I discuss US-Saudi relations as President Barrack Obama visits Riyadh for the GCC summit.
The army should now if there is to be peace submit to the Yemeni state and the transitional president -- or else more chaos and war are certain.
Until recently, the U.S. relationship to Saudi Arabia has been one of those things that we're not allowed to do anything about. There's death and taxes, and the U.S. is joined at the hip to Saudi Arabia. Move along, nothing to see here.
Since the Saudis started this war, they have undermined any efforts to publicize their violations of international humanitarian law in their campaign against Yemen.
When I gave the niqab a try, I was shocked to realize the harassment only increased. I did everything right. I walked close to the wall, looked down while walking, avoided eye contact with men and didn't use perfume. I even covered my face, and yet those were the times I was harassed the most.
We understand that part of the job of Secretary of State involves "diplomacy", that long-forgotten art of talking to people instead of drone-bombing them.

Human Rights Watch has called on the United States, United Kingdom, France, and other countries to suspend all weapon sales to Saudi Arabia until it curtails its unlawful airstrikes in Yemen
The drone war will be as much Obama's legacy as health care or reshaping of the Supreme Court. The program may have been born under the George W Bush administration, but it has expanded and grown to be the focal point of the GWOT over the past seven years.
