At least 7 suspected militants belonging to Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) were killed in two drone strikes carried out in southern Yemen.
The men were traveling in two cars when the drones attacked them according to a local official in the country.
The drone strikes in Yemen come just over a week after President Obama made a major public speech on the issue of drone strikes. In his speech, Obama said that he would seek to transfer the operations of drone strikes from the CIA to the Department of Defence to allow for more oversight over the operations.
Editor’s note: Note that the word “militant” is nothing but propaganda considering Obama redefined it to mean “all military-age males in a strike zone.” These people are blanket classified as “militants” even though our government officials may literally know nothing more about them than age and gender.
