Expedient suffering? Sarah Leah Whitson from the MENA Division at Human Rights Watch

It’s the fourth year of the war in Yemen, and it is finally on the front pages of American newspapers, but it’s not because the suffering there has reached catastrophic proportions – that happened years ago. Instead, it’s because the Saudi question has become part of the political infighting in Washington. Does suffering only matter when it’s politically expedient?
