12/7/18 Robert Naiman on Yemen and BDS

by | Dec 12, 2018 | Interviews

Robert Naiman of justforeignpolicy.org joins Scott to talk about efforts in the senate and the house to end the Saudi-led war in Yemen using the War Powers Resolution. Naiman explains that there are two wars going on, both of which the United States is involved in: one is the explicit U.S. campaign against AQAP, loosely and perhaps legitimately justified by the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force, while the other is led by Saudi Arabia and the UAE, but with U.S. support. The house and senate resolutions target American participation in the latter war without touching the former. Some say this is a loophole that the government would use to justify the war against AQAP, but many activists, including the ACLU, say that that is expressly not the case, and since the worst atrocities are happening as a result of the Saudi war, that’s the one we should focus our immediate efforts on. Naiman encourages everyone to call the Capitol Switchboard at 202-225-3121.
