Yemen: Drawing U.S. Radicals, Too?
From the Washington Post:
An investigative report scheduled for release Wednesday by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee cites U.S. concern over as many as three dozen American citizens who converted to Islam in prison and moved to Yemen after their release in the past year. Some of them have “dropped off the radar” of U.S. and Yemeni law enforcement and may be receiving al-Qaeda training there, the report says.
I’ll be covering the Northwest Airlines Flight 253 recriminations/reform tour — Janet Napolitano! Michael Leiter! Dennis Blair! — in the Senate Homeland Security & Government Affairs Committee in about 15 minutes. Let’s see if these prison converts show up on the committee’s radar.
