Al-Qaeda in Yemen Releases Video – Blames Obama for Failed US Hostage Rescue
Remember when Barack Obama said, “Al-Qaeda is defeated“?
Yeah, that wasn’t true, either.
Today Al-Qaeda in Yemen released a video blaming Barack Obama for the failed US hostage rescue last week.
Al-Qaeda has blamed US President Barack Obama for the deaths of two hostages – an American photojournalist and a South African teacher – during a failed rescue attempt by US troops over the weekend.
Luke Somers and South African national Pierre Korkie were killed by their captors on Saturday when US and Yemeni troops stormed an al-Qaeda base in southwestern Yemen.
“Obama made the wrong decision, and signed the death warrant for his American compatriot [Somers]”, Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) official Nasser bin Ali al-Ansi said in the video released on Thursday.
** Al-Qaeda also bombed a US base in Yemen today.
