Jeremy Scahill: Why Has the US Been Silent on Yemen's Uprising?

Rhetorical question?

Osama bin Laden is a Saudi citizen. Jeremy Scahill is only one of many journalists who refer to Yemen as the ancesteral home of bin Laden. He was born in Saudi Arabia with the Saudi King's own family. My question to Jeremy Scahill is: Why after 9/11 did the USA bomb Afganistan and Iraq instead of Saudi Arabia: home and birthplace of Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden?
