CAN I GET A YEMEN, SOMEBODY?:

Zarqawi recruits in Yemen rounded up (UPI, 1/24/06)

Yemen has rounded up 19 suspected followers of Abu Musab Zarqawi who they say were planning to carry out terrorist attacks on U.S. targets.

The pro-government September 26 daily quoted a security source as saying the suspects were being interrogated by the general prosecutor annd would be tried in a terrorism court.

The source said the suspects planned to attack places in Yemen frequented by Americans, including the popular Aden Hotel.

He said several members of the cell returned from Iraq upon Zarqawi's instructions to carry out terrorist acts.


Truce! Truce! We said truce!

I hope those poor deluded souls are not being "tortured". Because that would be, um, wrong, right?

Wouldn't it be something if they had caught the s.o.b.'s via NSA intercepts?
