President Trump's 2017 Travel Restrictions Were on Countries Listed by Obama; Not a Muslims Ban

"The reason they were banned. During those travel restrictions were because they were from a list of seven countries. Seven countries that were put on that list because of terrorism problems by one who wait for it, Wait for it. Barack Obama. If it was a Muslim ban and not a banned from certain terror supporting countries. We're having a problem vetting people in Than any Muslim would have been allowed in the United States again to the Liberals. This thing I'm just asking you to do an exercise and logic here. If Trump's travel restrictions targeted Muslims and they said, you are banned that if you are Muslim, you would not be allowed in. That is not true. You're Muslim. You were allowed into the United States. It was not a Muslim bed. It was a travel restriction from seven countries that the Obama the Obama administration had categorized as having issues with their vetting process because of their problems with terrorism. You doubt me? I always come at the receipts, folks, I'm not gonna waste your time. Here's an observer article. Michael, say NATO January 30th 2017. Headline Obama administration helped make Trump's Muslim travel ban possible quote as opposed to being an anomaly induced by Trump's presidency. The band was set in motion by Obama's administration. In December of 22 US 15 Obama signed into law the Visa Waiver Improvement and Terrorists Travel Prevention Act. Which designated Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Libya and Somalia as areas of concern. One of those countries have in common with the Trump travel ban. Or a Muslim ban, according to leftist lunatics. It's the exact same countries he used to restrict travel from the ones the Obama administration had designated as having problems with terrorism.

"He's my absolute pleasure to welcome back to johnny gould's jewish state to via tenenbaum. Absolute pleasure to be with you again. You know you are a true free speech. Doyenne and for this particular podcast. I think it's the first thing verson ground rules as you can smoke. That's the first thing eight you're wanting to billion and the second thing is you truly opened my eyes to my own. I think tolerance of jew hate when we first met two years ago thinking because before that time you know. I've been conditioned i think in growing up in the uk in school where they're only three jewish kids to tolerate the what they call politely banter works erm you would call anti semitism and it did overstretched itself from time to time and i think that is a sort of shall we say looking for a better word but would have jimmy cued. I think from a lot of british people. And i think that's what you sean likes this book. Which is finally out in english. That's why it's called the tame taming of the ju. it's not just a take on shakespeare. It's the taming of the jewel. I mean giuseppe. Funding indicated biden. Own amazing to me edo deny or tolerate and sometimes joined together. Fox's would there accuse us we'd the hate us. That was shocking. I mean the fell. Shocking was citizen. This admit is imminent burden. I didn't expect it. I went to britain. Because i'm a tinto naomi's love english data. I said okay. My published opportunity mean sister. Go anywhere you want whatever you would like to go is i like to go to britain. I like to go. i like to see did out. I mean zane ought to do it better than anybody else. That's what i remember. And then the was black seed said. Okay i'll see you two belting stone which one stone i didn't expect anti-semitism and i didn't expect such a contaminating such a contagious. Such deepen. they semitism so deeply rooted. You know it on an island katelyn or in england which is the most important of course a bit of the uk but it was a frightening to sit and what is more fighting. Wants to see the basically. I'll kind of collaborating. Sometimes they had to fight jewish lead. Doesn't seem like law. Your people told me this and that your people told me i interviewed. People not told me are available. The life is a horrible thing so this is the common people and it took time. Tim's admitted but one that gate open has had them open and started talking. Honestly say to me you know. How many times have been told delta jew oh you know let us all kinds of dips and it's like amazing much so and little kits in manchester of hasidic. The auto talks kits in manchester and london will have had acts pelted them only storm so whatever it is i mean is a big addictiveness and we talked to jewish leaders saying even when the time used to say anything against wirelessly well owning two positions if to say one wowed against jimmy coleman only now's opt in the position you know as it became hewison you wayne saying that a one is easy allies. That are not going to be selected you know in a volume label for example district. Tina zero willing to say it was piping to see that one of the most disturbing rates. I think of british antisemitism and this might go around the world as well is. There is a sort of dog whistle so that someone can maintain that they're not anti semitic so someone who is an influence on me. Extreme left and concise something assiduously continuously hard left without. Referencing jews but then. His followers commend dog whistle a really serious anti semitic sort of betrayal of what they think themselves. I'm using an example of a very powerful voice. Which is john bishop. Who has who has three and a half million followers. He prostrate himself in front of ken loach on twitter. He said all this great interpreted it was as though he transferred the word. A jeremy corbyn for ken loach. I would kneel before him. And then if i couldn't anymore i prostrate myself in front of him which set off a huge torrent of jew hate and of course he a month ago on holocaust memorial day. Couldn't believe the terrible tragedies and then this is where the problems lie and that's an eye opener i think for british choosier surprising the anti-semites i mean disgust for britain and coastal are the places. You know that they took very nicely. Buddy dead jews in world war cho- you knows such nice people bubble and so bad and let's give some money to memorize them and and an make any fence you know maybe even endows of comments may be whatever it is making events you know in in a beautiful place to memorize their juice by the juice living was you know i mean it's like at all let's let you know what's album changes on the plane and of course the cord is a polish time. The code is is the stinian am am by itself. You know if you kill by the palestinians you know it doesn't mean that you don't like jews you know if you're critical officially doesn't mean that you're antisemites if you are cup only fizzle and if the only people who care about our justice palestinians because you killed by nobody else. Don't get about. Muslims in china while being tortured by million. Your don't care about syria. Don't care about libya you don't care about lebanon. You don't care about you. Don't even know what happens in yemen. Of course you never heralded by the war in chechnya and and distorted opening their head about anything.

