- Time to End the Forgotten War in Yemen
Time to End the Forgotten War in Yemen
The administration’s record
on Yemen has been disappointing, to put it mildly. When he was on the
campaign trail, President Biden called Saudi Arabia a “pariah” and pledged to
stop the flow of U.S. arms to the regime. And in his first foreign policy
speech, the president said that he would “end support for offensive
operations in Yemen” along with “relevant arms sales.” Instead, his
administration sold over $1 billion in arms to Saudi Arabia in its first year
in office, and it has refused to use all of the leverage at its disposal to
end Saudi attacks on Yemen. In fact, Saudi air strikes have increased during
Biden’s tenure, including an attack on a migrant detention center earlier
this year that killed 90 people and wounded over 200.
