An al Qaeda operative named Nashiri, who was working with Bin Ladin, “was developing a plan to attack a ship near Yemen. On January 3 [2000], an attempt was made to attack a U.S. warship in Aden, the USS The Sullivans. The attempt failed when the small boat, overloaded with explosives, sank. The operatives salvaged their equipment without the attempt becoming known, and they put off their plans for another day.”
