Al Qaeda in Yemen Offer Three Kilograms of Gold For U.S. Ambassador's Head

Al-Qaeda in Yemen has begun to offer bounties for anyone who kills U.S. soldiers and officials in their country, including the U.S. ambassador. The group has reportedly posted on Islamist websites that they will give 5 million rials (a little more than 23,000 U.S. dollars) to anyone who kills an American solider in Yemen within the next six months and also offered three kilograms of gold for the death of the United States ambassador to Sanaa, who is currently Gerald Feierstein.

    Speaking of gold - I'm still wondering what happened to all that gold Khadafy had. I don't guess our State Department or the CIA would know anything about that, huh?
