Yemen, The Afghanistan of Obama
In a message on the militants’ website, from Yemen, a preacher from Al Qaeda born into US is saying that Obama will send troops to Yemen and that it will be the same as Afghanistan for Bush. “If George W. Bush is remembered as being the president who got America stuck in Afghanistan and Iraq, it’s looking like Obama wants to be remembered as the president who got America stuck in Yemen,” Anwar al Awlaki said.
The message has Arabic subtitles and contains pictures of al Awlaki accused of Fort Hood shooting with Nidal Hassan and Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.
Al Awlaki is hiding in Yemen and it is believed by the authorities that he is in contact with the Christmas Day attempt to bomb an US plane.
The US was mocked by the cleric by saying that all the strike of the Americans in Yemen are nothing but a good way to send more recruit to Al Qaeda and that they helped them do a job that would take years.
Al Awlaki said that the Yemen government, who is very well sustained by the US with million of dollars in military help, are stealing from the Obama administration.
The terrorist said that the new security measures at the US airports are difficult to handle which didn’t stop him to travel and will not keep people safe and that US’s fate is compromised.
Al Awlaki has entered the list as principal target of terrorist because of his involvement in the plans of Al Qaeda and the inspiration that he is for the terrorist members.
Six months ago the US wrote him down on a secret list to be killed or captured as the officials say.
He managed during the years to avoid terrorism charges and beside some connections to 9/11 bombing and Fort Hood shooting, the US has nothing else for the reason that he was not an active member for the Al Qaeda. After he was involved in the Christmas Day attempt bombing with Abdulmutallab he switched from the inactive member to top of the list.
Many times Al Awlaki in his messages and preaching hatefully criticized the Muslims that leave in America free and in peace with a nation that is responsible for the absolutism and crimes that were committed against other Muslims.11
