Yemen-based al Qaeda "serious" US threat-US military

WASHINGTON, Nov 21 (Reuters) - Al Qaeda’s Yemen-based branch is a “serious” threat to the United States and has become substantially more dangerous over the past two years, the top U.S. military officer said on Sunday.

“This branch of al Qaeda is very lethal and I believe them -- in terms of what they say they’re trying to do (to attack the United States),” Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the U.S. military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, told CNN television’s State of the Union program.
