This unique and authoritative ebook compilation includes ten informative government reports, studies, and documents about the ongoing terror threat posed by Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) in Yemen:
AQAP Background and Current Information - AQAP emerged in January 2009 following an announcement that Yemeni and Saudi terrorists were unifying under a common banner, signaling the group’s intent to serve as a hub for regional terrorism in Yemen and Saudi Arabia.
The Exploitation of a Weak State: Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula In Yemen - Yemen is a weak state, as the government does not have the capability to assert effective control over the entirety of its territory.
Al Qaida and Yemen - Is Our Current Policy Good Enough? - The United States, with the support of the United Kingdom and the neighboring Arab nations, must act now to eliminate and marginalize Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula and capture or kill the Al Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula's leadership within the borders of Yemen. Once this is difficult task is accomplished then the economic, governance, and military cooperation and assistance programs can really become the long range strategic focus.
Denying Al Qaeda Safe Haven in a Weak State: An Analysis of U.S. Strategy in Yemen - This study finds that the rapid buildup of Yemen's security apparatus prior to the implementation of government reforms has perpetuated the authoritarian rule within the country, further entrenching AQAP within the marginalized southern population.
The Struggle for Yemen and the Challenge of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula - President Hadi's efforts to rebuild the Yemeni military have been particularly difficult because of the deep factionalism within these forces and the presence of senior leaders with deep ties to the old regime. Hadi, therefore, has proceeded forward in a serious but incremental manner.
Yemen: Background and U.S. Relations - CRS report updated in late 2014 - This report provides an overview and analysis of U.S.-Yemeni relations amidst evolving political change in Yemeni leadership, ongoing U.S. counterterrorism operations against Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) operatives in Yemen's hinterlands, and international efforts to bolster the country's stability despite an array of daunting socio-economic problems.
Al Qaeda-Affiliated Groups: Middle East and Africa - After more than a decade of combating Al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan, the United States now faces an increasingly diverse threat from Al Qaeda affiliates in the Middle East and Africa and from emerging groups that have adopted aspects of Al Qaeda's ideology but operate relatively or completely autonomously from the group's senior leadership.
Drones over Yemen: Weighing Military Benefits and Political Costs - In the case of Yemen, drones are not popular with the local population, but they do appear to have been stunningly successful in achieving goals that support the United States and Yemeni national interests by helping to defeat the radical group al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).
A False Foundation? Al Qa'ida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), Tribes and Ungoverned Spaces in Yemen - Efforts to understand and evaluate appropriate policy responses to the multiple crises unfolding in Yemen have often met with a major challenge: the seemingly intractable nature of the terrorist threat against the U.S. homeland given Yemen's weak central government and growing instability.
Tribal Militias: An Effective Tool to Counter Al-Qaida and its Affiliates? - The capability that tribally-based militias provide may be one of the most effective tools against Al-Qaida, and may offer a cost-effective mechanism serving as a force multiplier for U.S. forces.
