US Touts Battle Against Yemeni al-Qaeda While Financing Saudi Slaughter

Officials say the US has tripled the number of airstrikes against al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), the group’s Yemeni affiliate, this year. This is a desperate attempt to weaken AQAP, and has largely failed.

Though officials are trying to present this as proof they need even more efforts against AQAP, the reality is that US and Saudi policy in Yemen has greatly empowered AQAP over the past three years, which is why the airstrikes aren’t putting a dent in them.
