STATEMENT BY SENATORS JOHN McCAIN AND LINDSEY GRAHAM ON SAUDI ARABIA LEADING AIR STRIKES IN YEMEN
This Comment by Prof As’ad Abu Khalil (The Angry Arab)
““We understand why our Saudi and other Arab partners felt compelled to take action. The prospect of radical groups like Al-Qaeda, as well as Iranian-backed militants, finding safe haven on the border of Saudi Arabia was more than our Arab partners could withstand.” Someone need to expose this lie by McCain. In fact, the Huthis are sworn enemies of Al-Qa`idah and Saudi regime intervened in Yemen when the Huthis were in the middle of a campaign to root out Al-Qa`idah in South Yemen. By all accounts, the Saudis have been supporting and funding and arming the Al-Qa`idah and ISIS affiliates in Yemen. That is missing from the US coverage of this silly statement.
