    Interpol: USS Cole Attack Planner Escapes

    LYON, France - A man considered a mastermind of the USS Cole bombing that killed 17 sailors in a Yemeni port in 2000 was among 23 people who escaped from a Yemen prison last week, Interpol said Sunday. The international police agency issued an "urgent global security alert" for those who escaped Friday from the prison via a tunnel. It called the escapees "dangerous individuals."

    A Yemen security official announced the escape of convicted al-Qaida members Friday but did not provide details. Interpol said in a statement that at least 13 of the 23 escapees were convicted al-Qaida fighters, who escaped via a 140-yard-long tunnel "dug by the prisoners and co-conspirators outside."

    What the heck kind of security was in that prison,that a 140 yard tunnel was dug underneath their very noses,and they were oblivious to it?

    I know. The more and more than I hear about it on the news, the more I think the tunnel was being dug from somewhere else to get them out until just the right time. It just seems way too convenient. How the heck do you dig a tunnel in a prison anway? With their bare hands? :waitasec:
    Hogwash. I don't buy it.

    Something's up. Scary.

    The tunnel began in a nearby mosque, and was dug from there. You have to figure that a lot of mosque attendees knew what was going on. That's a lot of dirt that needs to go somewhere.

    This guy is exceptionally dangerous.
