ADEN, Yemen (Reuters) - Al Qaeda killed 16 soldiers in an attack on an army base in south Yemen on Friday, medical and military sources said, in a further show of strength by Islamist militants despite a U.S. campaign of drone strikes to neutralize them.

Looks like the community organizer has some more lies to come up with for Monday’s debate.

....Obama said so...

We need to be rid of this guy right away, not until January. I don't trust him with anything.

Following the vote, send in the Marines, secure the White House.

That makes 3 possible wag-the-dog targets for Zero on the weekend before the debate: Yemen, Benghazi, or northern Mali.

Our Bi-polar, Bi-sexual, Bi-racial, Bi-Citizenship, Marxist, Mudslime, Manchurian Candidate told us these camel humpers are on the run so this story must be false.

Don’t forget the soon to be announced agreement between uncle obie and iran concerning the nukes they are not building. Maybe somebody else built them?

Is there a reason for waiting until the vote?

Even if that’s true, (IIRC) 2/3 of the Senate would have to approve removal of sanctions. There wouldn’t be enough time before the election for verifying the Atomic Ayatollahs’ “sincerity”. That dog won’t hunt.

Very few realize HOW secretly involved US Forces are in Mali and elsewhere. And it’s been going on for a good while.

Hey, yeah, we’ll just clean up Africa, yup..!

Should be cheap.

Too bad that for a lot of folks out there, just the trumpeting of an agreement would be just fine with them. Of course we trust their sincerity. NOT! Hopefully nothing before the Monday night fights. About the only thing uncle obie can say Monday concerning foreign policy is, we’re out of Iraq and ben laden is dead. Should cut down on the debate with the exception of claiming that Romney Ryan are in collusion with the chicoms to sell us down the drain purely for that rich guy to make more money.(sarc off)
