Yemen has dominated the news recently, since U.S. authorities learned that the alleged Christmas Day bomber trained with al-Qaeda in Yemen. Mutallab purportedly has links to radical imam Anwar al-Awlaki, the cleric known to have contacted alleged Ft. Hood shooter Nidal Hassan. Martin Savidge will host Christopher Boucek and Sudarsan Raghavan. We’ll examine the situation with al-Qaeda in Yemen and then address additional angles of the shifting circumstances there. The show will analyze the background of three different ongoing conflicts: * al-Qaeda in Yemen (current activities, terror threat, government efforts) * Houthi rebels in North (independence goals, Iran v. Saudi, Shia minority) * South Yemen separatists (historical roots, central government weakness, clans)
