Skip to comments.Detroit terror attack: United States 'plans retaliatory attacks on Yemeni soil'
Posted on 12/30/2009 11:48:21 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Intelligence efforts are said to be focused on finding those involved in the plot to get Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab on the Northwest Airlines plane with explosives in his underwear.
Security officials are also likely to identify other "high value" al Qaeda targets who could be the target of strikes.
The suggestion comes as US President Barack Obama condemned the "systemic failures" that saw intelligence about a Nigerian trained in Yemen planning a bomb attack squandered with the potential cost of hundreds of lives.
Mr Obama called for "lessons to be learned" over the failures to link up intelligence. The terror suspect has told his interrogators that there are many more insurgents preparing to attack the West diplomats have revealed that at least six British students have been arrested and deported from Yemen in the last year for allegedly trying to join radical Muslims.
America is now said to be focusing its fight against al Qaeda on Yemen in a bid to enforce the point that "attacking America does not go unpunished", a security source told The Guardian.
"First we have to find out who put Abdulmutallab on the plane with the bomb," the US official, who works alongside intelligence organisations, is reported as saying.
"He's providing some leads and we're not dealing with an unknown quantity here. We've been watching and listening to what goes on in Yemen and we may have pieces of the puzzle already and just need to fit it together.(continued)

They can run but they’d just die tired. ;-)
I’m glad Zero understands the value of the element of surprise.
The Yemen government basically gave the US a open door. No one in the government cares for the crowd involved in training operations (they aren’t paying any bribes so why bother worrying about them). This will unsettle the guys and probably force them to pack up from Yemen.
“...diplomats have revealed that at least six British students have been arrested and deported from Yemen in the last year for allegedly trying to join radical Muslims.”
They really and truly need to send them back. Why do we have to have them here - enough already.
Wag the dog is on the way.
“Anyone working at a Yemeni used camel lot, baby formula or aspirin factory might want to skip work for the next few days...”
I needed a laugh. :) Somehow I can’t see Barry giving the permission to strike. What will his leftie friends say...I guess we need to get ready for an big anti-war protest...yeah right.
Yemeni Terrorists - “Thanks for the warning!”
I think poorly targeted cruise missile strikes are the preferred strike style of Dem Presidents
Ok, no one say anything until I give the signal; theyll never know we were coming
Macho posturing for the masses by a girlie-boy leader who considers only conservative Americans the true enemy.
Shouldn’t he just be arresting these people and bringing them to trial anyway?
Perhaps the Sissy in Chief will send in a few SEALs to advise them of their rights.
All would be forgiven if Barack sends Bill Ayers to Yemen to infiltrate the terrorist training camp and detonate his exploding underpants. As long as Barack has terrorist friends we may as well get some use out of them.
But love and peace???????? Will the Europeans protest in mass? Will the love that Bammy brought to the world be buried??? What about the children????/s
It seems like zero is lashing out in disorganized anger.
He’s flailing about in his failure. Zero just let 6 more Yemeni terrorists go this past week.
But, by all means, keep that trial in NYC and get Gitmo closed.
The American public HAS learned a lesson after one year of you in office, you bastard. You are a lying Marxist Muslim and nothing you say can be trusted.
Watch what this bastard does, NOT what he says.
I’m hoping I’m not having a vision like the poster that dreamt of a 747 sized aircraft sticking out of a skyscraper several months before 9/11 but I just had a weird dream that Americans by law had to speak and write French, like we were now a French speaking country or rather one that had a major part of the Government speaking French, my after awake thoughts were that Canada somehow managed to take over the US or that France has its agents in the Whitehouse issuing orders.
Another Clinton asprin factory bombing.
Zer0 is huffing and puffing. He was going to sending GITMO criminals to Yemen. He’s bluffing.
Uh, didn't Barack's buddy Bill Ayers also try to bomb Detroit? A Detroit police station if memory serves me right.
