‘Killed’ Al Qaeda Resurfaces

An al Qaeda member wanted by the FBI for the U.S.S. Cole bombing has surfaced in Yemen—despite being reported dead two months ago following a CIA drone strike. Fahd al Quso, apparently living in a mountainous region of Yemen, had his picture taken with a Yemeni journalist who interviewed him last week. German and Pakistani officials had initially reported Quso’s death, but U.S. intelligence officials never confirmed it and even expressed skepticism in private. Quso was described as defiant and healthy, and the journalist who interviewed him says he’s been protected by tribesmen.
