Days of clashes between government troops and opposition forces have brought hard living conditions for residents of northern Sanaa, the capital of Yemen. Liu Yue takes a close look at what life is like for people at the epicenter of the crisis. Life here has already been greatly changed as the capital turns into a battlefield. Debris is everywhere. Each part of the city tells a story. The headquarter of Yemen Airlines used to be the landmark of this block. But after days of clashes, the building has been burned out. And the area is still guarded by military forces. Elsewhere in another community, life is even harder. People cannot forget what they have been through.

Previously-unseen video footage has surfaced online, allegedly showing the crash of an Iranian military jet at an air show two years ago. It captures the moment the Ilyushin IL-76MD military plane falls to earth and explodes, after a mid-air collision with F-5E Tiger II. The haunting video was filmed by the crew of a C-130 that was filming the refuelling of an F-4 Phantom II. The planes were taking part in the September 22, 2009 air show and parade just outside Tehran. All seven crewmembers on board the IL-76MD were killed in the crash.

This is deplaning Southwest Airlines at gate B2 at El Paso Airport in El Paso, TX. I have never deplaned from this gate before. Delta Airlines used to use this gate before they built the food court. Now, Delta uses only gate B1, and I think gate A3. This jetway looks a lot different from the other Southwest jetways. It is not as wide and it is a straight jetway. The other Southwest jetways are in a right angle. This jetway resembles a jetway in Lubbock Airport.

Daily News @ RevolutionNews.US — Yemen-based American radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki was a guest speaker at the Pentagon just months after the September 11 terror attacks, new documents have revealed. The US had launched air strikes against al-Awlaki, the first American on the Central Investigation Agency's (CIA) kill or capture list, in Yemen following Osama bin Laden's death, but he escaped. This is contrast to the February 5, 2002, when the radical imam was invited to and attended the Pentagon event, Fox News reoports. An internal Department of Defense email that announced the event with Awlaki also revealed other details, like a proposed menu including pork, which is prohibited for Muslims. The email states "the chef will create something special for vegetarians." The document also revealed that over 70 people were invited by the Defense Department's Office of the General Counsel. "I have reserved one of the executive dining rooms for February 5th, which is the date he (Awlaki) preferred. He will be leaving for an extensive period of time on February 11," a defense department lawyer wrote in the e-mail. The e-mail states that al-Awlaki was the featured guest speaker on "Islam and Middle Eastern Politics and Culture." The Defense Department lawyer who vetted the imam wrote that she "had the privilege of hearing one of Awlaki's presentations in November and was impressed by both the extent of his knowledge and by how he communicated that information and handled a ...

But what was it doing so far off course, flying over Soviet military installations the day of a secret missile test? What happened to the bodies?

