On Now with Alex Wagner today, Jeremy Scahill, national security correspondent for The Nation and author of this week’s cover article, “Washington’s War in Yemen Backfires,” explains not only how the the failed US counterterrorism campaign in Yemen is fostering the very movements and sentiments it seeks to quell but also how the regime of President Ali Abdullah Saleh has reappropriated American counterterrorism funds for its own purposes.
