Jason Ditz


Jason Ditz, news editor of Antiwar.com, discusses the Yemeni protests with Saleh out of the country, the limited authority of what’s left of the state there, the de-facto autonomy of the northern and southern provinces; US policy on Yemen from pre-Christmas day bomber to the present: a microcosm of the war on terrorism’s counter-productivity, increasing escalation of drone strikes and US citizen Anwar al-Awlaki’s unilateral death sentence imposed by Obama for exercising his free speech rights and (possibly) being associated with al Qaeda.

  1. I appreciate the insight of Jason Ditz, and especially his news summaries at antiwar.com, but the way you two are pronouncing SALEH has been driving me crazy! The name (and it's a fairly common name – the name of a prophet mentioned in the Qur'an) has a couple of sounds that aren't found in English, but surely there must be someone who can give you an idea of how it should be pronounced… (Or check out Al-Jazeera English.) It's like SOL-EH (and the 'h' makes a sound).

  2. The underpants bomber was likely a CIA stooge. Recall that his father warned the US embassy that his son was planning a terrorist attack against the US some two or three weeks prior to Xmas. Then our misbegotten terrorist was ushered by a mysterious, well dressed gentleman through the boarding area in Amsterdam. He was given a harmless smoke grenade and told by his undercover CIA cohorts to detonate it over Detroit….an Xmas present to the Dept. of der Fatherland Security.
