In the meantime here are some articles to read.
First up is the text of President Salih's interview (H/T: The Majlis.)
Next is an interview with the governor of Shabwa in al-Sharq al-Awsat. (I originally had high hopes for this, but I didn't learn much other than some geography.)
Finally, David Kenner at FP has this good rejoinder to a post I wrote earlier commenting on an earlier post of his - if you can follow the thread. His point is well taken.
