Heartache: Congress realizes US counter-terror aid to Yemen diverted to northern genocide

They did an inventory and there's some equipment missing already. This is a very good report, all in all. If the US gives President Saleh helicopters, he'll use them today on the Southern protesters and tomorrow on civilians in the northern Sa'ada war zone. In 2005, the Yemeni military strafed villages from gunships, causing numerous random casualties and they haven't grown a heart or a conscience since, as evidenced by widespread bombing of cities and villages in the last round of the Sa'ada War. More Yemen stuff here.
