In the US, the al-Awlaki strike looked like a clear tactical victory against AQAP, which Washington now considers its most dangerous enemy in the ‘war on terror’.
But from a Yemeni perspective, the US’ covert military campaign seems to be undermining its own strategic interests.
Critics say that even when they hit their intended targets, US missile strikes and raids just further destabilise the country.
And the American need for proxy forces and intelligence tied the US into a dangerous and compromising alliance with Yemen’s embattled and unpopular president, Ali Abdullah Saleh. Now he has been forced out by protests against his authoritarian regime, the White House’s efforts may come to naught.
America’s Dangerous Game, from filmmakers Richard Rowley and Jeremy Scahill, reveals the full scale of the covert war in Yemen and asks the question: Is the US creating more enemies than it can kill or capture?

Understanding The Present As We Seek Truth. To Create A Better Future
Turning and turning in the widening gyre | The falcon cannot hear the falconer | Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold | Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world | The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere | The ceremony of innocence is drowned | The best lack all conviction, while the worst | Are full of passionate intensity. -- W.B. Yeats, The Second Coming
