(Underpants) Airline 'Bomber'

Just spent an hour on The Times website reading about 'umar farouk'. Really disturbing.

"...I am really disturbed. I would not want to say anything at the moment until I put myself together..."

(Source: Father of Umar Farouk quoted in one of the articles)

Worth taking some time out to read about this. Enter 'umar farouk' in the search engine of The Times or your news source of choice. The Times has good links with intelligence agencies.

FOSIS' Press Release is worth reading too. I can forward it to anyone who didn't get it or can't find it.

It's all breaking loose in Yemen...

.... fighting in the north, fighting in the south, air strikes, increased foreign media/political interest/pressure. ..

"An American-born radical Islamist, believed to have links to the Fort Hood gunman accused of killing 13 colleagues last month, may have been among 30 militant leaders killed when Yemeni aircraft bombed suspected al-Qaeda hideouts..."

The article is obviously littered with spin, so read knowing what you're reading.

Here's what Anwar al-Awlaki had to say a few days before the airstrike...

I couldn't find a link to the interview on al-Jazeera's website.
