U.S. joins Yemeni anti-terrorism units to hunt Saudi bomb maker

Maybe something is going on?

Good luck with this though, I think it will be very difficult to do anything in Yemen that will put Al Qaida or any of it's members in harms way !

But you have to start somewhere.

SANAA, Nov. 2 (Xinhua) -- A U.S. team of anti-terrorism experts joined Yemeni anti-terrorism units on Tuesday in a mission to hunt down the suspect behind sending two bomb shipments to the United States last week, a Yemeni official of anti-terror units told Xinhua.

The U.S. team arrived late Monday to help Yemeni counter- terrorism forces to capture the suspect of parcel bombs, who is believed to be a Saudi national bomb maker identified as Ibrahim al-Asiri.

"The mission was also designed to capture the U.S.-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, who was put on hit list by Washington and was trailed earlier Tuesday in absentia by a Yemeni security court in Sanaa for links to terrorist crimes," the official told Xinhua on condition of anonymity.

"The joint mission will be carried out in eastern and southern provinces of Marib and Shabwa, in which U.S. unmanned predators and agents with CIA in the U.S. Embassy in Sanaa will take part," he added.
