9/14/19 Robert Naiman on How Congress Could Stop the War in Yemen

Robert Naiman explains why the Saudi-led war in Yemen, which Scott calls the worst thing the U.S. is doing right now, is unjust and unconstitutional. President Obama started to support the Saudis in their campaign during his second term, supposedly as a favor in exchange for Saudi Arabia’s support of the Iran nuclear deal. Naiman says that Nancy Pelosi has a unique opportunity to make ending this war a priority through the House-Senate Conference Committee, but it’s unclear whether she really cares about it, despite her supposedly progressive reputation. Scott points out the irony that a handful of constitutional conservatives are actually good on Yemen, and yet many democrats are not.
