Al-Qaeda’s Yemen-based wing vows small-scale attacks on the US

“Al-Qaeda’s Yemen-based wing is reported to have what it calls a “strategy of a thousand cuts” to hurt the U.S. economy with frequent small-scale attacks.

In an online magazine, the group al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula said such methods against U.S. targets would be a cheap way to “bring down America.”

The group said it can play on what it calls the “security phobia that is sweeping America.”

The strategy, also referred to as Operation Hemorrhage, could further weaken the U.S. economy by increasing security costs, the group said.”
