    Al-Qaida’s branch in Yemen has offered to pay tens of thousands of dollars to anyone who kills the U.S. ambassador in Sanaa or an American soldier in the country.

    An audio produced by the group’s media arm, the al-Malahem Foundation, and posted on militant websites Saturday said it offered three kilograms of gold worth $160,000 for killing the ambassador, Gerald Feierstein.

    The group said it will pay 5 million Yemeni riyals ($23,000) to anyone who kills an American soldier inside Yemen. It said the offer is valid for six months. …

    :eusa_eh:
    Yemen again at forefront of fight against terror
    Aug 6,`13 -- Yemen was thrust back into the forefront of the international fight against terrorism Tuesday when the U.S. and Britain evacuated embassy staff due to a threatened attack, a suspected U.S. drone killed four alleged members of al-Qaida, and militants shot down a Yemeni army helicopter.

    U.S. and Britain Withdraw Personnel from Yemen
    August 6, 2013 — After days of alarms and embassy lockdowns, the United States and Britain on Tuesday stepped up security precautions in Yemen, with Washington ordering “nonemergency” government personnel to leave and the Foreign Office in London saying it has withdrawn its diplomatic staff in the capital of Sana “due to increased security concerns.”

    Yes, AQAP saw how horribly upset the American right wing got over just four deaths, and how much it fractured the country. That must have been very encouraging to them. So they figure they will really get their money's worth out of another ambassador's death.

    Divide and conquer.

    What was the bounty we put on bin Laden's' head?

    How about the Mullah Omar guy? What was his price?

    Sounds like al Qaeda in Yemen wants to do this on the cheap. Or they're just poor, shit, all they can do is produce a tape recording.......

    Just because I don't buy into the phony scandals djinned up by propagandists and swallowed by rubes does not make me a liberal.

    Benghazi is a fake scandal. Everything the partisan hack media outlets made up about it has proven to be false.

    Obama was not watching the attack from a drone. There was no stand-down order. That was all fake. Lies. Lies told and repeated over and over and over for the past ten months without the slightest bit of shame. After making up a giant stinking pile of lies about the events surrounding the attack, it takes a huge set of balls to get worked up over whether or not Obama blamed the attack on a video or terrorists in the immediate aftermath.

    That's where the real scandal is. Lies, innuendo, and incessessant parroting by non-critically thinking people. This is shameless exploitation of the dead. Standing on the corpses, lying their asses off to create a fake scandal.

    Terrorists attacked the consulate and the CIA annex and four people died. That was one of at least a dozen attacks on US diplomatic missions since 9/11. And yet not one of the people who want to make this phony scandal to be more than it is could answer serious questions surrounding Benghazi and these attacks.

    For instance, they can tell you of the threats the consulate recieved, but they have no comparison to other missions to get a proper perspective. How many threats had all of our other Middle East missions received prior to 9/11/12? Did the threats against the Benghazi consulate stand out in all that noise? The wannabe scandal makers not only have no idea, they don't want to know. That would undermine their fantasy.

    What was George Bush's reaction to each and every attack on our consulates when he was President? He had far more attacks on his watch. The wannabe scandal makers not only have no idea, they don't want to know. That, too, would undermine their fantasy.

    These and several other questions are conspicuous in their complete absence on the part of wannabe phony scandal makers. Rather than seek out facts, the hacks went right to work manufacturing bullshit.

    They played right into Al Qaeda's hands.

    No, actually they see a president that doesn't care if they kill innocent americans. What did obama do during bengazi? He went to sleep and wok up and went to vegas.
