This past Sunday, 60 Minutes ran a great story on Yemen, entitled "Yemen & The War on Terror." You can either watch the video or read the transcript of the story. (I want to thank my mom for calling and letting me know!)
The National also ran a story on Yemen today, where the author asserts that the real problem Yemen faces is "rapid resource depletion and a speedily expanding, underemployed population." This is not new news, and the article pretty much regurgitates a lot of what Yemen followers already know, but it is important to keep this type of story in the news until the general populace in the West finally comes to understand why Yemen is truly "in the spotlight."
