Next Year in Yemen

Headline Sunday: Brennan: Some Guantanamo detainees will go to Yemen

Headline today: Freed Guantánamo inmates are heading for Yemen to join al-Qaeda fight

Nothing to see here, move along.

Update - New headline this afternoon, U.S. suspends Guantanamo prisoner transfer to Yemen
(emphasis mine):
"While we remain committed to closing the (Guantanamo) facility, a determination has been made, right now any additional transfers to Yemen is not a good idea," said White House spokesman Robert Gibbs.
Key words are "right now." Like I said, "Next year in Yemen."

  1. I have already expressed my thoughts on the one statement that has me very p'd off on other blogs. I am stupefied to think that the clowns in the White House actually believe that AQ formed in the Arabian Peninsula as a reflexive action to the existence of Guantanamo Bay.... that is out and out BS.

    OBL was born in Yemen. The strike on the USS Cole came from operatives with links to AQ in Yemen. The Yemeni AQ have been fighting the Saudi governmnet for at least the past 10 years. Have people forgotten the massive attacks in Riyadh? These attacks were several years ago and they were carried out by AQ operatives.

    The mastermind of the attack on the Sari Club in Bali, Abu Bakir Bashir, an imam is from Yemen.

    The imam responsible for giving advice to Hasan the Ft. Hood terrorist fled to Yemen, after the attacks on the WTC....

    A lot of roads lead back to Yemen and they have done so for more than 10 years, so how come it is only now that Yemen is being recognized as a terrorist front?

    What really gets me though is the really big reason for listing Yemen as always being the home of terrorism.... Mohammed the pedophile and non-prophet (except maybe of Satan) was born in Yemen.
