The Yemeni military’s offensive in Abyan Province over the past few months has brought considerable attention to the US ground troops deployed to the nation and the constant US drone strikes in the region.
While the US role cannot be underestimated, experts are saying that the focus is distracting from a much large foreign intervention in the country, the Saudi Arabian government’s massive spying operations.
“They can do what the Americans cannot do,” noted one analyst, while diplomats say that Saudi spies with “unlimited funds” have bought loyalty of tribes across inner Yemen and have networks of 30,000 agents nationwide.
The scheme is setting quite well with the US, as officials say that the Americans on the ground in Yemen much prefer working with Saudi spies to actual Yemenis. The new Yemeni regime seems to be shrugging this off, seeing it as the easy way to get foreign aid against their rivals, but the puppetization of the nation is likely to set off more anger among protesters who last year were hoping for democracy, and instead got a US-endorsed single candidate vote.

There's 'Al Qaeda' there. And there are 30,000 'Saudi spies' there. I reckon such coincidences have something to do with why we fill torture dungeons with nobodies.
Saudi Arabia, a backward, despotic, reactionary regime and a close ally of the “freedom-loving and democratic” country of the US sends its spies and informants to mark the protestors of the US installed government in Yemen so that our “freedom loving” government can kill them by drones. Saudi Arabia, Al-Caeda, and the US, birds of a flock…
It is also worth noting that many Al-Qaeda are no more than disguised Saudi intelligence agents working under the Wahhabi Establishment in Dir'iyah, Saudi Arabia (South of Riyadh). the traditional Wahhabi stronghold. The Saud Family and the Al Al-Sheikh descendants of Mohammed Abdul-Wahhab are partners in the Saudi regime since it was "founded" with the support of British intelligence 250 years ago. All international "terrorism" is under the aegis of the Wahhabi Establishment, which has invested US $ 250 billion in propogating the Wahhabi distortions of Islam throughout the world, from their share of the oil revenues of the Saudi Kingdom.
