Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney Says it's Time for "Radical Islam" to be "Attacked from Mecca and Medina" - Video 12/31/09
Here is video of former Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney on Fox News today where he talked about what possible strikes against Al-Qaeda in Yemen would look like. Reports
McInerney said there are "at least 1,000 Al-Qaeda in Yemen." In comparison, McInerney said there are maybe "50-100 in Afghanistan." "They have moved to Yemen," according to McInerney. The General said we clearly have the capability to strike those targets, but said that alone won't do the job if President Obama continues to refuse to recognize that we are in a "Global War on Terror."
McInerney said Al-Qaeda in Yemen is hiding in villages, making the chances of "collateral damage" much greater. But the General said we cannot let that keep us from striking them where they are.
McInerney said radical Islam needs to be attacked from Saudi Arabia - from Mecca and Medina - where they need to tell Muslims that they "will not go to heaven" by dying in a terrorist attack.
