NPR is running a story (link here) on "Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula" (AQAP)... and the misguided little tool Anwar al-Awlaki (he's not a "firebrand", he's a pathetically sad little sack).  Yemen's the only place where such a pimple on the face of the world could hide on the "Peninsula" since the Jordanians, Saudis, Omanis, and Qataris have a much more advanced and totalitarian grip on their countries, and the Abu Dabian Emirates have a much more modern and open society where such a fundamentalist anachronism would stick out and look as obviously foolish as a stupid engineer-turn-preacher calling for the end of the world.
