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.

Gitmo inmate released

A Yemeni man held at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay for eight years has been sent home after a judge concluded he had no connection to al Qaeda and ordered his release, the Pentagon said Tuesday. 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.
