Obama Approved Secret Operations in Yemen to Eliminate al Queda Leaders

January 27, 2010 /EIN PRESSWIRE/ The US has engaged in a six-week operation in Yemen against al Queda that has resulted in the deaths of six regional al Qaeda leaders in that country, The Washington Post reports.

President Barack Obama approved a December 24 operation that targeted at a compound where a US citizen, who is still at large, was meeting with regional al Qaeda leaders.

Although the US advises on the plans for these missions in Yemen, as well as develop tactics and provide weapons, the Yemeni forces are the active participants in this al Qaeda hunt. This cooperation means the Yemeni troops are privy to highly sensitive intelligence, which The Post says includes electronic and video surveillance, 3-D terrain maps and analysis of the al Qaeda network.
