Will Porter makes his debut on the Scott Horton Show to discuss his article for the Libertarian Institute, “Yemen’s Silent Numbers: Official Death Count Masks War’s Toll on Civilians.” Porter explains the numerous problems with the OHCHR’s civilian death count and why the estimates likely don’t reflect near the total number of civilians whose lives have been lost as a result of the war.
Discussed on the show:
- Nasser Arrabyee
- “The situation of human rights in Yemen including violations and abuses since September 2014 (OHCHR)
- “Cholera Spreads as War and Poverty Batter Yemen” (The New York Times)
- Clair Manera
- “Yemen’s Hidden War,” by Matthieu Aikins (Rolling Stone)
