Yemen as the New "al-Qaida" Launching Pad:  Can it Be Salvaged and at What Cost?

More recently he has been engaged to liaise with some of the Yemenis held at the Guantanamo prison complex and has visited Yemen on a series of private missions several times over the past two decades.

I just hope the current administration will thread softly and not want to use force on a sovereign nation. Yemen shouldn't be the next training ground for these idiots who fight for their ideological believe and claim it's religion.

The Yemen is already in the hands of the Taliban and Al Qaida! Unfortunately the futural terrorists will receive their training there!
