The YEMEN  MILLENNIUM plot was a part of a broader Millennium Plot, coordinated by no’4 in Al Qaeda – Abu Zubaydah,  scheduled to be executed in the gulf of Aden, in South Yemen on 01/03/2000.

The plan was to attack the USS The Sullivans, a USA missile destroyer, with a suicide speed boat loaded with explosives, to punch a hole in the water line of the destroyer and to sink it. The attack boat was overloaded and sank, causing the attack to be cancelled. After 10 months, on 10/12/2000, the same cell of Al Qaeda in Yemen, linked also to the 08/07/1998 attack on USA embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, tried the same type of attack, a second time ,on the USS Cole, this time with success.
