First, a big and heartfelt thanks to all of you who  have continued to check Waq al-waq over the past few months as I've struggled to overcome several technical issues.  (Yes, I did received all your e-mails, and thanks for your concern.) Thanks also to the crack team at Big Think those now seem to be resolved and you can once again expect Waq al-waq posts at a steady clip.

I will also see if I can get the handful of post I wrote on Ansar al-Shariah and AQAP transferred back to this page.  In the meantime stay tuned for a post on Yemen's elections tomorrow.
