no idea what is happening in the world, he left people behind in Afghanistan and now he is doing the same in Sudan. All he cares about is himself, America needs a president that will care about Americans not ice cream. He is a disgrace.
Why should we expect anything different from this grossly incompetent administration? Look at how they handled Afghanistan.
THERE ISN'T ONE THING THESE IDIOT DEMOCRATS CAN EVER DO RIGHT, HANDLE, OR MANAGE PROPERLY! EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM FROM THE PRESIDENT DOWN NEED THEIR A---S KICKED GOOD AND PROPER AND THEN THROWN IN PRISON OR FACE CAPITAL PUNISHMENT FOR ALLOWING THIS COUNTRY, IT'S CITIZENS WHETHER IN THIS COUNTRY OR ANOTHER TO BE PUT IN JEOPARDY AND TO FACE THINGS ON THEIR OWN.
The A holes want to control everything, especially stupid things no one in this country want except your extreme unhinged left and aspects they should protect or manage with the highest level of urgency they completely fail at!
In my entire lifetime of 91 years I have NEVER seen such a worse administration. It's even worse than Carter! Good God, to think we have gone through what we have and there are those even more clueless that still back these freaks! Wise up people before we end up losing what's left of our country and end up in WW III!
I wished young people had your wisdom and knowledge of world events. Maybe then they could see following the democrats down this path is total destruction of America. Bless you sir.
As usual the incompetent Biden Administration continues to mess up everything they are involved with around the world. Another example of weak, lack of leadership and America losing face with other countries that were once our allies. We are not doing what we say or stating what we are going to do then following through with our promises. This country is in serious danger of being taken over from the inside due to the idiotic Biden Administration policies and the army of illegal aliens taking over our country now!
Fake president/his gang of corrupted idiots know what their doing which, is just what their told by "their bosses" !
The Biden administration at it again! How are we allowing this administration to keep putting the people paying their salaries last?!!!!!!! Take care of the citizens of this country first & our true allies next. This administration has no respect for the lives of our people. How much longer are all these politicians & lawyers going to talk the talk but not do anything???
Joe Biden and his administration should all be in jail for all the Americans that died, here we go again…get rid of demo Rats
