by Phil and Cooper Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018

Since 2015, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has led a bloody military intervention into its southern neighbor Yemen, whose government was overtaken by the Houthi movement. The United States government has played a large role in the continuation of Saudi Arabia’s operations, but as the body count rises and the humanitarian crisis deepens, are members of the Trump Administration starting to walk back their support? Al-Monitor Pentagon correspondent Jack Detsch joins Phil and Cooper to discuss on this week’s podcast.
