Head of House Homeland Security Committee Disturbed by Events in Yemen

Congressman worried that US has little intelligence coming from war-torn nation.

The Texas congressman also cited the blurring of lines between the various Islamist extremist groups operating in the country as a threat.

The U.S., which recently closed its embassy in Yemen, also decided to pull its remaining special operations forces from the country this weekend because of the escalating violence.

“Good intelligence stops plots against the homeland. Without that intelligence, we cannot effectively stop it. That's what I'm most concerned about,” he added.
