Panel discussion: Fragility and Extremism in Yemen, Again

March 26, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

The Bipartisan Policy Center panel discussion entitled Fragility and Extremism in Yemen, Again scheduled for Tuesday, February 3, 2015, at 9:00am, will now take place on Thursday, March 26, 2015 at 9:00am.

Yemen seemingly only attracts U.S. attention when tied to a terrorist attack or plot: the USS Cole in 2000; Anwar al-Awlaki’s incitement to terror since 2004; the “underwear bomber” in 2009; the cargo plane plot in 2010. The country’s long-simmering political fragility and endemic civil wars largely escape notice.

Now, both dynamics are at play simultaneously: just days after Yemen-based al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) took credit for the Kouachi brothers’ attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris, the Iran-backed Houthis have overrun the capital and forced the resignation of the Yemeni government.

Panelists will include Barbara Bodine, former U.S. Ambassador to Yemen; Leslie Campbell of the National Democratic Institute; and William D. Murray of the Council on Intelligence Issues and former executive of the CIA. The panelists will discuss recent events in Yemen and how they will affect U.S. counterterrorism efforts and regional dynamics.
