Yemen Arrests Suspect in USS Cole Bombing

Folks, why has it taken so long for someone to get arrested for this act of war against America? Oh, I forgot, it occurred under Clinton’s watch and Jamie Gorelick’s.

Security forces have arrested a Yemeni man suspected of involvement in the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole that killed 17 American sailors, a security official said Thursday.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the man played a major role in the attack that saw two homicide bombers ram an explosives-laden boat into the destroyer in the harbor of Aden.

The man was identified only by his surname, al-Nagar. It was not immediately clear what his exact role was in the Oct. 12, 2000, attack, which has been blamed on Usama bin Laden’s Al Qaeda network.
