46 Points | Nothing much happened to al-Qaeda forces after the bombings of the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998, or the attack on the U.S.S. Cole just before the 2000 election. But the current war on terror is making up for lost opportunities. Inside Yemen, a CIA-controlled Predator drone fired a missile on a vehicle carrying six suspected al-Qaeda terrorists, including Abu Ali al-Harithi, believed to be an architect of the Cole attack, which killed 17 Americans. On Yemen's national television, the government of President Ali Abdallah Salih called on "our countrymen who have been entangled in membership of the al-Qaeda organization to repent ... and renounce all means of violence." The Financial Times reported on its website that the Iranian government had captured one of Osama bin Laden's sons, Saad, 22, and banished him to Pakistan. But government officials would not confirm the story, saying they could not verify the identities of dozens of infiltrators deported from the eastern border areas, since their identification papers are often fakes.
