Expanding the "War on Terror" in Yemen

Michael Horton, Truthout: "In an August 14 article entitled, 'Secret Assault on Terrorism Widens on Two Continents,' The New York Times reported on how the US is expanding its counterterrorism role in Yemen.

The long struggle against Al Qaeda since the 9/11 attacks has taken many twists and turns. Now it has even led to the forced evacuation of an entire city of 80,000 people — in Yemen, the ancestral home of Osama bin Laden. The evacuation took place last week when the Yemeni military laid siege to the southern city of Loder in order to flush out a group called Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), which may have 300 to 500 fighters. The battle, which left dozens killed on both sides, is the latest escalation of a joint effort by the Obama administration and the Yemeni government to rid the country of this dangerous affiliate of Mr. bin Laden’s core group in Pakistan...
