Six trucks of explosives 'disappear' in Yemen


www.telegraph.co.uk

Fears of a terrorist strike against Western embassies in Yemen have grown amid claims a convoy of lorries laden with explosives had been smuggled into the country's capital city, Sana'a

In an apparently botched surveillance operation, militants driving six trucks filled with weapons and ordnance succeeded in giving security forces the slip as they entered the city

This story surely smells of a rat. How can a surveillance team possibly lose 6 Trucks packed with explosives?

I'm sure some of you other guys on ATS who know much more about this ever growing situation in Yemen can shed some more light on this.

It seems like some kind of false flag operation about to take place.

Can it be possible that we want Al Queda to seem way worse here in Yemen to give us some kind of excuse to get our feet in the door there too??

Is this from the same intelligence that said Saddam had WMDs? I seriously cannot believe under a new President after getting laughingly screwed twice before, we're trying to commit another atrocity.

Stupid to let them get anywhere close to the city.

They should have stopped them sooner.

Some people just don't have common sense.

I would like to know who the intelligence agency(ies) were that supposedly allowed the trucks to be lost. Western agencies would have more than likely utilizing UAV in the case ground contact was lost, in which case they "let it slip away", if it was Yemeni intelligence I would worry about about a payoff of some sort or an insider. Either way this stinks to high-heaven. I normally side with a more non-conspiratorial tone , but this does sound like a conspiracy. To be sure, I wonder now if there was ever even a convoy being surveilledd if not just a story thorwn out there to cover a possible false flag.

Look at the geographical location of Yemen and you tell me why such a keen interest in financing but no direct military established base.

It seems there's a lot of stuff going on here that I do not understand, and maybe no-one else does either.

something big is brewing up here this week.

I have a bad feeling about all this. Yeman would be a softer target than Iran and with the ressesion and all cheaper objective.

I've been following this story for a while. Here are some threads from a few months ago.

Saudi fighter jets reportedly strike rebel targets in Yemen
posted on 6-11-2009


Reporting from Cairo - Saudi Arabian warplanes attacked Shiite rebel strongholds in northern Yemen on Thursday in a surge of fighting along the border that followed the death of a Saudi security official at the hands of insurgents, according to news reports.

Saudi fighter jets targeted as many as six rebel positions in Yemen and along the mountainous border. Saudi troops reportedly were heading toward the region to secure villages and prevent further cross-border incursions by Houthi rebel forces, which have been sporadically battling the Yemeni government since 2004.


Yemen hails military cooperation deal with US
posted on 11-11-2009

SANAA — Yemen said on Wednesday that it had signed a military cooperation deal with the United States although the US embassy would confirm only that talks had been held on joint counterterrorism efforts.

Yemen's official Saba news agency said that the cooperation agreement was signed during talks in the capital Sanaa on Tuesday between the two countries' militaries.

The news agency also quoted Brigadier General Jeffrey Smith, the commander of the US 5th Signal Command, as renewing Washington's support for Yemen's unity, security and stability.

But US embassy spokeswoman Debrah Smith declined to comment on whether any agreement had been signed.


Yemeni air strike kills 30, targets home of cleric linked to Ft. Hood attack
posted on 24-12-2009

SANAA, Yemen -- Yemeni forces killed at least 30 suspected militants in an airstrike early Thursday on an alleged al-Qaeda hideout in southeastern Yemen, the second such assault in the past week, according to Yemeni security and government sources.

According to some accounts, the strike appeared to target the home of Anwar al-Aulaqi, the extremist Yemeni American preacher linked to the suspected gunman in the Fort Hood Army base attack in November.

That was amazing. I had a general idea of where Yemen was in the Middle East and was vaguely aware of population size and exports. However, as soon as I google imaged "Yemen" my face immediately went into my palm. And I made a couple of faces like
