White House divided over war crimes in yemen

"Saudi Arabia’s airstrikes in Yemen, conducted with U.S. assistance, are alleged to have killed at least 1,500 civilians, dividing members of the Obama administration over whether the U.S. risks being accused of abetting war crimes in a bombing campaign that could ultimately strengthen Islamist militants." Some in the White House believe that killing 1,500 civilians are in US interest while others say it is not.  A healthy debate indeed.
