Payback's a bitch
One day you're a hot dog Islamic terrorist, the next day you're a grease spot in the desert. I hope Abu is enjoying his dirt nap.

Also interesting is:
The Predator was being controlled by CIA operators based at a French military facility in Djibouti, a tiny nation about 160 miles west of Yemen across the Red Sea on the Horn of Africa, said a senior U.S. official who asked not to be identified. The robotic planes are based there. France has been cooperating in the U.S.-led anti-terrorism campaign in the former French colony, U.S. officials said.
To bolster that search in Yemen and nearby countries, including Somalia, Ethiopia and Sudan, the Pentagon is creating a special U.S. military command in Djibouti. It will be run by a headquarters element of the 2nd Marine Division, numbering about 400 troops. There are already about 800 U.S. Army Special Forces members in Djibouti, and French and German forces are helping to patrol the waters in the area.
