WASHINGTON — The House voted to direct President Donald Trump to withdraw U.S. forces from the Saudi-led conflict in Yemen as part of an effort to step up oversight of foreign policy following lawmakers' criticism of the president's moves on Saudi Arabia, Syria and Afghanistan.
The Pentagon is halting refueling of warplanes from the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen, U.S. and Saudi officials have announced, ending the controversial U.S. support to allies in the bloody conflict.
In the days after Sept. 11, 2001, the United States set out to destroy al Qaeda. President George W. Bush vowed to “starve terrorists of funding, turn them one against another, drive them from place to place, until there is no refuge or no rest.”
