GOTTA LOVE THAT COWBOY PRESIDENT:
Yemen air strikes kill 15 militants linked to al-Qaida: Bombing raid on Ansar al-Sharia group's base reported to have been carried out by US fighter planes (Damien Pearse and agencies, Saturday 10 March 2012, The Guardian)
Ansar al-Sharia is inspired by al-Qaida but the precise nature of its ties to the global network are unclear. The Yemeni government says they are one and the same.Al-Arabiya television reported that Friday's raid was believed to have been carried out by US planes.Working with the Yemeni authorities, the US has repeatedly used drones to attack militants from al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.
Unfortunately for Mr. Obama, foreign affairs successes are only ever a negative in re-election races.
