As we now know, on December 17, 2009, President Obama ordered an air attack — using Tomahawk cruise missiles and cluster bombs — on the village of al Majala in Yemen’s southern Abyan province; the strike ended the lives of 14 women and 21 children. At the time, the Yemeni government outright lied about the attack, falsely claiming that it was Yemen’s air force which was responsible.from Obama’s personal role in a journalist’s imprisonment
Shaye traveled to al Majala. What he discovered were the remnants of Tomahawk cruise missiles and cluster bombs.... He revealed that among the victims of the strike were women, children and the elderly. To be exact, fourteen women and twenty-one children were killed. Whether anyone actually active in Al Qaeda was killed remains hotly contested.from Why Is President Obama Keeping a Journalist in Prison in Yemen?
Shaye was held in solitary confinement for thirty-four days with no access to a lawyer. His family did not even know where he had been taken or why.
Word of the impending pardon leaked in the Yemeni press. “That same day,” Barman says, “the president [Saleh] received a phone call from Obama expressing US concerns over the release of Abdulelah Haider [Shaye].”
The answer to that question is that Shaye was reporting the reality of the "war on terror," as opposed to the virtual reality or fantasy that we're supposed to be fed. The reality is that it's partly intended as a Satanic reign of terror designed to create an "Apocalyptic" hell on Earth, and that air-terrorism is a key aspect of this. Another reality is that it's intended as a war on the global economy, by effectively preventing the construction and use of the Eurasian Land-Bridge through this key region. Iran has recently completed a key section of the Land-Bridge, reflecting a progressive economic orientation, and it is precisely this progressive orientation which the British want to reverse, as they did by assassinating JFK.
Another perspective on the "war on terror" is that it is advanced SRA on a vast scale (most US soldiers are victims, not perpetrators). The only "evidence" that it is a "war on terror" (as if that's possible) is the false narrative being imposed upon it by the same media which used certain aspects of Shaye's reports, and is now silent about the fact that Obama has used his position to ensure that Shaye remains in a Yemeni "Guantanamo." Of course, Obama was acting on orders from the British empire, which is running this "war." He issued orders for the Yemeni air strike only because those who really run the "war" told him to, so that now he is considered to be the ultimate authority behind it.
