By Micah HalpernI've Been Thinking:
Yesterday in Sanaa, Yemen 300 Al Qaeda prisoners attempted to break out of prison. They nearly succeeded.
An official described the jail break this way: "almost 300 al-Qaeda prisoners, armed with knives and iron bars, attacked prison guards, injuring some of them."
But the guards and reinforcements arrived in time and prevented the 300 al Qaeda terrorist from breaking out and rejoining their networks.
Yemen is now the world center for al Qaeda.
The Yemeni government is teaming with the United States and other Western and Arab countries to combat the vicious spread of al Qaeda.
Prison breaks are relatively common. Until recently, this break might have been successful. But now Yemen is far better organized - they are fighting back and they are controlling al Qaeda.
Good for Yemen. Good for us all.
