Despite President Trump’s claimed antipathy to Mideast wars, he has dramatically escalated U.S. counterterrorism activity in Yemen, far beyond the levels he inherited from Barack Obama, according to a new assessment from a leading counterterrorism watchdog.A just-released report from Airwars, one of the most persistent researchers of wars waged under a veil of official secrecy, finds that the U.S. military and CIA launched up to 231 air strikes and, to a lesser extent, ground engagements in Yemen from 2017 to 2020.While the vast spike in attacks on Yemeni targets occurred during Trump’s first year in office, that 231 strike total is enough to nearly tie the 255 such strikes in Yemen during all eight years of Obama’s time in office. It’s the latest indication that Trump’s lethal counterterrorism actions have outpaced Obama’s, despite the widespread perception, encouraged by the president, that Trump disdains endless foreign wars.Similarly, Airwars assesses that the 2017-2020 Yemen strikes have killed at least 121 civilians. Eight years of Obama’s strikes there, Airwars assesses, killed at least 166 civilians.“The year 2017 marked the worst year for reported civilian fatalities in Yemen from U.S. actions since concerted military and CIA strikes began in 2009. However, civilian casualty claims from U.S. actions in Yemen are presently at relatively low levels,” Airwars found.Although drone strikes make up the vast majority of military and CIA strikes in Yemen, Airwars surveys the counterterrorism war in Yemen more comprehensively, including data from the ground that include strikes from AC-130 gunships, manned airstrikes, and ground operations. While ground operations in Yemen, such as a disastrous early 2017 raid that killed a Navy SEAL and Anwar Awlaki’s 8-year old daughter, have amounted to only 3 percent of violent U.S. actions, Airwars director Chris Woods found they accounted for at least 40 percent of total likely civilian deaths.“We’re less focused on the platform that killed them,” Woods said.Further precision is complicated by the extensive secrecy that the Trump administration placed on its counterterrorism activity. In 2019, it officially reversed a meager transparency measure Obama belatedly enacted in 2016 that required public reporting on counterterrorism strikes beyond the declared battlefields of Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan.Airwars found a U.S. security apparatus taking advantage of the restored secrecy. According to its report, Airwars found 31 strikes that took place after mid-2019, the last time U.S. Central Command reported conducting any airstrikes. The report assesses that afterward, “covert and clandestine strikes” conducted by the CIA and U.S. special operations forces played an expanded role in Yemen.“They retreated to the bad old days of secrecy that we saw during the early Obama years and George W. Bush,” said Woods.Although the military has conducted airstrikes in Yemen consistently for over a decade, CENTCOM represented to Airwars that it does not have a dedicated entity for tracking civilian deaths it causes, and instead counts them ad hoc, leading to what many human-rights observers consider a drastic underrepresentation.The CIA declined comment on the Airwars report. CENTCOM and the U.S. Special Operations Command did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

(Bloomberg) -- U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo and Defense Secretary Mark Esper pushed for closer ties with India at a high-level ministerial meeting with their Indian counterparts, at a time when New Delhi is facing a prolonged border conflict with China.“The United States will stand with the people of India as they confront threats to their sovereignty and to their liberty,” Pompeo said after the U.S. officials met with foreign minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar and defense minister Rajnath Singh at the 2+2 meeting in New Delhi Tuesday.The two sides discussed cooperation on pandemic response and challenges in the Indo-Pacific region. They signed a number of agreements including one that will give New Delhi access to U.S. geo-spatial intelligence to help improve the accuracy of automated hardware systems, missiles and drones, according to an Indian defense ministry statement.Pompeo said the challenge of defeating “the pandemic that originated from Wuhan fed into the robust discussions about the Chinese Communist Party.”The talks took place barely a week before the presidential election in the U.S. and at a time when India, a member of the informal four-nation Quad grouping along with America, Japan and Australia, is in talks to de-escalate military tensions with Beijing.“The agreements signed today clearly show that India and the U.S. are not shying away from closer security and intelligence cooperation,” said Rajeswari Pillai Rajagopalan, a distinguished fellow at the New Delhi-based think tank Observer Research Foundation. “It is also a clear message to China that it stands with India in the ongoing conflict. And that there will be more cooperation between nations like India and the U.S. in the Indo-Pacific region.”The Chinese Embassy in New Delhi issued a statement on Wednesday criticizing Pompeo and Esper for “openly attacking China and the Communist Party of China during their visit to India.”“The U.S. officials repeated old lies, attacked and made allegations against China,” statement said. “The Chinese side expresses its firm opposition to it.”Defense InvestmentsIndia’s Singh called on American defense companies to take advantage of the easing of foreign direct investments rules in the sector. The talks are expected to boost New Delhi’s defense purchases from the U.S., currently at $20 billion, and help address its security concerns in the Indian Ocean region as it seeks to compete with China.Pompeo is scheduled to visit Sri Lanka, the Maldives and Indonesia later in the week. The U.S. has been increasingly concerned about China expanding its influence in the region through infrastructure and security investments in smaller neighbors. Beijing committed $126 billion in Central and South Asia between 2000-2017, of which $120 billion was for infrastructure, according to Virginia-based AidData.Meanwhile, India is working with U.S. companies on vaccines and is committed to building “more resilient and trusted” supply chains, Jaishankar said. With over 7.9 million infections India is the second-most virus affected nation after the U.S.India is “now focused on recovery, resilience and reforms,” as it welcomes an expanded partnership with the U.S., Jaishankar added.(Updates with comments from the Chinese embassy in the seventh paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
