....As Yemeni President and American ally Ali Abdullah Saleh fights for his political life, Al Qaeda operatives are taking advantage of the void and have already stepped in to fill the power vacuum...Al Qaeda leaders like top propagandist and spiritual leader Anwar Al-Awlaki are ecstaticabout the recent developments in Yemen and across the Middle East.
The New York Times reported: "Counterterrorism operations in Yemen have ground to a halt, allowing Al Qaedas deadliest branch outside of Pakistan to operate more freely inside the country and to increase plotting for possible attacks against Europe and the United States, American diplomats, intelligence analysts and counterterrorism officials say.
"In the political tumult surrounding Yemens embattled president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, many Yemeni troops have abandoned their posts or have been summoned to the capital, Sana, to help support the tottering government, the officials said. Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the groups affiliate, has stepped in to fill this power vacuum, and Yemeni security forces have come under increased attacks in recent weeks.
"A small but steadily growing stream of Qaeda fighters and lower-level commanders from other parts of the world, including Pakistan, are making their way to Yemen to join the fight there..."
Obama Administration officials are doing their best to ensure Al-Qaedas success. KBOI reported:
"The Obama administration is helping to grease the skids for the impending departure of Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh. While he remains a strong U.S. ally in the war against al Qaeda and other Islamic extremists, Saleh has worn out his welcome with his own people...Yemeni officials say the U.S. is attempting to mediate a smooth exit for Saleh..."
Al Qaeda already declared South Yemen as an Islamic emirate last week.
Nobody would miss Yemen if it disappeared entirely. Nobody.
One of US history’s most lame ass, idiot-ridden administrations..... =.=
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
So now, when an extremist in yemen mails a package to a synagog in Chicago, it’ll actually get there and explode. Nice job, 0bozo / sarc.
No /sarc necessary. It is another success for obama. He’s acheiving one goal after another is his effort to take down America.
Impending dollar/economic collapse, check.
Impending energy shortages, check.
Impending loss of superpower status, in progress.
Things are going swimmingly for obama and the worldwide communist movement.
Teddy Kennedy was right. (Osama Obama)
Indeed. The president Obama back-stabbed was at least nominally an ally.
nothing to worry about, ITs our pResident pushing democracy on his fellow countrymen, to the detriment of America.
Caliphate building isn’t easy.
Hope and change is spreading all over the world.
The Saudis now have AQ closer to Mecca than they are.
Maybe his highness The Muslum in Chief is a plant for Al Qaeda? After all wasn’t he “indocrinated” as a youth, like all the other radicalized Muslims?
Where is the media? Why is no one speaking up? CAN WE FREAKING SAY IMPEACHMENT HEARINGS?
Crossposting to TM, La Lydia.
That’s racist the muslim brother hood that wants a mosque on ground zero are non secular good people. Al Quada loves us all and wants peace- Barry Soetoro/US NEWS MEDIA
Someone kindly wake me up shake me real hard because I must be having a nightmare in a coma or something because this can’t be real.
Obama is an idiot.
If Obama came on with his teleprompter right now on LIVE TV and fessed up he infiltrated and or he is aiding radical muslims and ate a baby and said he was born on the planet Uranus and his eyes turned pitch red....
Maddow,Matthews nightly news MSM would pop on and bash the GOP and Bush and report Obama’s golf swing and if his daughters walked Bo all awhile saying how fashionable MO looked in her ugly belt in her toxic fake garden.
America has been successfully dumbed down by the media and the public schools.
America is in a coma, and I don’t know if she will wake up, or starve to death.
Forced conversion isn’t far behind.
If I went to the stated NYTimes report of this as stated in the article would it spell out T R E A S O N? Or just say that al quada in non secular and peaceful global loving dudes?
This beyond lame and idiot and involves a US administration helping al qaeda and basically dangering our national security. Obama needs to go. This is past reckless and borders on treason.
You need to be a citizen to commit treason. This is espionage and an attack on our country by a non-uniformed enemy combatant
Obama is a spy
I think Obama is innocent until the muslem brotherhood/al quada move into the WH and proclaim sharia law. And even then he will be called an excellent global leader by our media.
“Maybe his highness The Muslum in Chief is a plant for Al Qaeda?”
I began wondering about that myself after learning the Al Qaeda is supporting the rebels in Libya.
Obama needs to be impeached, tried for treason for (among other things) giving aid and comfort to the enemy, and sent to a SuperMax for the rest of his wretched life.
Geraldo almost got shot there so all is cool nothing to see here.
Hope and change and human blood is spreading all over the world. There, fixed it.
How much in Afghanistan?
How much in Egypt?
How much in Yemen?
How much in Bahrain?
How much in the Ivory Coast?
How much in Iran?
Are we writing angry letters to our representatives?
Obama is removing a Christian from power to replace him with a radical muslim. There will be a blood bath soon like obama’s uncle conducted in Kenya.
Having the president of the most powerful country in the world on your side certainly helps a lot.
It sure appears so.
Pretty much. The actual argument seems to be over whether it is deliberate and malicious, or ignorant, inopportune and clumsy.
obama has took the side of muslims which killed over a thousand Christians this weekend in the Ivory coast.
he forced out an ally who has kept peace in the area for decades plus why was code pink and his pal Bill Ayers over there where he did that talk in Cairo?
Obama waged war in a country without congress getting to vote on it thus an illegal war while he spent his time on vacation in Rio.
Obama has took sides in Libya and waged war for the rebels who have Bin ladens cronies and nutters in it
Obama and his admin have given our best ally the UK nuclear secrets away to Russia.
Obama has snubbed Poland, Czech, UK, Germany and Israel
This is some foreign policy and this does not even mention Corp and corpse, inflate tires, 57 states, make deals with Petrobas so Soros makes billions and guess where that money goes to next year?
This has been nothing but Mickey mouse leadership and then there is the DOJ, their racist policies, suing states for doing the law, ignoring states which violate law, suing a PD to get mroe blacks in to becoming police when they cannot pass a simple exam.
then there is the Dept of Homeland defense and the idiot Janet.
Surely an investigation into the media has to be done, the whole press corp is on a ;love fest , even today one woman asked “Who is to blame if Govt gets shut down?”
Why lady you after talking points form dear messiah?
Not sarcasm, actionable treason.
THE MEDIA ARE A JOKE,
Even today they acted like it was a love fest when their messiah came out and did not ask him one question which is important or pull him up for his lies and attacks while saying we have to work together .
IT’S A DISGRACE ON HOW THIS WHITE HOUSE PRESS CORPS AND THE MEDIA HAVE ACTED FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS BUT THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS HAVE BEEN APPALLING
It’s almost like he’s creating and Islamic Caliphate on purpose...
Nobody would miss Yemen if it disappeared entirely. Nobody.
Disappeared yes, but while it exists on this planet, it is in a very strategic spot. Al Queda in charge now of the southern end of the Suez Canal. Great!
It won't disappear. It will become a haven and homebase for muslim terrorists intent on ending your way of life.
This is insane. For the past ten years we have been foolishly prosecuting a deadly war on the faulty assumption our worst enemy is Al Qaeda and Radical Islam in all it's various malignant iterations. It is becoming increasingly obvious it isn't. It's our own Liberal fifth column which is much deadlier and are running the show.
Silly us, for believing otherwise.
It's as if we threw out the Continental Congress and put Parliament and King George III in charge and then fired Washington and replaced him with Lord Cornwallis. What's going on today makes about as much sense.
I believe the term is "youthful activists for democracy".
That's who I meant was building the caliphate.
That was my point. I wasn't suggesting it would disappear on its own.
