What Is America's Role In Situation In Yemen?

Sunday marks the two-year anniversary of Saudi Arabia’s engagement inside Yemen. The U.S. is also involved there. It’s been conducting airstrikes as it tries to go after Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.

But despite the conflicts in that country, it gets far less attention than countries like Iraq and Syria, among many others.

To get a sense of the situation in Yemen, and America’s role in that, I’m joined by Katherine Zimmerman.

Zimmerman is a research fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and the research manager for AEI’s Critical Threats Project.
