Yemen is in trouble

U.S. Intelligence officials say Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula has transformed itself from a regional threat into the network's most active affiliate and has global ambitions. That Al Qaida affiliate is based in Yemen, which has long been criticized for allowing western resentment to flourish and terrorist organizations to grow. The Yemeni government is facing a significant problem now. Not only is Al Qaida a growing threat there, but a separatist movement is well underway and rebels are growing more and more bold in their attacks.