"News story out of Iran is that the Revolutionary Guard. They've inaugurated a new underground missile facility that was intended designated for missile storage reported by state TV. I mean, so there are transparent to that extent. On by the commander of the Revolutionary Guard who we first met when I say we, the United States first met with the embassy takeover. In November of 1979. He said the cruise and ballistic missiles will empower the forces Navy even more. They had a TV report that showed footage of scores of missiles in an enclosed space resembling an underground corridor. And they claimed that these missiles contractual 2000 kilometers, which is 1200 miles Um, placing much of the Middle East, including Israel within range, and I'm not mistaken. There was a bit of a dust up today. I think that Iranian forces Struck a U. S military base in Syria. And I think there was a little bit of a problem over the weekend with with an oil tanker in the strait of her moves. It just seems that they're just spoiling for a fight. Even even again. You know, a few weeks after we've have have resumed participation in these talks. Am I missing something? When the the Washington has, uh has had talks to try and re enter the J C P away, but it has not yet done so on. It is requesting certain focus and understanding from Iran before doing so we'll have to see Where Iran takes it. But yes, Iran's the military prowess has always been very, very important in the region in the world. The Iranian military power when the molars took over in Tehran that you mentioned 1979 when they did take over is the Iranian army was the world's largest army. Andre the always been a very, very strong military force in the region. They fought a decade long war with their neighbor Iraq at the time in the 19 eighties on into the 19 nineties. On But But yes, one would. One would hope that the world does understand as I mentioned in the beginning when you live closer to to a country like that. I think you understand it better. It's all very well to live tens of thousands of miles away from from Iran. But if you don't have to deal with what they're doing, and they're undermining Off the Middle East on bits all over the Middle East, their connections in Lebanon and in Syria and in Iraq and in the Yemen on their meddling in affairs in governments all over the Middle East.

