US Republicans: Saudi action reflects distrust of Obama

Yemenis stand at the site of a Saudi air strike against Huthi rebels near Sanaa Airport on March 26, 2015US Republicans warned Thursday that Saudi-led air-strikes in Yemen, apparently conducted without US coordination, show Arab allies have lost trust in the Obama administration as it navigates delicate nuclear talks with Iran. As warplanes from Saudi Arabia and other allies pounded Huthi Shiite rebel positions for a second straight day, hawkish US lawmakers expressed alarm at the “proxy war” unfolding in the Middle East, and pinned part of the blame on President Barack Obama’s foreign policy. The Saudi-led intervention without notifying Washington ahead of time “signals a reality that the countries in the region no longer have confidence or are willing to work with the United States of America,” Senator John McCain told reporters. Washington and other world powers are in the midst of intense negotiations with Tehran over limiting its nuclear program in exchange for a lifting of Western economic sanctions.
