Airstrike Blowback

Filed under: Abyan, Air strike, Al-Qaeda, Counter-terror, TI: Internal, Yemen — by Jane Novak at 8:15 am on Wednesday, December 23, 2009

Blowback 1: Vid: al Qaeda rallies the crowd, that’s so bad, especially in the absence of a competing narrative.

Blowback 2: Conflating air strikes on al Qaeda with air strikes on the Houthis.

CSM: The strikes comes just three days after The New York Times reported that the United States has provided weapons and logistical support to Yemeni government strikes against “suspected hide-outs of Al Qaeda within its borders.” That involvement has raised questions over whether the US has been active in Yemen – and Saudi Arabia’s – fight against the Houthis as well.