You can't just walk in and start taking pictures: War photographer on Yemen crisis

"This is daniel. Johnson picture the war in yemen. And chances are you've come across. An image ought to buy war photojournalist. Giles clarke on his latest trip to the country. That's been ravaged by six years of war. He based himself in an abandoned school that time to hundreds of displaced people. The photographs he took and the stories. He heard feature in a campaign to raise awareness about their plight. It's inside yemen portrait of resilience and it wasn't easy as he explained when i spoke to him for this. Un news interview the portraits resilience brother like approach other issues such as malnutrition mothers children victims of war that flee whenever fighting against and living in and around the hugs become impossible so these portraits have resilience are meant to show the side of humanity that we don't often see in these camps. These idee settlements often very difficult to get to of course yemen itself is difficult to get to but to get into some of these more remote camps it was my goal and although this woman is actually on the edge of aden which is slightly more accessible than or lot more accessible than many. That's probably why. I picked this particular place. Because i was able to build up trust with some of the subjects and address the concerns with a little bit more time when usually has in conflict zones. Maybe set the scene for me. What is it that you see when you arrive at this camp outside aden. What has to remember that this over four million people now displaced within yemen itself who have been moved pushed out various regions and many of them fled to the south and a number six seven hundred thousand of those make that way to from the northern regions particularly around data which was the caught that made the news twenty eighteen. Another came down the coast. You'll see in the inside yemen campaign that we created that. We wanted to tell the story about this. Taking the movement is mass movement of people so when you arrive in these places in yemen a lot of these places are very informal. There's no real structure that's usually a local camp to the leader if you like. And the un doing their best to try and provide aid agencies local agencies doing their best to try and provide supplies wfp and all the different groups that are trying to help these people who are now living very much in limbo In very rough crude makeshift shelters in this case. It was abandoned school which made the sort of a sect. That's often what i try and do. When i were trying to tell the stories find somewhere that i can work within and get to know people and sort of get an understanding before i go ahead and start work. So how long did it take you to build up a rapport with these displaced families in this abandoned school before you can press the shutter. How long does that take started. Working on the idea for poor chaser resilience. It really came from wanting to give some dignity to those who i'm working with the story. Hard life up rooted experience of trauma. And you have to remember the trauma. These people have been through and the going through so for traits resilience was to try and show really without doing too much but just putting them in front of my field division. I realize that you're dealing with people who have extraordinary resilience. These people really do have to deal with stuff that we would never have to think about here in comfortable of first world countries and often that takes time i mean i i went to aden in twenty eighteen and i've spent you know really weeks in that school that time And so you'll face becomes noreen and people begin to ignore you.

"In Yemen. And yet another missile strike in a region is very troubled, and oil prices are up on the news. To put it all in perspective. We welcome now Bloomberg anchor of commodities Edge as well as Bloomberg markets and the European clothes, Alex Still, if that's not enough, it's also does cables expect came away to do that. Thank you so much, Alex. Because you're the expert on oil. How shook up should we be? Um Not quite. I mean, the Port area does handle about 95% of Saudi Arabian exports was quite a big deal, but no production was actually harmed, and only one part of the port was injured. There's a few takeaways. One is the market reaction quite different than when we saw in the previous strike that did interrupt oil production, and the other is how this dynamic plays out between the U. S. Saudi Arabia and Iran. As the U. S. Appears to still want to bring Iran to the table in terms of a nuclear deal. Some analysts say that part of the conversation just got a lot longer and a lot tougher. Well, they've been various missile strikes over there is you know, involving rebel bases in Syria and and also in Iraq. So how realistic do you think it is that we get around back the bargaining table because ultimately that does affect how much oil gets produced, right? Have absolutely There are indications that they're selling it sort of on back channels anyway to the oil. Some oil is coming out of Iran. This supremo package maybe a little bit differently, but in terms of new production coming online, that's definitely a good question. In the summer. We get elections in Iran, so that also raises concerns of if the deal's done doesn't have to happen before elections were more hard liners. Could potentially come into power. Now we're Saudi Arabia comes into play is President Trump in Saudi Arabia really blossomed in their relationship, and the President Biden administration has taken a much harder line when it comes to Saudi Arabia, for example, that the shoji murder as well as with arms sales, eh? So how did they wind up aligning themselves if they do want to bring Iran back to the table? And who has the leveraged? Always a conversation when it comes to Iran. Such a great point, But I wonder whether this could be bad news being good news in the sense that in so far as President Biden was distancing himself a little bit particular for the Crown prince. They see that attack and the U. S. May say, You know what we get? We can't go away quite quite yet. You still got problems with those who fear rebels down there for Yemen? Yes. And I think it does make that conversation that harder line conversation a bit. More difficult. Also, if there is some supply disruption, you know the world still needs OPEC to be the spare capacity supplier like you still need Saudi Arabian oil to pump more, particularly if U. S companies are much more pumping a burst and they're going under capital discipline. Real spare capacity that is Saudi Arabia. So that I would think also complicates the issue. Where is President Trump made no bones about trying to influence OPEC and Saudi Arabian policy. Clearly, President Biden is going to something a little bit different, But then that has to be in the mix there as well. Okay, thank you so much, I say, really appreciate your coming over from cable to do this. This is Alex Steel anchor of just about every program here and, more important, Be sure to tune into Alex's interview. Tomorrow with Mike Worth. He's the Chevron CEO. That's gonna be coming at 3:30 P.m. eastern time here in New York. This is balance of power, and we're on Bloomberg Television and on radio..

