The US embassy in Yemen received a warning about this pending attack hours before gunmen drove by and fired shots:
Unknown gunmen opened fire at a checkpoint outside the U.S. embassy in Yemen on Monday, hours after the mission said it received a threat, but a Yemeni official said no one was hurt.
“Police are chasing the car that opened fire. No one seems to have been hurt. It was a checkpoint leading to the embassy, and not close to the building,” the official told Reuters.
The embassy had earlier urged Americans to be cautious in the Arab country that has been the scene of al Qaeda attacks on Western interests.
The incident comes on the heels of al Qaeda’s latest love letter from two Gitmo recidivists who are now top al Qaeda leaders in Yemen — and in the wake of business ties between AG nominee Eric Holder and his Yemen Gitmo detainee-representing law firm, Covington & Burling.
How’s that restoration of America’s good name going, President O?
