Yemen says U.S. drone struck a wedding convoy, killing 14 - CNN.com
Surgical precision they say, minimal civilian casualties they say. Even if in the past the US has been truthful with the number of civilians killed (and honestly what are the chances of that?), this cannot be overlooked. When are we going to realize that these killings are making more enemies than we are taking out. If somebody shot a drone into the US to take out a "strategic target" and hit a wedding convey we would be outraged, and sending out entire military overseas to deal with it. If Yemen so much as considers retaliation against the United States we would be all over them.A U.S. drone mistakenly targeted a wedding convoy in Yemen's al-Baitha province after intelligence reports identified the vehicles as carrying al Qaeda militants, two Yemeni national security officials told CNN on Thursday.
The officials said that 14 people were killed and 22 others injured, nine in critical condition. The vehicles were traveling near the town of Radda when they were attacked.
