Mai Yamani Comments on Yemen in the Daily Star

Mai Yamani, author of "Cradle of Islam" and a prominent Saudi historian, recently shared her opinion on the fate of the Saleh regime in the Daily Star of Lebanon. Of note are two excellent passages:
Since 2009, the United States has showered Saleh’s government with military aid. But Washington is well aware that Al-Qaeda is an enemy of convenience for Saleh, and that the danger to the United States from post-Saleh chaos in Yemen is exaggerated.
The reality is that the United States has known for weeks that it cannot save Saleh’s regime. Its concern for Saleh’s political survival is closely linked to its guardianship of the Saudi regime
