Antiwar Radio: Gregory Johnsen

Gregory Johnsen, blogger and former Fulbright Fellow in Yemen, discusses Yemen’s history and factional differences, blowback from U.S. military action, the economic hardships which are the primary motivation of the protests, the likelihood that Saleh could fall, how US aid to Yemen helps the government fight their enemies, rather than al Qaeda, the attempted attack of Christmas 2009 and what U.S. policy in Yemen should be.
