Political analyst Charles Krauthammer called the sudden evacuation of the U.S. Embassy in Yemen "humiliating" during an appearance on the Fox News Channel Thursday evening.
Speaking to host Megyn Kelly, the conservative pundit skewered President Barack Obama for his foreign policy regarding the Middle East.
"This is a policy in complete collapse," Krauthammer said.

Krauthammer added that for decades the U.S. has been a dominant power in the region, but said he feared Obama had managed to reverse that during his time in the White House.
"In these six years of Obama, that has evaporated," he told Kelly.
"And the reason is not difficult to understand," Krauthammer continued. "Obama said at the beginning of the presidency, 'I'm here to end wars.' And even yesterday, announcing the authorization for the use of force against ISIS, said, 'We're not interested in endless wars.' He has announced to the world again and again that we're getting out."
