After al-Qaida militants were killed yesterday in Yemen and the U.S. embassy there closed due to security threats, how will the U.S. policy towards Yemen evolve next? We talk with Steven Erlanger, a reporter for The New York Times in Yemen, and Charlie Sennott, executive editor of the Global Post, about Yemen's changing role in the U.S. war on terrorists.
