Obama administration officials say there are no plans to put regular troops into al Qaeda-infested Yemen, but that is only half the story. CIA spooks and operatives from the Joint Special Operations Command, the supersecret home of Delta Force, are in Yemen, say officials. They are working with a highly specialized unit known for hacking terrorist computers, intercepting phone calls, and tracking militants from the air. Meanwhile, with Yemen emerging as the next Pakistan in the war on terrorism, officials say that the president is eyeing an increase from 58,000 to 72,000 Army Rangers, Navy SEALs, Delta Force members, and Green Berets for the Special Operations Command based in Tampa.
