Why is it that only TODAY did I learn that fully HALF of the detainees remaining at GITMO are from Yemen? Is this some sort of secret? Why is it that TODAY I learned that one of the Gitmo detainees released in 2007 to Saudi Arabia disappeared following some sort of anti-terror class, and resurfaced on Yemen as the head of Al Quaeda there? Why is it that a man with known connections to Yemen's Al Quaeda was NOT placed on a no-fly list and allowed to fly in an airplane to Detroit? A man who follows the very same Imam who was linked to Hasan, the Fort Hood muslim terrorist? Why is it that Homeland Security seems to busy itself more with Americans who read the Constitution than foreigners who openly call for America's destruction? I, for one, am tired of it. Something's got to change.
Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) Sunday said that Yemen could be the ground of America's next overseas war if Washington does not take preemptive action to root out al-Qaeda interests there.
Lieberman, who helms the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said on "Fox News Sunday" that the U.S. will have to take an active approach in Yemen after multiple recent terrorist attacks on the U.S. were linked back to the Middle Eastern nation.
The Connecticut senator said that an administration official told him that "Iraq was yesterday's war, Afghanistan is today's war. If we don't act preemptively, Yemen will be tomorrow's war."
