WASHINGTON (AP) — The CIA thwarted an ambitious plot by al-Qaida’s affiliate in Yemen to destroy a U.S.-bound airliner using a bomb with a sophisticated new design around the one-year anniversary of the killing of Osama bin Laden, The Associated Press has learned.
So far, so good, but here’s what will have the Democrats drooling and howling for heads next year:
The would-be suicide bomber, based in Yemen, had not yet picked a target or bought a plane ticket when the CIA stepped in and seized the bomb, officials said. It’s not immediately clear what happened to the alleged bomber.
It’s pretty clear to me what’s happened to the bomber: he’s being interrogated to discover the rest of the plot and who his co-conspirators are. This is the kind of thing that, long ago, Nancy Pelosi encouraged but like most politicians, she was for it before she was against it, and as 9/11 faded from her base’s tiny minds, she switched sides.
The latest circus going on down Gitmo way with all right-minded people decrying the torture of Khalid the Beloved of Allah (the exact guy Pelosi encouraged the CIA to ‘go harder” on, just as a by the way) shows what’s in store for these CIA operatives. Should have milked the guy dry and then dumped him out onto the desert from 5,000 feet.
He could keep his underwear on.
