U.S. quietly takes terror war to Yemen



In the midst of two unfinished major wars, the United States has quietly opened a third, largely covert front against Al Qaeda in Yemen. A year ago, the Central Intelligence Agency sent many field operatives with counterterrorism experience to the country, according a former top agency official. At the same time, some of the most secretive Special Operations commandos have begun training Yemeni security forces in counterterrorism tactics, senior military officers said...


US, Yemen reviewing targets for possible strike



The U.S. and Yemen are now looking at fresh targets in Yemen for a potential retaliation strike, two senior U.S. officials told CNN Tuesday, in the aftermath of the botched Christmas Day attack on an airliner that al Qaeda in Yemen claims it organized. The officials asked not to be not be identified because of the sensitive nature of the information. They both stressed the effort is aimed at being ready with options for the White House if President Obama orders a retaliatory strike...


What has happened to the billions of dollars spent on aviation security?

ABC News


Nearly 10 years after the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, questions continue to be raised on security: How should Americans feel about the tens of billions of taxpayer dollars spent to beef up aviation security? And what about all those hours we’ve spent waiting on lines, taking off our shoes and surrendering our liquids and gels — have they been worth it? After the Christmas near-miss, when officials say a 23-year-old Nigerian man carrying explosives nearly succeeded in detonating himself on board a trans-Atlantic flight, many experts say Americans should be outraged...


Next stop: Yemen

by Justin Raimondo


The abortive efforts of the ‘panty-bomber’ have inspired the War Party to focus on a new front in our ongoing and seemingly permanent ‘war on terrorism’: Yemen, a godforsaken outpost of medievalism and sun-scorched desert on the northern shores of the Red Sea, is now taking center stage as al-Qaeda’s latest purported stronghold. Taking advantage of the outcry following the panty-bomber’s near-deadly escapade, the Yemeni government is calling on the US for yet more aid and assistance — in addition to the tens of millions already being pumped into that country — to fight ‘terrorism,’ and specifically al-Qaeda, which is said to have around 300 fighters hiding somewhere in Yemen’s isolated and virtually inaccessible outback...

CIA present in Yemen since 2008: Report

Mohamed al-Anisi had told the Saudi Arabian newspaper Okaz that the Yemeni forces were cooperating with the US military on attacks against al-Qaeda camps.


Senator Lieberman calls for 'preemptive' attack on Yemen

"Iraq was yesterday's war," Lieberman explained. "Afghanistan is today's war. If we don't act preemptively, Yemen will be tomorrow's war. That's the danger we face."


The NEXT War?

Warmongers, like Lieberman - clearly believe that merely dropping bombs on people is effective.


Obama Takes 'War on Terror' to Yemen

By Simon Tisdall

Barack Obama's steely vow to hunt down all those responsible for the attempted bombing of an American airliner on Christmas Day has left a crucial question unanswered: whether it was his personal order to US military forces to attack two suspected al-Qaida bases in Yemen with cruise missiles on 17 December that triggered a "revenge" terrorist operation against the Northwest Airlines plane one week later.


Attack Yemen?

By Congressman Ron Paul

"It's time the American people woke up and started realizing that there's a bit of propaganda going on and quite possibly this incident will not only undermine our personal liberties but will also accelerate our intervention and the violence occurring in the Middle East"...


Cause and Effect in the 'Terror War'

By Glenn Greenwald

If you count our occupation of Iraq, our twice-escalated war in Afghanistan, our rapidly escalating bombing campaigns in Pakistan and Yemen, and various forms of covert war involvement in Somalia, one could reasonably say that we're fighting five different wars in Muslim countries.


Detroit Airliner Terror Incident

A Convenience Theory

By Grant Lawrence

I am not one that sees conspiracies everywhere, but I do like a good Convenience Theory. Like the one that is coming together out of the botched terror attempt by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to blow up an airliner in Detroit just as it was arriving.


US, Yemen gear up for flight 253 "retaliatory" strike

Washington and Sana'a are reviewing targets for a possible retaliation strike on Yemeni soil in the wake of a failed Christmas Day attack on a Detroit-bound airliner, which al-Qaeda in Yemen claims to have organized.


The Strange Case of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab

The closer one looks at the available evidence surrounding the strange case of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the more sinister alleged "intelligence failures" become. As this story unfolds it is becoming abundantly clear that U.S. security officials had far more information on the would-be lap bomber than we've been told.


British intelligence warned US about Abdulmutallab in 2008

British government on Monday claimed the country's intelligence agencies had given the United States information about the failed Nigerian plane bomber long before his attempted attack on Christmas day.


The Man In Orange

My wife Lori and I were passengers and innocent victims of Northwest Flight 253 (Flight 253). - What I would like to emphasize in this article is that not only did we almost lose our lives in the air, but we also almost lost our lives after our plane landed. Let me explain.

Authorities have quietly reversed the official story behind the Christmas Day underwear bomber attack and acknowledged that an accomplice was involved, despite weeks of denial and derision of eyewitness Kurt Haskell’s description of a sharp-dressed man who helped Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab board Flight 253 in Amsterdam.
