Apparently, the Saudis haven't been using American weapons very nicely, unless you consider dropping cluster bombs on Yemeni schools and hospitals nice.
The usual GOP suspects (McCain et al) claim the Saudis MUST do this because IRAN! Meaning Yemen's civil war is really a proxy war directed by Iran. The Intercept begs to differ:
Here's what Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) said (not included in the video excerpt below):
Murphy argued that all of the Saudi bombs, provided by the US, are being dropped on civilians and Yemen's Houthi faction, rather than being used against “our sworn enemy, Al-Qaeda.”
This war has given opportunity for Al Qaeda and Islamic State (IS, also known as ISIS/ISIL) to grow in leaps and bounds, he said.
“How can you say you’re serious about strangling ISIL when the textbooks that are produced inside Saudi Arabia are the very same textbooks that are handed out to recruit suicide bombers?" Murphy asked on the Senate floor.
