Two Saudis killed in Marib
2012-05-15
[Yemen Post] Yemen's Interior Ministry has revealed that two Saudis were killed in an air raid conducted against Al-Qaeda faceless myrmidons in Marib governate
...the site of what is believed to be the biblical kingdom of Sheba...
, affirming that al least ten bad boyz were potted.

The ministry said the two Saudis were centered in Al-Wadi district of Abyan
...a governorate of Yemen. The region was a base to the Aden-Abyan Islamic Army terrorist group until it dropped the name and joined al-Qaeda. Its capital is Zinjibar. In March 2011, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula declared the governate an Islamic Emirate after seizing control of the region. The New York Times fastidiously reported that those in control, while Islamic hard boyz, are not in fact al-Qaeda, but something else that looks, tastes, smells, and acts the same. Yemeni government forces launched an effort to re-establish control of the region when President-for-Life Saleh was tossed and the carnage continues...
, pointing out that the raid came simultaneously with a military campaign conducted by the army against stronghold of Al-Qaeda faceless myrmidons in some towns of Abyan.

Military sources said the army killed 16 Al Qaeda gunnies on Monday and that six soldiers were killed in festivities with faceless myrmidons in Abyan.

Meanwhile,
...back at the shattered spaceship, Fffflirgoll the Arcturan slithered stealthily toward the control room, where the humans had barricaded themselves...
a military official said one warplane on Monday missed its target in Jaar, accidentally shooting at civilians and wounding two children.

In retaliation for the raid, Al-Qaeda faceless myrmidons have blown up a gas pipeline the town of Azan of Shabwah governorate.

The military carries out a plan prepared by Yemeni and American experts, and Yemen's air and marine forces take part in the campaign.

President Abdurabu Mansour Hadi
...the second and possibly the last president of Yemen, successor to former President-for-Life Ali Abdullah Saleh...
approved an military plan that is under the control of senior military commanders including Minister of Defense Mohammad Nasser Ahmed.

I don't sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar, we talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick...
, John Brennan, discussed with Yemeni officials including President Abdurabu Mansour Hadi mutual relationships and cooperation's between the Yemeni and US militaries, in particular counter-terrorism.

Media sources said the United States sent nearly 45 counter-terror trainers to Yemen this week in an effort to strengthen the Yemeni government's ability to fight al-Qaeda.

Al-Qaeda's affiliate in Yemen was able to exploit the chaos and tool control on some towns, primarily in the south.
