US Drone Strike Kills Six Suspects in Central Yemen

US Drone Strike Kills Six Suspects in Central Yemen:

A US drone strike has attacked and killed six people in central Yemen, in the Wadi Abidah region of Maarib Province. The six were claimed by officials as “armed al-Qaeda suspects,” though none have been identified by name so far.

Officials said that the attack took place “while they were at a meeting in a farm in the area,” suggesting this is the latest of the US “signature strikes” against al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), a type of attack which has killed large numbers of suspects, but most of dubious credibility as threats.

Obama’s Drone Warfare Makes More Terrorists Than It Kills

Obama’s Drone Warfare Makes More Terrorists Than It Kills:

Of course, drone strikes were always more about convenience than effectiveness… Because this is a question of counterterrorism, maintaining Obama’s drone war becomes outright dangerous to U.S. security. To be sure, the president is unlikely to admit the failure of his signature tactic before he leaves office in January, but for the next president, a reexamination of our drone war’s effectiveness should be at the top of the to-do list.

Obama’s Drone-Missile Machinery of Murder

Obama’s Drone-Missile Machinery of Murder:

Late Friday evening, the Obama administration released a previously secret policy document that gives general instructions to those engaged in preparing, approving and carrying out the drone-missile assassinations that have become the hallmark of Obama’s eight years in the White House….

The 18-page document makes clear that what has taken place since Obama entered the White House is the routinization and bureaucratization of state killings. Literally any individual on the planet could be targeted for assassination by a Hellfire missile fired from a US Reaper drone.

How Extrajudicial Executions Became Policy in Washington

How Extrajudicial Executions Became Policy in Washington:

However it is achieved… the United States has now embraced extrajudicial executions on foreign soil. Successive administrations have implemented this momentous change with little public discussion….

The Bush administration launched the assassination program in October 2001 in Afghanistan, expanded it in 2002 to Yemen and went from there. Under Obama, with an actual White House “kill list,” the use of drones has again expanded, this time nine-fold, with growing numbers of attacks in Pakistan, Yemen, Libya and Somalia, as well as in the Afghan, Iraqi and Syrian war zones….

Such killings – at least when they take place outside a declared war zone – are almost certainly illegal. That is, they are murders, plain and simple.