A Vallejo man holding a Yemeni passport tried to break into the locked cockpit of an American Airlines flight bound for San Francisco before crew members and passengers, including two retired law enforcement officers, were able to subdue him, authorities said Monday. Rageh Ahmed Mohammed Al-Murisi, 28, who was carrying a California identification card in addition to his Yemeni passport, was wrestled to the floor of the Boeing 737 near the end of the four-hour flight Sunday night. He was charged in US District Court in San Francisco with interfering with a flight crew and is scheduled to appear in court today with an Arabic interpreter. Al-Murisi, 28, suffered minor injuries as a result of being tackled, but no one else was injured, and flight safety was not compromised, authorities said. San Francisco airport police Sgt. Michael Rodriguez said it's not clear what Al-Murisi had in mind and that the suspect had no known ties to terrorism. The incident began about 8:50 pm when American Airlines Flight 1561, carrying 156 passengers and six crew members from O'Hare International Airport in Chicago, was about a half hour from landing at San Francisco International Airport, authorities said.
BBC Description: On Christmas Day 2009, as Northwest Airlines Flight 253 began its descent towards Detroit Metropolitan Airport, a 23-year-old man left the airplane toilet, returned to his seat and pulled a blanket across his lap. He then attempted to detonate a device containing military-grade explosive PETN, a deadly bomb designed to take the plane out of the sky. With powerful eyewitness testimony and in-depth expert analysis, this timely documentary examines how alleged bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab slipped under the US intelligence radar and evaded three sets of airport security. From Abdulmutallab's student days in London, via his time in the Al Qaeda hotspot of Yemen, to the final leg of his journey on a flight bound for the USA, the timeline of this story throws up important questions. What did security services know about him before he boarded the plane? What would have happened to the 290 passengers and crew on board if the bomb had detonated successfully? What lessons have be learned? And, in the aftermath of this attack, how safe is it to fly?
Jamie Smith joins FOX News anchors on Christmas Day to discuss the arrest of alleged Yemeni bomber.
Flight 253 details: The government of Yemen reports that Islamic terrorists there have been arrested who have proven ties to Israeli intelligence. The alleged terrorists in Yemen had been in Guantanamo Prison. They were released without trial by the Bush Administration even though they were reported as among the most dangerous detainees. Abdulmutallab's father, though we are told is a retired "Nigerian banker," ran their defense industry in close cooperation with Israeli Intelligence (Mossad). Abdulmutallab's father warned US embassy officials of his son's dangerous behavior; this is corroborated with other US intelligence of warning. Abdulmutallab's visa to the US was never withdrawn, though he was on a "terrorist watchlist." This would make his trip impossible unless protocol was ignored. Flying from Nigeria, Abdulmutallab entered the Netherlands without passing through customs; impossible to do without assistance from an intelligence agency. At the Amsterdam airport, Abdulmutallab was assisted by a man appearing to be Indian, who claimed Abdulmutallab was a Sudanese refugee with no passport (he would not have been allowed to enter the EU without a passport through customs). This man and whoever authorized boarding without a passport are huge stories we haven't heard. Where is the airport videos of this? Airport security in Amsterdam is contracted to an Israeli company with the most sophisticated technologies who had developed the concept of security profiling. During ...

Christmas time now stands for DHS media hyped terror in America. The DHS Flight 253 holiday, literally, a time for fear. Wikileaks dumps fake documents about the Iran-Saudi Proxy Cold War Houthi Rebellion of 2009. Flight 253 was FAKE, the justification that came after killing whole villages in airstrikes for three months in 2009. The CIA used the drones for the for Saudi Intrests against Houthi villages, Wikileaks blames Yemen? There you have it, more evidence that wikileaks should be looked at with extreme caution. Be real afraid as they pick your pocket and steal everything you have, funding your future enemies with new arms races that they can fight later. The cold war ended but the beast still needed blood to get money. Terror is the pretext for global welfare under the guise of security, all stolen from the US taxpayers total saved wealth. Militias are illegal, your rights gone one piece at a time. Keep working, as they raise taxes, cut schools, increase police state funding, and ignore the same Constitution that gives them power to serve these people. There is nothing in the US Constitution that says we should pay the world to keep safe, that is paying ransom and extortion. Every government official thats surfs fear for their personal agenda is guilty of NOT keeping you safe, they are keeping you afraid ..... the opposite of why we would want to feel safe.

CIA to Yemen after Mail Bomb Plot False Flag Hoax AQAP is fiction al qaeda is fiction it's al CIAda

