Yemen charges US-born radical cleric al-Awlaki

Sorry Yemen, Putting our Enemy on your enemy list is just not going to cut it!

How about you actively go after Al Qaida, How about you step it up and do what is right !
It's a nice thought but I don't see these assholes doing anything about the Al Qaida problem in Yemen, Having a happy little trial in absentia is just a show, It might work for the Obamasiah but it ain't gonna work for the rest of the United States.

SAN'A, Yemen — Yemen put a U.S.-born radical cleric on trial in absentia Tuesday, accusing him and two other men with plotting to kill foreigners and of being members of al-Qaida.

It was the first formal legal action by Yemen against Anwar al-Awlaki, and came as the country faces heavy pressure to crack down on the terror network following the interception of two mail bombs intercepted in Dubai and Britain last week.

Prosecutor Ali al-Saneaa announced the charges against al-Awlaki as part of a trial against another man, Hisham Assem, who has been charged accused of killing a Frenchman in an Oct. 6 attack at an oil firm's compound where he worked as a security guard.

Assem, 19, was present in court, but al-Awlaki and a third suspect, Osman al-Awlaki, were charged in absentia. The hearing was held amid tight security measures at a courthouse in downtown San'a.