"That wouldn't really stop any of the activity in yemen. That would acknowledge that. Iran was a threat than it in fact had some language in that. I didn't love but we had to take but when make a key finding in a key concession that our activity in supporting the saudi regime was unauthorized. And we got that as a keep finding. Once we didn't that i went to senator sanders. And i said senator. I know it's a big jump by now. You just ran for president. There's no other. Senator wants to do it though you now are on solid ground because we have the house saying that. This is an unauthorized activity. And then he said. I i believe in this. I'm going to introduce the war powers resolution in the senate and we ended up. He ended up getting forty some votes. And then we reintroduced in the house and it was just ping pong both of us would keep reintroducing it but it wasn't in vain. I mean because of this house activity and you talk to martin griffiths at the un. You'll tell you this mattis took notice. Mattis started calling the saudis putting pressure on them which in part led the ceasefire Eventually the administration voluntarily suspends the refueling. It's amazing to me that they of course never took credit for doing that because they had too much of a relationship with the saudis but that was according to griffin's part of the turning point in the war when the administration takes that response to congressional action and the congressional action is in direct response to the off mine mobilization. I mean without going into detail. The online activists in the groups were very very sophisticated. I mean they were targeting members on the relevant committees there were certain primary runs. Believe it or not that a yemen at the forefront there were targeted messages to people that this was going to be voting issue throughout the two years of senator sanders. In my efforts the online community is really what allowed us to keep building. Traction and shelby's murder was that turning point right and so on. The question of primary. So june of twenty eighteen is when ocasio cortez beats crowley and that kind of shocks the system. You know everybody in the house starts to think. Oh wait a minute. We see this coming you know. Could i be next and is it was a primary referring to sarah smith running against adam smith battle the smiths out in washington. There was a primary there. There was a primary in. Of course jamaal bowman was running on the there. Were there were. A number of candidates ran on yemen. I think he spoke. Adam smith he would say that that made him pay attention more to to to what was going on the activist community on yemen. And like you said. October two thousand eighteen. Jamal khashoggi is butchered by saudi arabia. Saudi arabia has admitted for the first time. The murder of the journalist. Jamal khashoggi was premeditated.

