YemenYes? YemenNo? Part Two

Sure, we closed our embassy in Yemen.

And sure, the White House thinks Yemen is "unstable." And yah, KnickerBomber was trained there.

But nevermind. We're sending terrorists to Yemen!

On Fox News Sunday, top White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan said the administration "absolutely" intends to keep sending Guantanamo prisoners to Yemen. The administration has sent seven detainees to the country, Brennan said, with six of those sent in December. "Several of those detainees were put into Yemeni custody right away," Brennan said. He did not elaborate on how many is "several" or where the other Guantanamo inmates sent to Yemen might be today. But he said the U.S. has faith in Yemen to handle the situation.

Even Sen. "Call Me Senator" Feinstein thinks this is a stupid policy.

We need to chronicle all of this, so when a Yemen-based terrorist kills Americans on American soil, we have the case against Obama's next term in the bag.

Are they really relying on the far left and the media (but I repeat myself) to spin a terror attack in their favor? To play the "It's Bush's Fault!" card and blame the attacks on a man not holding any political office anymore?

Obama does realize an attack will spell the end of his political career, right?
