Yemen: A New Base for al-Qaida

  • Aired: 11/05/2010
  • 18:03
  • Expires: 11/05/2015
  • Rating: NR
"Terrorism" was virtually ignored as a policy discussion during the entire campaign season, but the Yemeni explosives found on two airliners bound for the U.S. remind us that we ignore the subject at our peril. With rare footage shot in Yemen with that troubled country's counter-terrorism forces, and a report from Afghanistan with American troops, Need to Know conducts an in-depth update.
