The recent ‘mysterious’ escape of 23 prisoners from a maximum-security intelligence facility in Yemen was orchestrated by the government to transfer them to U.S. custody, circumventing Yemen’s extradition laws. Certainly the U.S. has a major interest in obtaining custody of the escapees. Several were convicted of complicity in the bombing of the U.S.S. Cole, which killed 17 U.S. service members on Oct. 12, 2000. Others include convicted bombers of a French oil tanker, the Lindburg. One was an American, Gaber Elbaneh, who was convicted in the U.S. of involvement in an Al Qaeda cell in Lackawana, New York.
