A global search for accomplices in the Detroit airliner plot was under way yesterday after an al-Qaeda group based in Yemen claimed responsibility for the operation and the would-be bomber was reported to have said that more attacks were being planned.
Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, a terrorist cell led by a former personal secretary to Osama bin Laden, issued a statement saying that the failed attack by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was a response to American-backed airstrikes on the group in Yemen this month.
Yemeni government forces, acting on US intelligence and using what officials have admitted was American military hardware, launched air raids on suspected militants in the east of the country on December 17 and again on December 24. At least 60 people were understood to have been killed.
Mr Abdulmutallab, the 23-year-old Nigerian who set himself alight in a packed Airbus approaching Detroit on Christmas Day, bought his one-way ticket from a KLM office in Accra, the Ghanaian capital, on December 16, indicating that his attack was planned well before these latest air raids. A US military effort to deny al-Qaeda a stronghold in Yemen has been under way for at least a year.
The fresh-faced engineering graduate was transferred yesterday from hospital in Detroit to a federal prison in Milan, Michigan, where agents questioning him said he told them that he was one of many bombers being groomed by the Yemeni alQaeda affiliate to attack American-bound aircraft, according to ABC News.

Question is: Is the WH listening or just ignoring?
This was a MAJOR national security breach and an attack (even if failed in part) upon the United States of America, on the day we celebrate Jesus' birth.
And they are asleep at the wheel, either through incompetence or political correct design.
Hey guys, SURPRISE! Wake up and smell the Nigerian coffee, you dingbats!
An African muslim like you know who.
They're mantra will continue to be "Bush's fault"......bet the big bucks on it.
GOP you are the boss! hey that looks like obozo other half brother!
Great big grammatical faux pas....."Their". (Leftover spiked eggnog alert.....)
Oh, nonsense. What does he know? Didn't he hear Obama saying that he was an 'isolated extremist'???
I bet you say that to all the GOPs, you FreeperFlirt!
And then people will be very angry and heads will roll.
Unfortunately, it takes the deaths of many Americans before people will take it seriously.
I would not advise Muzzies to scratch themselves in carry states.
whatever you say, aboo foolah moolah kalebaka-waka-kebab
Tell those that follow you to get a real name first.
EXACTLY. No one will start profiling until then.
Mark 5:9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.
Mark 5:10 And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.
Mark 5:11 Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.
That explains the media.
Journalists? Credibility? Give me a break. They lost that a LONG time ago when their goal became nothing more than to tear down those with whom they disagreed and elevate those they supported.
I tired of their thoroughly dishonest reporting a long, long, time ago.
Journalists: trash even lower than congressmen and definitely far lower than used-car salesmen (I've been treated equitably by some of the latter).
Probably not the 1st.
Nah. Give them Nigerian Zyklon B instead. / sarcasm
Now ask me how I REALLY feel about jernalists! ;-)
But a bit more seriously, if some planes with a few "journalists" aboard are brought down, they might change their mind. (collective singular intended) But OTOH Daniel Pearl was only a Jew so maybe they won't.
Yeah, but according to the Obammy administration, there is no larger design here. Everything’s cool. Except all white passengers are going to have wear locked handcuffs anytime they’re on board a passenger airliner.
Dont flatter yourself Mutallab, you are one peon in 2000 years of jerks.
BTW hows the nutsack?
Now as I see it we no longer have a cowboy in the White House, he may be just a sock puppet but he's no cowboy. He's also a world citizen since no body knows for sure where he was born. Lo and behold.... We STILL have a problem with terrorists!!!!! I guess we need to be even nicer to them ... yeah double down , that's the ticket.
