Al Qaeda’s Yemen Connection

Blog-friend, Jane Novak publishes an important piece of work in the Weekly Standard which documents the warm relationship Yemen has with al Qaeda.

THE AMERICAN ATTEMPTS to rehabilitate the Yemeni regime of Ali Abdullah Saleh have not succeeded. Yemeni authorities recently pardoned Jamal Al-Badawi, convicted mastermind of the 2000 USS Cole bombing. All the terrorists who bombed the American warship and killed 17 American sailors are free, except those dead or in U.S. custody.

What is extremely cool about this is that Jane started blogging in response to 9-11 and dedicates her time and resources to combatting militant Islam with Yemen in particular.

Political prisoners have been freed and nacent democracy movements have been encouraged directly by her efforts.


  1. 8-boy…don’t you have a party to go to in the Castro district instead of hanging out here dressed as the Spelling Nazi?

    Oh SHIT…they just canceled your party.

    Brian, you are already banned by at least four foreign governments by my count and Iceland is voting on you tomorrow…

  2. No need to defend me Nigel and Brian, although it is appreciated.

    Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do.

    On her deathbed, my 7th grade English teacher cursed me and promised that her spirit would haunt me through bitchy people.

    The curse is with me to this day.

  3. Little Gordy,

    You missed that split infinitive in the first paragraph.

    You really shouldn’t be hanging around with Preston and Brian. They are bad influences on your grammar and posture.

    Now come to the front of the class and dust my erasers.
