It seems that it is “open season” on US ambassadors these days.
Before the assassination of the US ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, last year, the last time a US ambassador had been killed was 32 years earlier when the US ambassador to Afghanistan was murdered.
Now, Al Qaeda is targeting another US ambassdor: Gerald Feierstein, the US ambassador to Yemen.
In fact, Al Qaeda is willing to pay $160,000 in gold if someone will murder Feierstein.
In addition to that bounty, Al Qaeda is offering $23,000 in gold for the murder of any US serviceman in Yemen.
