On the eve of the anniversary of the al Qaeda's attack on the USS Cole
, a security official for the US embassy in Yemen was slain
Masked gunmen shot dead a Yemeni man on his way to work at the U.S. embassy in Sanaa on Thursday, a security source said, the latest in a wave of assassinations in the Arab state where Washington is battling al Qaeda militants.
The attackers on a motorcycle opened fire on a car carrying Qassem Aqlan – who headed an embassy security team – in the center of Yemen’s capital, the source told Reuters.
“This (assassination) operation has the fingerprints of al Qaeda which carried out similar operations before,” said the source who asked not to be named.
that there's contradictory descriptions in the MSM of the employee who was victim of the attack. I expect there will soon be a clearer report available, but for now, what's clear is that the al Qaeda is still a very dangerous threat in the mideast, yet the Obama administration's doing nothing to combat al Qaeda properly.