Allied houthi group u. n. officials are trying to revive peace talks to end. The war is the country. Suffering is also worsened by an economic and currency collapse and the covid nineteen pandemic in late twenty seventeen. Unh chief mark. Lowcock warned that yemen was then facing the largest famine. The world has seen for many decades with millions of victims. We prevented famine two years ago. Lowcock told the security council more money for the aid. Operation is the quickest and most efficient way to support famine prevention efforts. Right now he said the world body had received less than half of what it needed about one point five billion dollars this year for its humanitarian operations in yemen. Last year it received three billion dollars. When i think about what famine would mean. I'm really at a loss to understand. Why more is not being done to prevent. Its lowcock said it is a terrible agonizing and humiliating death. Yemenis are not going hungry. They are being starved. Donald trump seeks to discredit last week's election with baseless claims of voter fraud. He's team has bombarded his supporters with requests for money to help pay for legal challenges to the results but any small dollar donations from trump's grassroots. Donors won't be going to legal expenses a toll. According to a reuters review of the legal language in the solicitations. A donor would have to give more than eight thousand dollars before. Money goes to the recount account established to finance election challenges including recounts and lawsuits over alleged improprieties. The emailed solicitations send supporters to an official election. Defense fund website that asks them to sign up for recurring donations to protect the results. And keep fighting. Even after election day the fine print however makes clear. Most of the money will go to other priorities. A large portion of the money goes to save america. A trump leadership political action committee set up on monday and the republican national committee on the federal election commission rules. Both groups have broad leeway in how they can use the funds leadership pacs such as save. America are often up by prominence political figures to spend money on other candidates while also paying for personal expenses such as travel and hotel stays. The disclosures would allow trump and the rnc to channel the donations into other political causes campaigns such as the too high stakes january senate runoff races in georgia that could determine control of the senate and a likely to rank among the most expensive races in us history. That means that before dollar goes to the recount fund save america would receive five thousand dollars and the rnc around three thousand three hundred donations to the recount committee illegally limited to two thousand eight hundred the fundraising pitches have channeled trump's rage and his refusal to accept the results of an election that major media outlets cold on saturday for his democratic opponent.

"It's tuesday. November twenty. In the middle of September. I arrived in the town of Diane, which is in the far northwest of Yemen. It's a farming towns, very simple place, and we arrived there early in the morning and the main street of this town is not paved it's just a dirt road, essentially. And soon after we arrived in the town. I saw that on the side of the road was big crater. It was marked out with wooden sticks and red tape, and after we get out of the car and walked around I discovered they were people doing a little parade which was to commemoration of what had happened there six weeks earlier, and what had happened there. This was where a bomb had struck a school bus full of children in August, killing almost everyone on board the forty four children killed and ten adults and just over a low stone wall was the wreckage of the school bus, which was twisted into an almost unrecognizable mass of of black metal. Just beyond the crater where the bomb had struck was written in color on wall in both English and Arabic. America kills Yemeni. Children. And this is something you find all over Yemen that when there's a major air strike there will be bomb fragments found, and usually they have serial numbers or other markings that them and in this case the markings made clear that it was an American made bomb..

