Obama aide says al Qaeda may plan Yemen attack

So will this be obama’s fault or bushes? I mean they have intelligence that something may happen. We were quick to blame bush so will it be the same for obama? I also read yesterday that they know of possible plans for attacks here in the US. I am still trying to find the story.


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States has indications al Qaeda is planning an attack against a target in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa, a senior aide to President Barack Obama said on Sunday.

John Brennan, Obama's assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, told CNN's "State of the Union" that "there are indications that al Qaeda is planning an attack against a target in Sanaa."

The United States closed its embassy in Sanaa on Sunday, saying it had taken the action "in response to ongoing threats by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula to attack American interests in Yemen."

  • Obama also knew their was a holiday airline threat. NOTHING, let me be perfectly clear, NOTHING was done to increase any security or even warn the people.

    Obama needs to man up and accept responsiblity. Blaming others is for kids.

  • oh its AAALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL Bush's fault. It couldn't possibly be Obama. Never mind mind that EVERY president has inherited something (or LOTS of things) crappy from the previous admin (and I dont remember any of the other presidents blaming the last president in every other speech..........OTHER people might have but OTHER presidents have shown more class!). Like Clinton didnt have something to do with making America a joke to the rest of the world ALSO all that Anti American sentiment built up and exploded and ALLL of 9/11 was planned and executed during Bush's first 9 months in office. As far as I am concerned Obama's butt is on the line for every piece of legislation he has signed and every attack there is. If the Buck stopped with ALL the OTHER presidents then it stops with HIM too!

    He won't be but so many Liberals have blamed Bush for 9/11 some actually think in a few short months he planned it or just let it happen. They also think he made a hurricane and targeted people in Katrina even though he released funds to fix the levies the state and city squandered the money to fix Burbon street up not caring. So if Bush is blamed for that why not blame Obama is the thinking I guess for some.

  • It's Bush's fault. In 2 years when things are going badly, it will be Bush's fault. In 100 years when someone's hovercraft breaks down, it will be Bush's fault. Guess who is going to be blamed for the war in Europe............the first war in Europe.......Bush!!!
