As the U.S. and U.K. pull their staff from Yemen, U.S. drones pound the country with missiles, bringing the number of attacks to five within the last two weeks, with at least one of these strikes killing four civilians, according to reports on the ground.

In this interview with The Real News, Robert Naiman, policy director for Just Foreign Policy, discusses the secretive and unaccountable nature of the Obama administration's war on Yemen, the U.S. bid for geopolitical control and oil access in the region that underlies it, and the hypocrisy of publicly advocating democracy in Yemen while covertly bombing its people.
