Scott talks to Robert Naiman from Just Foreign Policy about the continued efforts to end U.S. support for the Saudi-led war and starvation campaign in Yemen. Naiman explains the complexities of the various types of bills and resolutions in the house and senate, and why it’s been so hard to pass this kind of thing in the past. He says that if people want to help, the best thing they can do is to make phone calls to their senators and congressional representatives.
Discussed on the show:
- War Powers Resolution
- “H.J.Res.37” (Library of Congress)
- AIPAC Policy Conference 2019
- “Inside the White House During the Syrian ‘Red Line’ Crisis” (The Atlantic)
Robert Naiman is Policy Director at Just Foreign Policy and president of the board of Truthout. He helped write The WikiLeaks Files: The World According to US Empire. Find him on Twitter @naiman.
