ACMCU briefing: “Yemen - If this is a policy success, what does failure look like?” with Barbara Bodine

Cosponsored with the Institute for the Study of Diplomacy. Last September, in announcing military operations against ISIS/ISIL, President Obama referred to Yemen as a US policy success, to the bafflement of many within and outside the country at the time. The jury was still out on our drone-dependent security/CT operations, the economy was in disarray and the political transition - a relative bright spot - was dimming. Recent events call the September judgment into even more question. What is really happening, and what does it mean for the US, the region, and the Yemenis?
