I’ll update my prior post to include al Beidh’s possible denial, which may or may not mean he didnt send the letter, but I still think he’s a non-starter, an opportunist and southern Yemenis could do much better in terms of effective representation and leadership.

Its astounding and disappointing at this late date, the southern movement can’t resolve its internal differences or even agree to the rules of the game in order to present a coherent platform and strategy beyond “independence”.
