Imagine That

An al-Qaida operative sentenced to death for plotting the
USS Cole bombing that killed 17 sailors in 2000 was among a group of convicts who escaped from a Yemen prison last week, Interpol said Sunday in issuing a global security alert.


The convicts escaped via a 140-yard-long tunnel "dug by the prisoners and coconspirators outside," Interpol said. The Yemeni official said the prison was at the central headquarters of the country's military intelligence services in a building in the center of the capital.

That sure is some "intelligence service" they have there in Yemen.

Unless... nah, it couldn't be... I don't suppose they WANTED these guys to escape, did they?

Looks like the real "al-Qaeda threat" is nothing more than a few dozens of Arabic looking hardcore criminals and that few elements of various intel services are desperate for these kind of scumbags that they have to release old assets from 5 years old hack jobs!