"Back in June. We did a show on the war on the humanitarian crisis in Yemen. Millions of people are starving thousands of died. But go figure the death of one person a person who had nothing to do with Yemen. Got people to pay attention. His name was Jamal Shoghi. Jamal has showbiz death. Put the spotlight on Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia is playing a major role in the conflict in Yemen. And the United States has been supporting Saudi Arabia. Today. We're gonna explain this whole conflict once more because it's crazy complicated. And after we do that, what might change now that the world's paying more attention to how horrific things are. The casualties of Yemen's war go way beyond the bombs and bullets the disaster hidden from the world's is is Melanie attrition, walling. And a half million children are suffering and the pediatric emergency units. And so Naro is under terrible pressure a crisis. That's been worsened by the Saudi blockade of ports and border crossings, which is limited food and humanitarian supplies the country registered its one millionth case of cholera health officials say it's the fastest spreading Colorado democ in history. I've been to Yemen, and I fell in love with it. I site Joost Hiltermann works at the International Crisis Group, a very long enrich cultural history and the architecture is establishing the artwork is likewise. So and the people, of course, while being desperately poor compared to say to Gulf neighbors are ever so welcoming and friendly and nice the Yemen. He remembers is basically gun and United Nations. Now says that fourteen million people on the brink of starvation, which is almost impossible to imagine. The comic situation is desperate to humanitarian situation as horrendous and people are literally going to starve if various sieges that have been imposed, but very military actors continue, I know this conflict in Yemen is incredibly complicated and involves. Many different parties to get an idea of the sort of politics of the country and the geography what do people need to know about where Yemen is where it situated who its neighbors are to understand everything that's going on right now. So it's located on the southwestern tip of the Arabian peninsula. So south of Saudi Arabia coastline is partly Red Sea and party to go of Aidan, and then Dorothy Indian Ocean and coastal people very much mix into cultures very much mix typical of coastal regions anywhere. And it's a it's a country was twenty seven million people, very poor resource-poor. It was a real problem is water scarcity the country has some oil, but that is running out, you You know. know, basically been sort of neglect its member of the world. So in addition to being resource poor the country's going through a civil war right now. How did it start and win? Two states, nor to Yemen in southern Yemen. South Yemen was a socialist Republic during Cold War and the two parts were unified after the end of the goals were, but then it was a a brief civil war in nineteen ninety s the country since his or throughout this period was under control of a single autocrat. But name of Ali, Abdullah Sala. He was essentially pushed aside after the Arab uprisings of two thousand eleven through a deal. Made by the alliance of Gulf states Gulf Cooperation Council, they push them aside and put in a transitional government under different presidents who had taking over from his bus ie the LaSala who had led the country for three decades. And then there was a national dialogue process that was going to tackle all the difficult questions that Yemen faces including what's happened to south for example, that used to be independent. Yeah. And that national dialogue process fell apart. And that's what triggered a civil war. Had he struggled impose authority in a country riddled with poverty. This spread of armed groups and corruption. He also couldn't fend off the rising influence of the who 'this who had taken control of the northern province of Saada and the capitals, and that was in two thousand fourteen in late two thousand fourteen to who he rebels who had been fighting the now former autocrat Alya Delasalle during the arts, they stormed into the capital butts allied with the forces of this former autocrats because he had been displaced by this new transitional president the who 'this as Shiite sect also distance themselves from SUNY terrorist groups like a Cada an ISIS.

"So it it's hard sound like who who are the good guys in this fight. And and whether there's a good guy team or not the larger point, it's a human catastrophe. But before we get to the the scope of this human catastrophe. Is there a good guy team here? I don't think there is a good guy team. But I think it's pretty clear that even you know, even anyone who's worried about the who the's as a political force. You know, these guys have only been made stronger. I think by this war for the past three and a half years. I don't think there's a good guy. But some people think that the who these are just flexible enough, but when can deal with them, what can make some kind of political settlement with them. Give us a sense of the men -tarian crisis in Yemen, which the UN says, maybe the worst unitarian crisis in the past century. Well, the thing to realize about Yemen is that it's it's even before this was the poorest country in the world. It's it's a beautiful country. And that's what often gets left out. It's got these magnificent twisted mountain peaks, these huge desert's, and then unexpected areas of beauty, and and and lush valleys in the south. But the people have always lived very close to subsistence, especially up in the highlands. Whether it's almost no water. The capital of Yemen Sonam was projected years and years ago to be the first city on earth major city on earth to completely run out of water. So then you add to that, you know, a multi-year bombing campaign, and it's chest catastrophic and you start to see evidence of this as soon as you arrive in the country, even in the south where there have been battles, and, you know, destroyed houses pancaked roofs, it gets to its worst. When you get up to northwestern Yemen, which is the heartland of who these and the. City the major city up there saadah is just incredible everything has been destroyed every building. Now the post office the the university the university bookstore. Everything is flattened, and it's very easy to find, you know, human evidence of this. There's internally displaced people along the roads and hospitals. Most of which are now non functioning are packed with with people who are desperate wounded people from the war, especially large numbers of women with babies who were suffering malnutrition. So it's it's just even for someone who's used to being in a third world country. What's happening? There is shocking. Why did you want to go to him and considering the risk? Is a country. I've been going to for a long time. I started going there about twelve years ago. And I think again what gets missed in. This is it's a beautiful fascinating place with a very, very distinctive culture. You know? Medina depends tends to homogenize countries. And that hasn't happened so much in Yemen. It's got these incredible medieval architecture that looks like drip castles, you don't find anything like it.

