House Intelligence Committee Chairman Turner Statement on Houthi Designation

Today, House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Mike Turner (OH-10) released the following statement:

“The Biden Administration should have never removed the Houthis’ designation as a Foreign Terrorist Organization back in February 2021.

“For weeks, the Houthis have been attacking American troops and cargo ships in the Red Sea.

“Designating the Houthis as a ‘Specially Designated Global Terrorist’ only applies sanctions and avoids taking any real action. It’s time to lead and protect and call them what they are – a Foreign Terrorist Organization.”
