If al Qaeda’s goal is to make the Obama Administration look small, weak, ineffective and defenseless right before the election, they’re doing a masterful job:
A masked gunman assassinated a Yemeni security official at the U.S. Embassy in a drive-by shooting in the capital Sanaa on Thursday, officials said.
The Yemeni officials said the killing bore the hallmarks of an Al Qaeda attack, but it was too early to determine if the group was behind it. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
The assassination resembles other attacks targeting Yemeni intelligence, military and security officials in retaliation for a wide military offensive by Yemen’s U.S.-backed government against Al Qaeda’s branch in the country.
Qassem Aqlani was on his way to work when he was gunned down by a terrorist on a motorcycle who drove right up, murdered him, and drove away.
If you know al Qaeda is targeting embassy staff, especially senior embassy staff, why aren’t they afforded even minimal protection? I can’t wait for Obama to be fired.
