U.S. Kills Hundreds in Yemen War

December 10, 2012

According to a report released this fall by Yemen’s National Organization for Defending Rights and Freedoms, over 300 people have been killed in U.S. unmanned drone attacks since the beginning of 2012.

Although the Obama administration refuses to disclose specifics about its war in Yemen, senior administration officials have admitted that the White House approves each drone strike and approves strikes even when the identities of the targets are unknown.

These terrorist attacks are carried out by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) and usually involve remote controlled or pre-programmed aircraft known as "drones" which launch missiles at targets.

In September over 100 U.S. marines were deployed to Yemen.

On December 8 thousands of Yemenis gathered in Sa'ada to demand "U.S. troops out" and an end to all U.S. interference in Yemen.
