Spreading Freedom 1 drone strike at a time! 4th extra-judicial killing in a week for Yemen.Submitted by go213mph on Sun, 12/30/2012 - 15:47
At least three suspected al-Qaeda militants have been killed by a US drone strike in Yemen's south-western al-Bayda province, say local officials. The men were reportedly hit as they travelled in a car in el-Manaseh village on the outskirts of Radda.
Yemeni officials said one of those killed was a senior al-Qaeda operative, Saleh Mohammed al-Ameri. The US does not usually confirm drone attacks, but this would be the fourth suspected strike in Yemen in a week.
On Friday, two suspected militants were killed in eastern Hadramout province, while at least five were killed by two strikes on 24 December. A local tribesman said the car hit by the attack late on Saturday had been "completely obliterated" and the bodies left charred.
How Obama can commit murder with completely impunity is beyond my comprehension!
