    Yemeni Forces Raid Al-Qaida Hideout, Clashes Erupt - ABC News

    Yemeni forces raided an al-Qaida hideout and set off a gunbattle Wednesday as the government vowed to eliminate the group that claimed it was behind the Christmas bombing attempt on a U.S. airliner.

    The fighting took place in an al-Qaida stronghold in western Yemen, haven for a group that attacked the U.S. Embassy here in 2008, killing 10 Yemeni guards and four civilians. A government statement said at least one suspected militant was arrested during the clashes.

    "The (Interior) Ministry will continue tracking down al-Qaida terrorists and will continue its strikes against the group until it is totally eliminated," Deputy Interior Minister Brig. Gen. Saleh al-Zawari told senior military officials at a meeting in Mareb, another province believed to shelter al-Qaida fighters

    Hmmm...... These bases were there in the last admin, so why could not we go after them then? Perhaps President Obama's trips to talk to other leaders is paying off?

    "Shortly after Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula was formed, Saudi Arabia announced a list of 85 most wanted militants outside its borders. It said 11 of them were former Guantanamo detainees who had gone through its rehabilitation program."

    As we focus on Akl-Queda, I worry about splinter groups and copycats taking advantage of our single-mindedness.

    We're only making new terrorists, this will serve as a recruitment drive to bring more people to Al Qaeda

    Good for Yemen. But why is it they waited until now? I doubt Obamas soft voice and overseas contingency operation had much to do with it.

    Gotta wonder........

    Obama has destroyed the mythology of islamic extremism, and this has changed the political situation so countries like Pakistan and Yemen can go after the extremists.

    There are one billion muslims in the world.

    For this reason only the muslims can defeat terrorism.