"And then walked back some of that support in December twenty sixteen bomb halted some arm sales to Saudi Arabia citing these civilian casualties. But one thing that bothered me a lot as they continue to refuel coalition planes that were part of that bombing. So it's there, certainly no clean hands. There. I think their sense was if they cut off support entirely they would lose all ability to throw. Back the Saudi your coalition forces. But clearly that didn't work very well in hindsight. So I would say two things in response to that one. I completely agree that the Obama administration towards the end of its term of Detroit rain side in terms of elm sales and some of the restrictions and Trump of his sleep kind of took his do what you will. I don't think that's a defense for the overall conduct of bomber with Yemen. And people say, you know, Syria is the stain on his conscience. Obama administration when it comes to. I think it was Yemen because do they Syria whatever you think about Syria. It wasn't a wool that was the US had direct control of it. Whereas in Yemen just to push back against you align about well. You know, losing control of the Saudis the point about the war in Yemen. And Senator Chris Murphy made this point when I interviewed him on my custody weeks ago is that this is not just a Saudi led war. This a US Saudi led war. You mentioned refueling refueling intelligence on sales the Saudis could not do this war without us support. The US is not just supporting this Wolfrom fall. It's. Implicit on a daily basis. And that's when read out your quote from Bruce right L A thirty veteran of the former advisor on Middle East policy for US presidents, including a Boma. He said quote early this year, if the US and UK tonight told king Salman, this war has to end it would end tomorrow the Royal Saudi Ethel's kennel operate without American and British support. Think about statement tell me a former CEO knows his stuff is saying that if the US told us Audis the war has to end it would end tomorrow, we the west US UK has the power to end the world's worst humanitarian crisis tomorrow. And we're not using that power is a complete travesty. I personally think it's indefensible when I left the White House and twenty thirteen all the work that I had done regarding Yemen was specific to targetting QA p within Yemen. And that was a very serious threat emanating out of Yemen for Maki, I cannot for the life of me understand the strategic interests in helping a proxy. War against Iran. Ian linked sort of forces that is just destroying nation and killing entire population. It's it's indefensible and the point about the proxy was interesting. Because of course, I mentioned a few moments ago when the will start to the Obama administration itself, privately did not think that there were massive ties between the Iranians who these, but you know, what has happened in recent years. There have been massive ties between the Iranians who 'this NBS pushed who these into Iranian arms back five Pasig MB as I call them, the reverse Midas, whatever he touches turns to shit. So you know, he he wants to blockade Qatar cut them off from Iran. He pushes Qatar into Iran's. He bums the who 'this to cut them off from Ron. He pushes them into Iran's arms kills Jamal Shoghi to silence criticism of his country. He gets way more criticism than you ever anticipated and just on the point about a QA al-qaeda and bin peninsula, regarded as one of the most vicious al-qaeda groups, the US has been droning Yemen for a while now, and we can have a separate debate about whether that was. That was wrong. But what's so interesting about the current conflict is all of the investigations on the ground Associated Press did a massive story and August is that the Saudis and the Moretti's this coalition or actually employing Al Qaeda fighters told me to fight against these. Okay. So not only is a complete moral catastrophe and humanitarian catastrophe from a strategic point of it makes no sense for the US to be engaging in a war and backing coalition of which Al Qaeda is the pump. What was the point seventeen years of the war on terror, if you're just going to join a coalition, which includes al-qaeda makes absolutely no sense? Save the world is brought to you by stitch mix..

