A terrorist video released on Friday by the Pentagon to show what it called intelligence gleaned by the recent raid in Yemen actually was made about 10 years ago, it acknowledged. Defense officials canceled a briefing they had called to discuss the value of the information recovered from Yemen and took the video off the website of the U.S.
Navy Capt. Jeff Davis, a Defense Department spokesman, stuck by the Pentagon’s main argument: Al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula remains dangerous and wants to recruit and train people to attack the West. “Even though the video is old, it shows their intent,” he told reporters.
