OOPS, WE'RE ON THE WRONG SIDE...:

Saudi-Led Coalition Says Warplane 'Wrongly Targeted' Sanaa Funeral (RFE/RL, 10/15/16)

The White House said on October 14 that it is reconsidering its support for a Saudi-led coalition that has been bombing rebels in Yemen after what one official called the "egregious" attack.

A top administration official told media privately that Washington was particularly angered because "important figures who are part of the reconciliation process" in Yemen were among those killed in the Sanaa funeral attack.

Senior U.S. officials who briefed reporters on October 14 said all U.S. assistance to the Saudi-led coalition is under review because of the attack, including intelligence, logistics, and refueling.
