Intel Chairman Burr on Saudi Airstrikes: Yemen “May Be Too Far Gone to Prevent Civil War”

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Richard Burr (R-N.C.) released the following statement on the Saudi airstrikes in Yemen:

"Clearly, the Saudis and their gulf partners have determined the situation in Yemen presents further danger to regional stability and their own territorial integrity.  I hope their intervention helps to restore some sense of security, but I fear Yemen may be too far gone to prevent an all-out civil war.”
