SNIPPET: "A videotape released by al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) earlier this week says that a former Guantanamo detainee is now a commander within the terrorist organization.
The former detainee, Othman Ahmed al Ghamdi, has risen to the rank of operational commander within AQAP as other senior terrorists within the organization have been killed in recent strikes. The tape, which is titled America and the Final Trap, confirms that three AQAP leaders were killed in a strike last December.
According to a translation of the tape obtained by the Long War Journal, al Ghamdi denounces the airstrikes, claiming that America refuses to confront al Qaeda directly on the battlefield. (Of course, al Qaeda itself prefers terrorist attacks against civilians, rather than direct warfare.)
Along with other AQAP leaders featured in the video, al Ghamdi portrays counterterrorism operations in Yemen as part of a crusade led by America against the Muslim world. This is a standard part of al Qaedas propaganda.
Also featured in the tape are Qasim al Raymi, AQAPs military commander, and Fahd al Quso, an al Qaeda operative wanted for his role in the USS Cole bombing.
In the tape, AQAP threatens America with further terrorist attacks."

SNIPPET: “CAIRO - An American-Yemeni cleric whose Internet sermons are believed to have helped inspire attacks on the U.S. has advocated the killing of American civilians in an al-Qaida video released Sunday.
Anwar al-Awlaki has been singled out by U.S. officials as a key terrorist threat and has been added to the CIA’s list of targets for assassination despite his American citizenship. He is of particular concern because he is one of the few English-speaking radical clerics able to explain to young Muslims in America and other Western countries the philosophy of violent jihad.
The U.S.-born al-Awlaki moved to Yemen in 2004...”

What’s up with all these jihadist nutcases?
???How come they all have so much pubic hair on their faces????
All who are surprised by this, please raise your hand ~
Yah...that’s what I thought.
It rubs off...
The ACLU is rejoicing.
Make me President. I’ll line’em up before a miltary tribunal and then shoot’em. On TV!
YEAH! Obama! He lets go people who have rededicated themselves to killing as many of us as possible.
FRIGGIN BRILLIANT BARRY! YOU INCOMPETENT NOOOOB! It’s not like you weren’t TOLD these people are dangerous and WILL go back to their old lives that much more motivated. Right. Everyone knows you were told that, they were really public about making sure everyone knew about it!
This bozo, be it deliberate or sheer accident, is a clear and present danger to this country. Obama will get Americans killed on our own soil. Don’t even start with the whole “it’s a law enforcement thing,” because it isn’t and we know it. These buggers will fly a plane filled with passengers into the World Trade center! TWICE! Bombing it twice in a decade.
And there are other worse ways they can hit us. Heck, sabotaging an oilwell at 5000 feet under the sea just takes another nation capable of doing it. Think there is one that might be corrupted, or coerced enough to do it? Exactly. We don’t know exactly why the DH went down yet, it could be something no one expects.
Yea, Blame Obama.
ADDING to post no. 2:
From now on it’s BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA’S hands that have blood on them.
What’s not to like about the Obama administration? /sarc
Damn straight, and its not like we don’t know its comin, we just don’t know how. I am afraid that we won’t until its too late.... God save us. Just when you think it can’t get any worse, the Administration just goes and makes this nation even weaker. Like that’s gonna help...
Thank you for the bump Lancey Howard.
thanks keith olbermann!
