Yemen Bombs: AQAP, Anwar al Awlaki And The Dick Measuring Service

by | 30th, October 2010

BOMBS on planes. The fear becomes a reality. Well, sort of. The bombs never made it and they weren’t hat strong. Still, Yemen is in the news. Yemen in “the birthplace of al Qaeda”.

The packages were destined for synagogues in the US.  The targets are Jews; any Jews- unless you are on the other side, in which case Jews are importing bombs to kill Americans. Best get with Al Qaeda before the Jews kill you all!

One of the packages was found aboard a cargo plane in Dubai, the other in England. Preliminary tests indicated the packages contained the powerful industrial explosive PETN, the same chemical used in the Christmas attack, U.S. officials said. The tests had not been confirmed.

In the U.S., cargo planes were searched up and down the Eastern Seaboard, and an Emirates Airlines passenger jet was escorted down the coast to New York by American fighter jets.

No explosives were found aboard those planes, though the investigation was continuing on at least two.


One suspicious package, found in the United Kingdom, contained a “manipulated” toner cartridge and had white powder on it as well as wires and a circuit board, a law enforcement source said.

“The size and shape of the printed circuit board are typical to a handset cell-phone-type device,” said Olivier Clerc, the head of application engineering for a wireless phone parts manufacturer, who provided an analysis of the circuit board shown in a photograph obtained by CNN.


President Barack Obama said it could be the work of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), a branch of al Qaeda that has grown in power and notoriety in recent years…

AQAP leader Anwar al Awlaki – a former aide to Osama bin Laden – speaks fluent English, having lived in both the UK and US…

Al Awlaki was first linked to extremism when it emerged he may have acted as a “spiritual guide” to three September 11 attackers.

He was also said to have exchanged emails with US Major Nidal Malik Hasan, who shot dead 13 people at the Fort Hood military base in Texas last December.

AQAP is also thought to be behind the attempt by Nigerian “underpants bomber” Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to blow up a passenger plane heading to Detroit on Christmas Day 2009.

Let the pat down begin…
