Video shows large al Qaeda meeting in Yemen - CNN.com
I thought al Qaeda was on the run. Can anyone say Benghazi? Our foreign policy is a complete disaster, and I thought Biden was specifically chosen as Obama's running mate because he was the master of the universe on foreign policy. Plus we have a laughingstock running the State Dept. It's no damn wonder Putin keeps punching us in the face. If they had been able to connect the dots, they'd have had a drone on this party.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.
U.S. officials won't comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States.
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.
The video started appearing on jihadist websites recently, drawing the attention of U.S. officials and global terrorism experts. U.S. officials say they believe it's authentic.