whatreallyhappened.com Obama's "scare the Americans into voting Democratic" plan is already in trouble. The official story on Friday October 29th was that an unnamed ally issued a warning for British authorities to be on the lookout for a suspicious package sent from Yemen to Great Britain on a UPS flight. A search of the UPS flighty on the ground in Britain yielded a package containing a printer toner cartridge sprayed with a white substance that looks like plastic Christmas tree snow. But the story gets better! The original claim was that the suspicious package originated in Yemen and flew to Britain on an aircraft owned by UPS, and the media showed us all the video of a UPS aircraft being stopped and searched on the runway in Britain. But there is a problem. There are no UPS aircraft flying in and out of Yemen! UPS own website (from before the so-called terror incident) does not list Yemen as one of their service regions. A PDF file (which includes the history of the document from weeks ago) listing of all the international airports the UPS aircraft fleet flies to does not list Yemen as a destination! In short, there was not and could not be a UPS aircraft flying out of Yemen. UPS uses a subcontractor, Sun Tours, to handle shipping in and out of Yemen. Sun Tours sends their shipments via Yemenia Air, and Yemenia Air's Cargo Director reports there were no shipments sent through Yemen to Chicago for the 48 hours prior to the "discovery" of the toner cartridge in Britain ...
WASHINGTON -- Authorities on three continents thwarted multiple terrorist attacks aimed at the United States from Yemen on Friday, seizing two explosive packages addressed to Chicago-area synagogues and packed aboard cargo jets. The plot triggered worldwide fears that al-Qaida was launching a major new terror campaign. President Barack Obama called the coordinated attacks a "credible terrorist threat," and US officials said they were increasingly confident that al-Qaida's Yemen branch, the group responsible for the failed Detroit airliner bombing last Christmas, was responsible. Parts of the plot might remain undetected, Obama's counterterror chief warned. "The United States is not assuming that the attacks were disrupted and is remaining vigilant," John Brennan said at the White House. One of the packages was found aboard a cargo plane in Dubai, the other in England. Preliminary tests indicated the packages contained the powerful industrial explosive PETN, the same chemical used in the Christmas attack, US officials said. The tests had not been confirmed. In the US, cargo planes were searched up and down the Eastern Seaboard, and an Emirates Airlines passenger jet was escorted down the coast to New York by American fighter jets. No explosives were found aboard those planes, though the investigation was continuing on at least two.
Las autoridades y agencias de inteligencia de Estados Unidos continúan inspeccionando, con máximo celo, los aviones provenientes desde Yemen, luego de que ayer la Policía británica notificara la presencia de un paquete sospechoso al interior de una de las naves. Conocida la noticia, el Gobierno norteamericano dispuso como medida precautoria la revisión exhaustiva de las aeronaves comerciales y de carga de las compañías Emirates Airlines y United Parcel Service (UPS). La alerta quedó evidenciada esta tarde, luego que un avión de pasajeros de Emirates Airlines -procedente de Yemen- aterrizara en el aeropuerto John F. Kennedy de Nueva York, tras ser escoltado por aviones militares canadienses y estadounidenses. Previamente, aeronaves de carga fueron revisados en Newark (Nueva Jersey) y Filadelfia (Pensylvania). Sin embargo, se descartó la presencia de explosivos. Según se informó más tarde, los paquetes sospechosos despachados desde Yemen estaban dirigidos a edificios de la colectividad judía en Chicago.

Dutch officials say two men arrested on what officials at first said could be a terrorism dry run have been released without charges being filed against them.The report comes after the Associated Press quoted an official as saying that it was "99 percent certain" that Ahmed Mohamed Nasser al Soofi and Hezem al Murisi would be released.The men were arrested after federal air marshals monitored them on a flight to Amsterdam.There were reports Tuesday that the FBI said this was probably not a test run for a terror attack -- and that the US does not expect to charge the men.Also, the Department of Homeland Security Tuesday released a statement saying "these two passengers have not been charged in the United States and we caution against jumping to any conclusions."It was at this time 9 years ago that the 9/11 plotters were doing test runs for that horrific attack on the United States. Because of that -- and the fact that authorities are on heightened alert for a possible hijacking of a US flight in the Middle East -- these men were detained to figure out exactly what they were up to.Cell phone video taken by a passenger on United Airlines Flight 908 after it landed in Amsterdam Monday morning shows Dutch officials calmly taking 2 men into custody.

This is what a huge whopper lie looks like, all the earmarks of Flight 253 with an Alabama Al Shabaab twist. Two men have been arrested at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport on suspicion of preparing a terrorist attack. The men were captured on Monday at the request of US authorities when they arrived on a flight from Chicago. TV network ABC was one of the earliest to report the arrests: "We're learning about another alleged attempt terrorist attack with Detroit ties. Two men taken off a United Airlines flight headed from Chicago to Amsterdam have been charged now with preparation of a terrorist attack. One man is identified as Ahmed Mohamed Nasser al-Soofi from Detroit. No word on where the second man is from." The men were assumed to be Yemenis. It later turned out the two were not related in any way and investigations subsequently focused on Mr al-Soofi. Suspicious items The US Homeland Security Department had warned Dutch judicial authorities that "suspicious items" had been spotted in the men's luggage. The objects in question were "not dangerous in themselves", but looked like "fake bombs", according to US broadcaster ABC. One of the suspects carried 7000 dollars in cash. The ABC report said, "Police found a cell phone taped to a Pepto-Bismol bottle, three cell phones taped together and also several watches. However, no explosives were found. This investigation continues." It is not clear why the men were allowed to fly on to Europe despite having been identified as ...
