It is currently being reported that the US has reopened the embassy in Yemen. What was that all about?
Here is an interesting piece and background report on the current situation in Yemen. As usual there are several points of view and some radical differences. Two of the commentators claim there are less than 400 al Quaeda in Yemen and a new massive US footprint will be counterproductive. That seems to be par for the course.
One of the claims is that Saudi Arabia has far more al Qaeda members than Yemen. Shocked and dismayed are you at that stunning revelation?
Bill Roggio thinks that the problem in Yemen is almost too complicated to do anything and admits he has no answer. That would be interesting to hear from Obama.
Michael Griffin, an expert on al Qaeda reccommends to find the money trail that funds al Qaeda, which in his words clearly leads back to Saudi Arabia. See a trend developing since almost all the 911 attackers were Saudis?
Roggio, discussing the existing Guantanamo detainees, thinks that the Obama Administration will regret their widely publicised policy of closing Guantanmo and will have to reconsider and back down.
