Joint Operation of Yemen's Military and U.S. Drones Destroys Al Qaeda Camp, 55 Jihadis Killed

Oh man...any day you can report that 55 al Qaeda jihadis have been turned into red goo is one damn good day.

The story comes from Times of India.

55 al-Qaida militants killed in Yemen

SANAA, Yemen: Yemen's interior ministry says 55 al-Qaida militants were killed in an hours-long series of strikes on a training camp operated by the group in the country's south.

The statement on Monday said three senior members were among those killed, without elaborating. It said the identification process for those killed is continuing.

The operation, which kicked off Sunday and is believed to have involved US drones, targeted a sprawling training camp of al-Qaida in the rugged mountains of Mahfad between Abyan, Shabwa and al-Bayda provinces.

Security officials said the camp's infrastructure was destroyed.

Washington considers Yemen's al-Qaida branch to be the most active in the world.

So much for Obama not having a spine.

Maybe giving credit where credit is due is the honest thing to do. In this instance at least.
