al Qaeda calls Ambassador’s murder “a great event,” urges action, including in West
Yep. Sure sounds as though Obama’s charisma and life experience in the Middle-East
Al-Qaida’s branch in Yemen praised the killing of the U.S. ambassador in Libya in a Web statement Saturday and called for more attacks to expel American embassies from Muslim nations.
The statement suggests al-Qaida was trying to co-opt the wave of angry protests in the Muslim world over a film produced in the United States denigrating the Prophet Muhammad.
“What has happened is a great event, and these efforts should come together in one goal, which is to expel the embassies of America from the lands of the Muslims,” the group said. It called on protests to continue in Muslim nations “to set the fires blazing at these embassies.”
Al-Qaida in Yemen is considered by the U.S. the most dangerous and active of the terror network’s affliates after it plotted a series of attempted attacks on U.S. territory, including the Christmas 2009 failed bombing of a passenger jet.
