Al Qaeda’s franchise in Yemen released a web video Saturday calling for supporters to continue the protests across the Middle East.
The group also singled out Saudi Arabia for giving asylum to Tunisia’s ousted president. Won’t it be great when our biggest ally in the region – the country who agreed to produce more oil to help us keep gas prices down – is wrapped up in this violence too?
And the best part of all? Check out who the speaker on the video is:
The speaker on the audio tape is identified as Ibrahim al-Rubeish, a former detainee at the U.S.-run Guantanamo Bay lockup. The tape was produced by al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, a Yemen-based offshoot of the terror network, according to the SITE Intel group, a U.S.-based group that monitors extremist websites.
Any takers on how long it will take Obama to throw the Saudi government under the bus?
