Reuters reveals Saudis kept some key details of military action in Yemen from U.S. until last moment

Reuters revealed how Saudi Arabia kept some key details of its military action in Yemen from Washington until the last moment, as the kingdom takes a more assertive regional role to compensate for perceived U.S. disengagement. The Middle East’s top oil power told the United States weeks ago it was weighing action in the country but only provided exact details just before last week’s unprecedented air strikes. Then, in one of the most popular videos of the week, Reuters detailed how these air strikes are raising the stakes in the Yemen conflict, which could quickly escalate into a wider war involving multiple nations throughout the Middle East.
