Thats a pretty overgeneralizing statement to call socialists "militant". True there are militant socialists. But then again there are also militant everything; capitalists, libetarians, pick your ideology your sure to find militant subsets. Same with authoritarian. True there are authoritatiran socialists but there are also authoritarian capitalits. There are also libetarian, democratic, and anarchistic socialists. Same with capitalists. And whats obsessive mean?

It was a VERY simple statement, why are you having trouble understanding?
Thats not the first appology they released. They also appologised for the 2005 bomings in Amman Jordan, because after the attacks hundreds of thousands went on the streets in that country protesting against Al Quaida.
These people are very aware of their public image.
I just have to wonder what this particular group is capable of. I assume this is part of AQAP's al-Baydah province group.U.S. drone strikes in Yemen have inflicted heavy losses on al-Qaida militants and are part of a joint U.S.-Yemeni campaign against a group which Washington has called the most dangerous branch of the global terrorist network. (AQAP)
But a Dec. 12 drone attack that mistook a wedding party convoy for an al-Qaida convoy, killing 15 people, has fueled anger against the United States and the government in Sanaa among a Yemeni public already opposed to the strikes.
Yemen's parliament later urged the government to end the use of Yemen's airspace by U.S.
Which is intertwined in tribal affairs. Not to say they aren't dangerous actors.
Still I wonder what international capabilities they have stiil, as Yemen is glad for the US to fight a proxy war.
Pretty clear that the hospital attack was by a lone gunman. Not to dismiss it, but this guy Qassim al-Rimi is one of 23 men who escaped in the 3 February 2006 prison-break in Yemen, along with other notable al-Qaeda members, and whom's death has been reported multiple times.

So we gotta wonder if it's the same AQ, or just a name given to a field commander.
To the point of the apology on the hospital attack. Notice the US never apologizes, muchless barely acknowledges a "mistake"

Column: When your drones kill people at a wedding, an apology might be in orderThe drone strike was followed, as always, by silence from Washington, which has acknowledged carrying out drone strikes in Yemen but never publicly comments on individual attacks. The Yemeni government, however, released a statement the following day that said the strike targeted al-Qaida militants, but neglected to mention either the country that carried out the attack or the apparent civilian casualties
**** happens, a lone gunman atack, and the US systematic targeting...well this is our payoff for perpetual war.
