US drone strike kills 13 civilians in Yemen

“This was one of the very few times when our target was completely missed. It was a mistake, but we hope it will not hurt our anti-terror efforts in the region,” a senior Yemeni Defense Ministry official told CNN. The official asked not to be named because of the sensitivity of the issue.

“You want us to stay quiet while our wives and brothers are being killed for no reason. This attack is the real terrorism,” said Mansoor al-Maweri, who was near the scene of the strike.

A senior Defense Ministry official said the strike initially targeted two members of al-Thahab clan who lead the terror network’s operations in the province. He said the militants were in a vehicle near the one that was hit, and fled unharmed.

It is high time to ground

It is high time to ground these drones. Thousands of faceless, nameless victims of drones are considered nothing more than "collateral damage" to our gov/military officials. It is disgusting and inhumane. I feel that if one is going to take a life, that was never theirs to take, one should have the courage and decency to look that human being in the eyes before pulling the trigger.



“I would not be surprised if a hundred tribesmen joined the lines of al Qaeda as a result of the latest drone mistake,” said Nasr Abdullah, an activist in the district of the attack. “This part of Yemen takes revenge very seriously.”

I am so sickened by my own country! In tears over this...

I'm too disgusted to comment, but....

I'd like to know what their definition of very few is. I'm sure it's a lot different than mine.
