National Security Correspondent J.J. Green brings us an update.
A senior al Qaeda leader in Afghanistan is blaming the Xe security company, formerly known as Blackwater, for being behind a string of deadly attacks in the Pakistani city of Peshawar. In an audio message from Mustafa Abu Yazid said Muslims could not have been behind the attacks, because they are fighting to protect the honor and lives of other Muslims. Peshawar has been under heavy attack in recent weeks. Pakistani and U.S. intelligence officials says the Taliban are behind the attacks.
Reuters is reporting a U.S. drone aircraft fired two missiles into North Waziristan a major al Qaeda and Taliban sanctuary in northwest Pakistan, killing two people on Wednesday. Pakistani intelligence officials say the United States has launched 44 such strikes on suspected militants in Pakistan this year compared with 32 last year. Pakistani forces launched an offensive against militants in the neighboring South Waziristan region on the Afghan border in mid-October.
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.

Reuters reports, Mohammed Odaini is the first Yemeni sent home since U.S. President Barack Obama halted repatriations after allegations that a Yemeni al Qaeda affiliate was behind a failed attempt to blow up a U.S. airplane on Christmas Day.
