All the signs are that the Obama administration is cranking up its secret war against al-Qaida in Yemen.
The acknowledgement of increasing intelligence cooperation with the beleaguered Sanaa regime, which resulted in a string of attacks on the jihadists’ bases in which some 50-60 operatives were reported killed or captured over the last two weeks, is a strong indication that the Americans are showing a new determination to eliminate the militants who call themselves al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.
A report carried by The New York Times Monday that the United States has opened a “largely covert front” against al-Qaida in Yemen underlines how Washington perceives the organization to be a serious threat not only to the Sanaa government, battered by a plethora of crises, but to the West, and the United States in particular.
The bizarre — and still largely unexplained — attempt by a Nigerian engineering student, son of his country’s leading banker, to blow up a Detroit-bound Northwest Airlines flight from Amsterdam on Christmas Day has added to U.S. unease about al-Qaeda’s swelling resurgence in Yemen, ancestral homeland of Osama bin Laden.
