Seche at CFR

Executive Vice President Stephen A. Seche spoke at the Council on Foreign Relations panel “Yemen: A Country in Crisis” discussing the aftermath of former President Ali Abdullah Saleh’s death: “I do think the Houthis will be exposed more for what they are. That veneer of legitimacy that Saleh allowed them to entertain has been removed, and they’ll be seen as heavy handed and repressive in ways that it was not always the case, at least when Saleh was around to provide that little bit of cushion for them.”
