Um…can we hurry up and find these guys, please?
40 Al-Qaeda prisoners escaped a Yemen jail earlier today. The whole thing sounded like something out of an action flick. All of the prisoners seized armed guards while their posse of heavily armed back-up descended on the prison. These are some pretty serious guys as they were behind the failed airplane bombing in Detroit two years ago and they tried to bomb US cargo flights as well.
No reaction yet from Obama, so we don’t know if there’s a plan in place to go get these fugitives. But we hope this isn’t just the first part of some larger scheme. Or maybe we’ve just watched too many episodes of 24.
