‘Unsuccessful’ Yemen Raid Reveals Hundreds Of Al Qaeda Contacts, Many Have Infiltrated The West
Some of the valuable intelligence obtained in the Navy SEAL raid in Yemen on Jan. 28 included hundreds of contacts for al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) in the region and the West, a U.S. official told ABC News.
The official, familiar with the intelligence gathered from the raid, told ABC News that the information included contacts for hundreds of AQAP sympathizers in the Middle East and in the West.
Obtained from computers and cellphones seized in the raid, the contacts included email addresses, messaging app identities and phone numbers, according to the official. AQAP has planned terrorist attacks against Western targets.
According to that official, intelligence gathered during the raid, described in a three-page list, provided insight into AQAP’s activities — particularly the group’s recruiting, training techniques and explosives manufacturing — and whom the group is targeting.

Yemen is one of the countries on Trump’s travel ban list and for good reason. It is a know terrorist hotbed. We have ample evidence of terrorists operating in Yemen looking to infiltrate Western nations, yet the leftists insist on leaving our borders wide open.
The fake news media also tried to claim that this raid was unsuccessful after we lost Navy SEAL, Owens in a fierce firefight. The fact that we picked up such valuable intelligence once again proves them wrong.
