U.S. Counterterrorism Strategy in Yemen
September 8, 2010
In 2009, the failed Christmas airline attack brought Yemen to the forefront of many discussions about al-Qaeda and terrorism. Despite the newly-increased spotlight on Yemen and its troubles, the country has long been a core part of broader U.S. counterterrorism strategy.
In this public event, Daniel Benjamin, the State Department's coordinator for counterterrorism discussed the circumstances in Yemen and provided insight on the current U.S. counterterrorism strategy.
