AAF: “The Biden Administration Is More Afraid of a Bad Headline Than a Global Threat”

January 17th, 2024

After the U.S. has carried out multiple strikes on the Houthis after they have wreaked havoc in the Red Sea, disrupting international trade, the Biden administration has agreed to designate the Houthis as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist, but not an official foreign terrorist organization, which was the designation in 2021. Advancing American Freedom has been the forefront organization calling for the Biden Administration to redesignate the Houthis as a foreign terrorist organization.

“At the beginning of the Biden administration the Houthis were removed from the list of foreign terrorist organizations, which was a mistake the world has paid for these past months,” said AAF Executive Director Paul Teller. “The Houthis are a foreign terrorist organization, but the Biden administration would rather classify them as an SDGT, to avoid being called out for their about-face. This administration is more afraid of a bad headline than global threats. It’s time to quit playing games and treat US enemies as they deserve to be treated.”
