O-Bomb-ya drone strike kills wedding party in Yemen.

Air strike kills 15 civilians in Yemen by mistake: officials

Thu Dec 12, 2013 1:34pm EST

(Reuters) - Fifteen people on their way to a wedding in Yemen were killed in an air strike after their party was mistaken for an al Qaeda convoy, local security officials said on Thursday.

The officials did not identify the plane in the strike in central al-Bayda province, but tribal and local media sources said that it was a drone.

"An air strike missed its target and hit a wedding car convoy, ten people were killed immediately and another five who were injured died after being admitted to the hospital," one security official said.

Five more people were injured, the officials said.

The United States has stepped up drone strikes as part of a campaign against Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), regarded by Washington as the most active wing of the militant network.

Yemen, AQAP's main stronghold, is among a handful of countries where the United States acknowledges using drones, although it does not comment on the practice.

Human Rights Watch said in a detailed report in August that U.S. missile strikes, including armed drone attacks, have killed dozens of civilians in Yemen.

Stabilizing the country, which is also struggling with southern separatists and northern rebels, is an international priority due to fears of disorder in a state that flanks top oil producer Saudi Arabia and major shipping lanes.

On Monday, missiles fired from a U.S. drone killed at least three people travelling in a car in eastern Yemen.

I thought so.

Funny, the Secret Service took no notice of an obvious madman three feet from the POTUS.

But bump a barrier half a mile away from the White House here at home and you get a summary execution, on the street.

Just ask the family of Miriam Carey.

Bunch of nonsense...SMDH

How did what happen?

The nut get alongside the POTUS, or the heavy handed police state that is now all around us?

I suppose the answer is the same:

We are the enemy.

I don't see where Reuters has quoted anyone but "the civilians".

Is this what Reuters does when "The US won't comment"?

Question

Group run by al Qaeda terrorist invited to brief Dems on drone policy

Post  fshnski on Mon Jan 06, 2014 10:20 am

The representative of a human rights group headed by a designated al Qaeda terrorist was denied a visa by the State Department after being invited by congressional Democrats to discuss drone strikes.

Mohammad Al Ahmady, the Yemen director for Geneva-based NGO Al Karama, was expected to brief Reps. Alan Grayson (D., Fla.), Barbara Lee (D., Calif.), and Jan Schakowsky (D., Ill.) the morning of the Nov. 19, according to press release from Grayson’s office.

Ahmady, who also serves as a top official in an al Qaeda-linked Yemeni political party, did not attend because of visa issues. The State Department said it could not comment on visa matters.

Several Al Karama officials have faced terrorism allegations. Al Karama’s founder and current president Abdul Rahman Naimi was designated as a terrorist and al Qaeda supporter by the U.S. Treasury Department in December, along with the group’s Yemen representative Abdulwahab Al-Humayqani. Al Karama’s legal director, Rachid Mesli, is currently wanted for terrorism charges in Algeria.

Schakowsky’s office referred questions to Grayson and Lee, saying the other offices led the briefing.

A spokesperson for Grayson said Ahmady did not actually attend the briefing and that the terrorist designation of Al Karama’s president was “not in place at the time of the briefing, so again, we had no reason to suspect any wrongdoing on the part of Mohammad [Al Ahmady].”
Lee’s office did not respond to request for comment.

Probably a good thing, too.

Most of the time, the Government doesn't know where successful US' visa applicants are in the country!

 Shocked

Coup attempt reported in Yemen. US aircraft and drones flying overhead, prepared to evacuate the US Embassy.

Oil production stopped.

Obama’s 5 recently released Soldiers of Islam must have arrived.

It's that "Arab Spring" again...

Yemen: A "FORMER" Ally as of Yesterday...

Post  News Hawk on Mon Jan 26, 2015 1:38 pm


The US Embassy in Sanaa, Yemen released an emergency message today warning ALL US CITIZENS to “depart immediately.”

The embassy went on to say US citizens are responsible for making their own travel arrangements
.
—Gateway Pundit
Once upon a time U.S. citizens could go to the embassy where they could be protected by Marines then evacuated by the U.S. military.

But that’s when we had adults in charge.

Obama has only experienced one "bubble"—and it's not the "bubble" that starts-up a new business, thinks ahead, provides contractors in defense of our country, and works within a Capitalist system.

US' Secret Files Looted by Iran-Aligned Rebels...

Post  News Hawk on Wed Mar 25, 2015 7:49 pm

Iran-Backed Rebels in Yemen Loot Secret Files About U.S. Spy Operations


Secret intelligence files held by Yemeni security forces and containing details of American intelligence operations in the country have been looted by Iran-backed militia leaders, exposing names of informants and plans for U.S.-backed counter-terrorism operations,
U.S. officials say.

U.S. intelligence officials believe additional files were handed directly to Iranian advisors by Yemeni officials who have sided with the Houthi militias that seized control of the capital of Sana last September and later toppled the U.S.-backed president. For American intelligence networks in Yemen, the damage has been severe.
The Los Angeles Times

Not according to Josh Earnest...

Looks like those informants will now be killed. I wonder if there was information on informants in other Islamic countries? The WH policy in the Middle East just gets worse each day.

Arming Iran Again...

Post  News Hawk on Thu Mar 26, 2015 5:34 pm

Pentagon loses track of $500 million in weapons, equipment given to Yemen
From last week...
The Pentagon is unable to account for more than $500 million in U.S. military aid given to Yemen, amid fears that the weaponry, aircraft and equipment is at risk of being seized by Iranian-backed rebels or al-Qaeda, according to U.S. officials.

Is there nobody in charge here?
