    Even though we know yesterday's Al-Qaeda terrorist attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Sana'a, Yemen were targeted at Americans and America, it's ironic that the only American who died was a relative of Jaber El-Baneh, the fugitive seventh member of the Lackawanna Six Al-Qaeda terrorists--homegrown terrorists in Suburban Buffalo. I've written about Jaber El-Baneh--who, in 2005, was allowed to escape a Yemeni prison by Yemeni police and prison guards and who has never faced justice in America for training to foment terrorist attacks on our soil. Mr. El-Baneh trained at the Al-Farooq terrorist training camp run by Osama Bin Laden...

Elbaneh is charged in Buffalo with providing material support to al-Qaida by attending the al-Farooq training camp run by Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan months before the Sept....
