Video Shows Underwear Bomber Training With Al Qaeda

ABC News has apparently gotten its hands on a video showing the Christmas Day underwear bomber, Abdul Farouk Abdul Mutallab, training with al Qaeda in Yemen.

The footage can be found here. In addition to the typical martyrdom statement, the real key is that other individuals are visible and potentially identifiable and the US needs to figure out who these others are. This particular camp was apparently also under US surveillance because a section of video shows a UAV flying overhead and the terrorists' futile attempts to shoot it down.

Mutallab may be able to help authorities figure out who else was there and their potential targets and whereabouts.

Another section of video also appears to confirm ties between al Qaeda and Anwar al-Awlaki.
