Shame on Trump for allowing this criminal genocide in Yemen

Shame on Trump for allowing this criminal genocide

The US Central Intelligence Agency has granted its “George Tenet Medal” to the Saudi Crown Prince for what the agency calls his "intelligence work in the fight against terrorism." The medal was given to Mohammed bin Nayef by CIA Director Micheal Pompeo during a reception ceremony in the Saudi capital Riyadh. Nayef said Saudi Arabia’s relationship with the U-S is “historic and strategic”. He added that the move shows Washington’s recognition of what he called Riyadh’s anti-terrorism efforts. This is while Saudi Arabia stands accused of supporting terrorist groups fighting inside Syria since 2011. The Kingdom has also been engaged in a deadly military campaign against Yemen since March 2015. Relations between Washington and Riyadh strained last year over congressional legislation seeking to make it easier for families of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers who carried out the September 11, 2001 attacks came from Saudi Arabia.
