Letter Sent to State & Defense Depts.

A bipartisan group of Representatives on the House Foreign Affairs Committee sent a letter to leaders of the Departments of State and Defense expressing concern at reports that U.S manufactured weapons have been acquired by unintended actors in Yemen. The letter comes four days after a similar letter was sent by Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

The letter cites several reports that US-made weapons sold to UAE and Saudi Arabia ended up in the hands of unvetted armed groups.

Among others, the letter was signed by both Committee Chairman Eliot Engle (D-NY16) and Ranking Member Michael McCaul (R-TX10).

The letter culminates with a request for a briefing on the situation.
