American photojournalist, Luke Somers, and a South African teacher held by al-Qaida militants in Yemen were killed Saturday during a failed U.S.-led rescue attempt.
What went wrong? A dog barked, alerting al-Qaida assassins who murdered Somers as the 40 member rescue team arrived.
President Obama’s response, “As this and previous hostage rescue operations demonstrate, the United States will spare no effort to use all of its military, intelligence and diplomatic capabilities to bring Americans home safely, wherever they are located. And terrorists who seek to harm our citizens will feel the long arm of American justice.”
