"The New York Times reported on Monday that the closure of the embassies was the result of intercepted electronic communications between Ayman al-Zawahri, who replaced bin Laden as head of al Qaeda, and Nasser al-Wuhaishi, the head of AQAP". My friend BEAN showed this to me yesterday as I have been too preoccupied with everything else. Not anywhere I'd ever wish to be. It's sad our Embassies are closed, but safety is paramount. We don't need a repeat performance.

gotta show everybody that the nsa spies are good. who couldn't have guessed obama was going to have a crisis come out to support his games. there is an easy fix to all this muslim garbage we get out of their countries and remove all muslims from ours. never the 2 should mingle. muslims can only live with other muslims and then they still kill. we don't need or want their oil. we have our own.

According to "YemenPost", the US gave Yemen $337 million in aid between January and August 2012. WHY?
Yemen's Total Fertility Rate is 5.2, it's government surely isn't spending on family planning.

Because I'm in a different time zone and read Care2 news posts about 18 hours later, I have heard additional news to this. The US has convinced most other western countries with embassies and people working in Jemen to leave the country. Most have followed suit and with no chance of westerners getting hurt or of having them witnessing what is happening, drone strikes have been carried out and unknown sources have reported that 6 'alleged Al-Qa'ida members' have been killed. No civilian casualties were mentioned.

Makes me wonder if a war by drones is has been started in Yemen.

Sad to see people using this news to criticize the President and question his motive ...... most probably the very same people who would criticize him if everything does go "pear-shaped" and he had done nothing. Forget the politcal dogma folks - concentrate on the safety of possible innocent victims !!!

niestety, choć wydaje się, że człowiek w XXI wieku powinien zmądrzeć po tylu okrutnych wojnach, terroryzm nadal ma się dobrze
