Biden’s Pledge to Pull Back in Yemen Is Full of Holes

A close analysis of Biden’s announcement to end US support for “offensive” operations in Yemen but continue to “defend Saudi Arabia’s sovereignty” suggests perhaps a disingenuous ploy to appease a refreshingly active antiwar coalition while continuing to intervene through other means. Read the piece in The New Republic.

There’s a lot of interesting stuff in here on Qatar, USAID and Samantha Power, the Houthi terrorist designation, and Biden’s diplomatic gaslighting. I spoke with Yemen expert Isa Blumi (whose analysis is truly unparalleled), Saudi scholars Victor McFarland and Robert Vitalis, and arms expert Bill Hartung.