"Use its influence to end the civil war in Yemen. But I mean, again, practically speaking, I'm not sure I'm seeing that that happening in a meaningful way. I agree with that. I would like to see the administration, particularly secretary Pompeo taking a much more active role in in trying to press forward on a diplomatic approach, supporting Martin Griffiths at the United Nations, getting our our friends and partners. And I, I also would say that this is an area where perhaps there is some opportunity for us to engage Russia in a positive and constructive way. They played a positive role in two thousand eleven two thousand twelve. We should see whether this is an area where despite all of the tension in our bilateral relationship, this is an area where we can work together. Again, I appreciate you bringing up Russia.

Those are not Yemeni and the influence from outside on both sides is likely extending this war and making the humanitarian crisis all the more harsh and difficult. And I think that in the twenty first century, it would be absolutely shocking to have a manmade fund, a millions of people killed by war that any other countries are involved in, but that shocked may be exactly what we're seeing here in Yemen. Jane Ferguson. She recently got into northern Yemen to report on the conflict there. She did that for PBS NewsHour. She's a special correspondent for them speaking with us today via Skype from Beirut Lebanon, Jane. Thank you so much for your reporting and thank you for for teaching us talking with us today. Thank you and embassador, Gerald, fire fire Stein a former US ambassador to Yemen from two thousand ten to two thousand thirteen. He's now director of government relations and policy programs at the Middle East institute ambassador. Thank you so very much humor. I make chocolate bardy. This is on point..

Basically, I mean, as you said, you haven't is completely broken and as really no governance a tool. And so with, I think it's about eighty seven thousand also migrants arriving on the shores of Yemen every year they arrive in a hostile environment where conflict has been the only rule of law over the last few years and then not really dig a great job at it. Quite frankly, they've set up various detention centers. And the thing that we explored in that particular report the mentioned is the various abuses. That take place that those detention centers and we uncovered corruption that we had stories of human trafficking of fatalities of huge mistreatment of these migrants who really have even fewer rights than the countries the deafening from. Well, the good news is you've got some results. You got the crony in charge of this, particularly egregious, bad detention facility fires, so that seemed like some progress in a desperate situation.

Over three years now, that doesn't really seem like any tangible end in sight. I mean, this battle full Hodeida if it happens will be extremely bloody and could potentially mean the outbreak of an even greater humanitarian crisis in a place that's already considered the west humanitarian crisis in the world. It's not immediately obvious who wins from this. I mean, a lot of the Emmys we spoke to, you felt like this was going on over the heads and the this was a. A proxy battle between outside players, including Iran, including the UAE, including Saudi, and they felt like they didn't really have a say in it, and they would just sort of watching the country crumbling to pieces. My real last question. I mean, you know, you have a camera person watching a de-mining operation. You're standing around in Rocco one of the most interest place on the planet. You're in Yemen.

"Has cut brain seen from inside yemen what is the understanding of yemeni people as to why the world appears to have been so disinterested in this conflict the perception of of people towards the international community has been so negative if we talk about the humanitarian assistance that has been provided since this conflict started hasn't cover the need that is actually happening on the ground and that has been perceived by a lot of people in yemen looking at international community as only a supporter of the conflict rather supporting of peace yemenis when they watch the international media they don't see that much covered about yemen and that gives them an indication that saudi is there piety number one but not the suffering and the agony yemenis face every day so yemenis would expect that the humanitarian assistance should meet at least the needs that people need yemen but more than that they really are keen for this conflict two two n so that the international community would need to do any support they should two things and and paddled first of all work seriously throw the un security council on through any peace truck to end this conflict on the other hand is to continue to humanitarian assistance our own vr if there is no prospect of peace at least in the short term both you and us almost seem fairly convinced of rap what's the likeliest prognosis thin say if we look at the next year or two mike this just rumble on more or less as it has or is there though it is a horrible thought to contemplate the possibility that this could get even worse it's likely that had the bull run belong with perhaps attempts by both sides to to take territory i think if they tried to the plan that had been talked about now for every year to retake the city of the day did not would obviously have a devastating impact on the civilian population.
