US and Yemen

I read that the US government is feigning surprise at the "sudden" arrival of `Ali `Abdullah Salih to Yemen.  I mean, you think that Saudi Arabia would arrange for the private jet of the Saudi King to take Salih back to Yemen without informing the US, which has been desperate to keep the Yemeni regime intact--with or without Salih, although it still prefers Salih.
