Interview simon hogan, from the U.K.
Simmons and the House of Saud have always tried to play up their relationship as a military alliance, but it is clearly a relationship of mutual benefits. The Saudis have tried to expand their military footprint in Yemen by sending their top pilots in military aircraft and warships to the country, and have paid the U.S. an annual stipend of more than $200 million.

In December, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) criticized Clinton for failing to criticize the Saudi-led alliance with Saudi Arabia, while in June Clinton also joined Saudi Arabia in supporting the Obama administration's Saudi-led war in Yemen.
"There are certain things that you can do to criticize our relationships, and some of them are good," said Clinton when asked about the Saudi-led war, according to USA Today.
The Republican senator asked Clinton whether "she can't answer [his] question without playing us into these kinds of bad stories that w
