Brian Ross, Muhammad al-‘Awfi and errors on Yemen

ABC News corrected its story that Muhammad al-‘Awfi was involved in planning the Christmas Day attempted attack. This has only been one of many errors that the eagle-eyes at Waq al-waq have detected in the past several days of shrill reporting. We haven’t posted on them yet, but hopefully the reporters and “Yemen experts” that have popped up in recent days will get their facts a bit more in-line before spouting off.

Oh, and while US officials may not be able to say where al-‘Awfi lives, Waq al-waq can: he is in Riyadh.
