 We talked awhile back about what I think will be the next terrorist boogeyman as painted by the US Government and media, Al Qaeda of the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).   The process of building the next boogeyman is a subtle and patient process, it starts with introducing us to the monster.  Then consistently and quietly at first they work the monster and the country in which he resides into the news cycle.  Then after we all know who and where the monster is, we look for a trigger event that can be used to raise the blood pressure of the American people.  So we know who the monster is AQAP and its leader Anwar Al-Awlaki, and we know where they are, Yemen.  So friends it’s time you get to know Yemen, here is the link to the CIA Factbook entry for Yemen:

Also we are starting to see the government increasing attention on Yemen, in the news today we see that Secretary of State Clinton made a surprise visit to Yemen:
