55 People Killed by U.S. Airstrikes in Yemen
May 5, 2014
Falling back on its standard story that "enemy combatants" were "hiding among civilians," the U.S. military recently slaughtered 55 people in cold blood in Yemen.
According to the Yemeni Interior Ministry, the killings took place during a 48-hour interval between April 18 and April 20. The weapons reportedly used were unmanned aerial drones.
In Yemen, the U.S. military routinely labels its intended civilian targets "enemy combatants" and writes off deceased women, children and the elderly as "collateral damage."
