Al Qaeda Hold Largest Meeting In Years In Yemen

From CNN:

Unsettling video shows large al Qaeda meeting in Yemen

By Barbara Starr | April 16, 2014

Washington (CNN) — A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn’t know about it or couldn’t get a drone there in time to strike…

We suspect that all of our spy satellites were tied up doing more important things. Such as spying on people’s Tweets or looking for signs of man-made global warming.

But who can blame them? After all, Al Qaeda is on the run. We no longer have anything to fear from them. Obama told us so. Repeatedly.

In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda’s crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen. Al-Wuhayshi, the No. 2 leader of al Qaeda globally and the head of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, has said he wants to attack the United States. But in the video, he looks unconcerned that he could be hit by an American drone…

He must not be on Mr. Obama’s list. He’s probably not even a Tea Party supporter.

The video shows al-Wuhayshi addressing more than 100 fighters somewhere within Yemen, Cruickshank said, a restive [sic] nation on the southwestern portion of the Arabian Peninsula. The al Qaeda leader, he said, is "taking a big risk in doing this."

But he doesn’t mince words about his mission. In a speech to the group, al-Wuhayshi makes it clear that he’s going after the United States, saying "We must eliminate the cross. … The bearer of the cross is America!"

Are they sure this wasn’t a meeting of the ACLU?

U.S. officials believe the highly produced video is recent…

"The U.S. intelligence community should be surprised that such a large group of al Qaeda assembled together, including the leadership, and somehow they didn’t notice," said Peter Bergen, CNN national security analyst…

The intel community didn’t notice because none of these guys were playing any online war games, like ‘The World Of Warcraft.’ The Muslim terrorists seem to prefer real life war.

  1. Interesting that our Blind To Everything media would tell us this .. if in fact it is what media reports say it is.

    Hint: Bloomberg disbands Muslim watch simultaneous to a video clip of an angry, large Al-Qaeda meetup? Color me skeptical but if I wrote this in a work of fiction my readers would close the book and be through with me ..

    Serenity:

    “So, you think it’s a trap?”
    “Did you see us fight?”
    “No.”
    (pause) “Trap”

      Jack, Comrade Bloomburg is no longer mayor the the rotten apple, some ass clown named DeBlasio is and he’s the one who disbanded the unit. Not that Bloomburg wouldn’t have, he probably just didn’t think of it, he was too busy checking out how large everyone’s sodas were.

  2. Right of the People

    <<>>

    That’s because he knows his Mooselimb brother in the White House won’t allow it. He probably called Barry the Bozo to check before he scheduled the meeting.

    Why Yemen?

    Given the later articles, if they just all made their way into the US they could hold their meeting openly in Philadelphia.

      largest meeting in years(?)….a larger meeting occured during a break-out session at the last UN summit. If Al Qeada had their own country, I bet they would be just as peaceful as….oh never mind.

    target of opportunity.
    a military target “visible to a surface or air sensor or observer, which is within range of available weapons and against which fire has not been scheduled or requested.” A target of opportunity comes in two forms; “unplanned and unanticipated”.

  6. yadayada

    why not just simply meet in new york whenever they want? better food, better hookers, more booze, more strip joints, no interference from law enforcement. eric holdem will even send his SS troops (ahem oops) I mean DOJ agents to guard the doors for them.
