Lieberman: Next Stop On The War On Terror Express – Yemen!

Yesterday, Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-MI) and Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CT) told Fox News viewers about the latest country posing a threat to America: Yemen.

Lieberman was particularly dire, warning that “if we don’t act preemptively, Yemen will be tomorrow’s war.”

On Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace asked Hoekstra and Lieberman what kind of attitude America should take toward Yemen.

Hoekstra replied that “Yemen is a hot spot, we need to do everything we can to work with that government.”

He continued: “We have about 90 Yemenese left in Gitmo. They should stay there, they should not go back to Yemen. If they go back to Yemen we will very soon find them back on the battlefield going after Americans and other Western interests.”

Lieberman agreed with Hoekstra:

“It would be a mistake to send these 90 people back to Yemen because based on the past of what’s happened when we released people from Guantanamo, a certain number of them have gone back into the fight against us.”

Lieberman went even further, referencing a recent trip to Yemen during which a U.S. official there said to him: “Iraq was yesterday’s war. Afghanistan is today’s war. If we don’t act pre-emptively, Yemen will be tomorrow’s war. That’s the danger we face.”
